Product Focus: Kissaluvs Marvels & Cloth-N-Go Bag

We are so excited to do a Product Focus on Kissaluvs new products. Be sure to check out Fluff Friday 36 for 5 great giveaway's!

Marvels by Kissaluvs. These one-size fitted cloth diapers might just be one of the best quality diapers around! They're easy-to-fasten and they include a snap-on soaker for added absorbency and protection. Available in 3 scrumptious prints: Zoo-Blue, Mocca Swirl, and Two-Hoots prints. $24.95 ea.
Kissa's Cloth-n-Go Bag. This PUL-lined zippered wet tote holds one cloth diaper inside and a pack of wipes and a diaper sprayer in the two outer pockets. It also has a functional handle that can snap to hang on around your wrist or stroller handle. $12.95 ea.

Once upon a time, there was a dining room. The room was in a house in Houston, Texas. At a table in the dining room, a family often ate wonderful meals. Something else wonderful happened at that table, too. When no one was around, a mom sewed diapers for her little baby girl. The baby girl was named Kissa. Kissa’s mother loved her a heartful. She wanted her little girl’s soft bottom to be cradled in the finest diapers on the planet. So she made the diapers herself with special fabric and with extra love. She named the diapers “Kissaluvs” because each one wrapped her darling daughter in the most comfortable diaper anywhere. Kissa’s mother made pink and green and blue diapers. As her little girl grew, she made bigger diapers with strong plastic snaps that Kissa couldn’t undo. When they were wet or dirty, she tossed them into the washer. She used them again and again. Kissa loved her soft cloth diapers! There were no sharp pins to stick her. She never got a diaper rash. She wore them day and night.

Soon, all the moms who saw Kissa’s diapers wanted them for their children. And they said, “These are cute and soft and easy to use. We will tell all our friends!” And they did. Kissa’s mother asked a few moms who were very good at sewing to help her make the special diapers. They made diapers every day. And the small business grew and grew. One day a mommy named Tashi discovered Kissaluvs. She knew they were the best cloth diapers in the world. She knew that mommies liked to save money. She thought that children all over the world should have them. So Tashi worked on making that happen and Kissa’s mom handed over the reins to her.

Tashi had lots of big ideas. She would find ways to make lots more diapers. She could play cheerful music while the moms sewed. She could give them a big sunny place to work. After lunch, they could go home to be with their own children. And that is what she did. Soon mothers all over America and in Spain and Scotland and France and Finland, too, wanted these wonderful diapers. All of the helpers worked hard to make Kissaluvs. Tashi looked carefully at every single diaper to be sure it was perfect. After all, the children who would wear them were just as precious as her own little babies. Tashi sold Kissaluvs to stores around the world. Moms and dads bought them and washed them and snapped them snugly on their little ones. The babies were comfy and beautiful and handsome, too. Moms and dads saved lots of money. There were no trash bags filled with dirty diapers to pollute the environment. Everyone was happy!

Tashi was happy, too, but she still kept thinking of ways to make the diapers even better. One idea was to make diapers of organic cotton and hemp, which make Kissaluvs even more absorbent, longer lasting and better fitting. Tashi also started making organic knit wipes for gently washing babies. And a Lotion Potion diaper spray that’s fragrant like the great outdoors and makes changing babies more fun.

Every day, Tashi thinks about loving babies, helping families and respecting Mother Earth. So she’ll probably never stop having new ideas. Yea for her! Tashi lives in Houston, Texas and is the mother of two young boys. Kissaluvs are made two miles from her home. Growing up in India, Tashi learned that recycling saves money and is good for the earth. And that’s still the philosophy Kissaluvs runs on!

I only recently got to try some Kissaluvs brand products for the first time and I really liked them. The diaper potion smells amazing and the fabric for the contour diapers are so soft and perfect shape (much easier than prefolds). So when I saw this blog entry, I thought that is so cool to hear the STORY behind the company, makes me enjoy their products all the more!

Ammie said...

Ah, how sweet to name your daughter Kissa! I love the Kissaluvs Lotion Potion, too! That Two Hoots print is so cute.

Ashley said...

Exciting that Kissaluv's is now producing one-size! I have heard such great things about them, and need need need one. Seriously, the next diapers I buy will be Kissaluv's.

MaryAnne said...

We love Kissaluvs products. We use them exclusively for our cloth diapers and so far it has been wonderful. The diapers are well made, durable, and hold a lot of moisture. The diapers are so easy that it has made friends and family members of I believers of cloth diapers again. Good by pins - hello snaps!!
THANK YOU Kissaluvs.
