At Fancypants we have spent a lot of time designing and refining our nappies to create, what we believe, to be the best cloth nappies in the South African market. We have tested and re-tested our colourful cloth nappies in all sorts of conditions and on many different babies and toddlers to ensure that they can fit all sorts of shapes and sizes.

It all began when, as two first time mothers, we quickly became aware of the fact that many of the things we had used in the past (such as chemicals in household cleaning products, body lotions, non-organic foods, etc.) had harmful components in them that were not suitable for our precious little ones. And disposable nappies were no exception. So began our journey of trying to find the best products for our babies, including finding a suitable real nappy. After much searching and trialing and not being able to find a re-usable cloth nappy that was environmentally friendly; yet affordable, highly absorbent; yet not too bulky, safe for baby’s skin; yet easy enough for dads to use, really cute and fun to wear; yet easy to wash………we decided to make our own. Thus, Fancypants was born!
