Cloth nappies made in the UK

Postby kath77 » Thu Jul 22, 2010 8:45 am

Hi,

Does anyone know which / if any UK companies' nappies are actually made in the UK?

I'm writing a cloth nappy article for my local NCT mag and want to talk about the environment side of things, but need a few examples!

Thanks,
Kath x

Tots bots are made in Scotland, Weenotions are made in Yorkshire (I think, definitely UK though), Lushious Little Somethings & Puddlekins are made in the UK. I'm sure there are lots more too. Someone else will probably know more than me :)

There are absolutely LOADS of us UK WAHMs making nappies.....just look through the WAHM section and you'll find almost all of the nappy makers in there are UK based.

Tots Bots, Weenotions, Puddlekins, Luscious Little Somethings, Clwt Twt, Hollow Oak are among the most well known but there are a lot of other WAHMs in the UK that make nappies too.

It's worth bearing in mind that not all the materials used in the production of UK made nappies are sourced from within the UK. Obviously it's nice to support UK businesses but if your main consideration in this article is for the environment then it's important to take this into account. How much environmental difference is there between importing the material and importing the finished product?
