Although we are not parents ourselves, we found ourselves at the age where a new pregnancy was being announced every week amongst our friends, siblings, cousins and colleagues!
After being around parents, we heard several complaints:
- Baby clothing is always so boring – I don’t want plain white!
- Using poppers on baby grows is such a faff, but the zip versions are quite hard to find and expensive when I do find them
- I get through clothing so quickly, and this can’t be good for the environment
Taking away these three pains, we created Zipster. The patterns are fun, the zip makes changing convenient, and bamboo is the obvious eco friendly choice that has the added benefit of being buttery soft!
If a customer would like to send back their Zipster after their baby has outgrown it, we pay for the postage and donate them to children’s charities. Zipsters are designed to be worn for a long time, and therefore disposing clothes after a baby has worn it for just 3 or 6 months doesn’t sit right with us!
