My name is Angela and I live on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland with my husband and our four crazy kids. We moved over to Australia in 2016 from the UK and are happy to now call it our home. We have used cloth nappies with all our children and I often thought about starting a cloth nappy business, but the timing was never right.
When baby number four came along in 2018 I decided it was time to take the plunge. I had left all my sewing equipment in the UK so had to start from scratch. I had a great time choosing my new sewing machine, overlocker, etc. and then set to it. I love fabric, which is why my customers have such a great choice of prints – there should be something for everyone.
I pride myself on my attention to detail and love to add quirky little touches to the nappies that I make. I also like to think outside of the box and try new things.
When I am not at the cutting table or sewing machine you will find me with the kids at the beach (my favourite place) or sat at the piano.
"I am often asked where the name LibbyLou Rose came from – it is simply a combination of the middle names of my 3 girls – Annabelle Elizabeth (Libby), Emma Louise (Lou) and Isla Rose (Rose)."
BEING ENVIRNOMENTALLY FRIENDLY
I believe that looking after our planet is very important, and so I take that into careful consideration when purchasing my fabrics. Did you know that the fabric industry is the #2 polluter of fresh water in the world? It takes approximately 200 litres of water to print just 5 yards of conventional fabric! A large portion of the fabric that I purchase is printed by a company who uses just a thimble size amount of water to print that 5 yards. I also use environmentally friendly packaging. My branded tissue paper used to wrap up you order is acid free and FSC Certified, and the ink used to print my logo onto the tissue and logo stickers is printed with soy-based ink, making them easier to recycle. I also use 100% compostable postage packets where possible – they can be composted at home or commercially, and in the compost it will completely disappear within 6 months!
