NEW! Thirsties Duo Wraps Save Money!
Thirsties, a Colorado owned and operated, 100% USA made cloth diaper company recently released the new Duo line of diaper covers. What’s so great about these new wraps, you ask? Lots!
The new Duo Wraps offer the same foolproof fit and ease of use as the Thirsties original diaper covers with one new feature that is sure to please: they’re adjustable. “They make sizing up a whole lot easier,” Nicole Hanson, mother of one says. “I only need two sizes to fit my daughter from birth to potty training and that really saves me a lot of money, without compromising on the fit.”
In these times of belt-tightening and fat-trimming it’s nice to hear that there is now an offshoot that saves even more money on a product that already saves new parents thousands of dollars every year. The new Duo line from Thirsties is definitely something worth checking into.
About the Inventor...
Erin Kimmett, owner and designer of Thirsties, became infatuated with the sewing machine and all its wonders beginning at a very young age. Her grandmother, Pearl McBride, was a truly gifted craftswoman and eventually become a local celebrity in her artful expressions. Pearl's father passed away when she was just a baby leaving she and her mother to fend for themselves in a poverty-stricken tenement of New York City. Pearl was taught to sew professionally alongside learning her ABCs and tying her shoes. Though Pearl was only a child, she and her mother worked tirelessly together as sewers for a large clothing manufacturing company to try and make ends meet. Despite the fact that she was forced to sew in lieu of a formal education in order to keep bread on the table for herself, Pearl was enamored with the needle and thread and all the limitless possibilities of creativity it provided. As an adult, she continued to sew for both hobby and profession. Never was she seen without a needle and thread in her hand. In due time, she graciously passed along her gift and her unquenchable thirst for creativity and sewing to her granddaughter, Erin Kimmett.
Pearl has since passed, but her love for sewing is still expressed in Thirsties cloth diapers today. As a new cloth diapering mom herself, Erin Kimmett, couldn’t find a diaper cover that quite suited the needs of her baby, and therefore set out to create her own design of waterproof wraps. The first covers were patterned, cut, and sewn on her dining room table and went through several tweaks over the course of 18 months before they were finally released! It was a painstaking process, but all the hard work and innovation paid off and resulted in the best selling diaper cover on the market today.
