I have a confession… I love a market. I love everything about them, the people, the atmosphere, the ability to stumble across a unique gift for that special someone. In fact, I love a market so much that following the birth of my first niece in 2013 I started handmaking tutus and selling them as a hobby.
Now, while tutus are the must have accessory for the fans of Emma Wiggle and Angelina Ballerina the reality is that many customers were requesting I expand my product range to include associated items such as shoes and hair accessories. At approximately the same time several of my friends gave birth and had decided to use modern cloth nappies instead of disposables. Curious about their decision I started researching the benefits and was horrified by what I found. The landfill, the expense, the list goes on. It was during this moment I made the commitment that when I had children I would use cloth.
Since then I have been on a mission, an eco mission. Together with my sister we officially founded Minnie & MAE in 2016 with the specific purpose of sourcing the highest quality eco reusable products and making them available for my loyal market customers at an affordable price. That is prices we consider fair and that don’t break the bank.
Fast forward to 2017 and I finally realised the opportunity to trial many cloth nappies following the birth of my son, however I quickly became frustrated that they either didn’t perform to my expectations or the ones that did, in my opinion were unattractive or overpriced. This frustration led us to develop a range a quality cloth nappies and associated items which we continue to introduce for the eco (and budget) conscious.
We hope you love our products as much as we do.
