Who is EcoNaps?
Meet Kobi, the inspiration behind EcoNaps Cloth Nappies. Kobi is our chief cloth nappy tester and helper, as well as our part time nappy model! Right now, he is obsessed with the vege garden, and as all boys do, loves getting grubby as often as he can - dirt, sand, food, puddles, paint, pens - you name it!
Then theres me, Kyla - Cloth Nappy designer, creator, blogger, photographer and full time mum. When I’m not dreaming about cloth nappies, you’ll find me drinking tea, and indulging in all the deliciousness the local Byron Bay farmers markets have to offer.

I just want to say how impressed I am with the econaps modern cloth nappies. I have been using them for two months and they have been excellent for my daughter. The flexibility in sizing really helps compared to disposables where we have struggled as she was too big for 'newborn' and too small for 'infant' which caused some leakage. The biggest challenge is working out which style to put her in each day.
Very fast and efficient service. Great website and selection of cloth nappy colours to choose from.
I am totally in love with the Econaps designs! Such beautiful colours, and the plush cloth nappies feel so snuggly. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks! :)
Lovely friendly service, they were happy to answer my million questions and helped me get set up with cloth nappy options that were just right for me.
How it all began..
Before falling pregnant with Kobi, life was alot slower paced than it is now. I spent much of my spare time designing and creating beautiful things, and was passionate about living the most sustainable life possible.
I had never thought too much about alternatives to disposable nappies until Kobi arrived. I was astonished at how quickly our rubbish bin filled, and I was even more horrified when I began reading about the negative impact disposable nappies have on our environment - not to mention how much of our grocery bill was going on nappies each week!
I began looking around for alternative nappy options, and discovered Modern Cloth Nappies. It was love at first sight! Only thing was, I could only afford a few as they were quite expensive. Although cheaper ones were available, they seemed just that - cheap. I really struggled to find affordable cloth nappies that looked good on, and were of a decent quality.
I guess thats when I had a bit of a lightbulb moment. I put my passion for designing and creating to good use, and before I knew it, EcoNaps Cloth Nappies were born.
I began selling our nappies at the markets in Byron Bay. We had such a great response from our customers, we soon had a loyal local following. It was alot of fun sharing my new found passion for cloth nappies with others, but 5am starts, and a young baby on my front all day? Looking back, I think I must have been crazy!
We now sell our Modern Cloth Nappies and accessories exclusively through our online boutique. As our passion for all things cloth nappies grows, so does our product range, with some exciting new additions coming soon that we know you’ll just love!
