The Story Bambooty


Once upon a time there was an Aussie mum called Amelia who’s daughter Hannah suffered with terrible eczema. Amelia discovered that the eczema was made worse by disposable nappies and she brought a range of reusable nappies which improved Hannah’s eczema. 

However after a few months of dealing with leaks, bad stitching and ugly bulky designs Amelia began making Hannah’s nappies at home herself. Amelia also needed to design a nappy which her husband Nav could manage to change. Soon Amelia was making nappies for family, friends, friends of friends and friends of friends of friends and in 2008 Bambooty was born!
