Poppy Pants
diapers all started in 2005 at a kitchen table with a a hand-me-down sewing machine. After a few tries and a few willing friends to help designer, Kirsten Alderson, try out the new diapers, she came out with the first Poppy Pants All-in-one Diaper. She wanted to design an ultra trim cloth diaper that was just as fashionable as it was functional. The desire to create this product came from her own daughter who was unable to use disposable diapers and she wanted a easy to use, beautiful, and light weight alternative to the old fashioned diapers and more modern but extremely bulky diapers that were available. She is presently selling Poppy Pants in Boutiques in Austin and Houston Texas.
