Aussie Cloth Nappy Shops: Krap Katchers

Krap Katchers is based in Queensland, Australia, and is owned by Nicole.

Let’s discover a bit more about this store with the very catchy name:

Tell us the story behind the name of your shop:

The original owner started the name off as bit of a joke but it stuck so Krap Katchers was born.  When I took over the business I decided to keep the name for a number or reasons and yep this is despite knowing some people don’t like it, but you can’t win every battle.  I think the name reflects my personality quite well as its catchy, cute, cringe worthy, memorable and has a sense of humour with the tongue firmly planted in cheek!

Tell us about your products:

We sell Stuff ‘em Silly pocket nappies.  They have been designed to keep heavy wetting babies dry overnight, but we don’t discriminate all types of wetters are welcome and day time use is also encouraged.  Originally designed just for one baby but once word got out that one mum managed to keep the Niagara Falls contained, everyone wanted in on the action!  Our range has also expanded to include trim pocket nappies specifically for day time use called Brazilian Bikinis.

Let’s have a look at some of your Stuff ‘Em Silly Night Time Nappies:

Tell us about your background and what inspires you to have your own business?

I am a married with two gorgeous daughters, Madeleine is 2.5 and Genevieve is 1, and they like to keep us on our toes!  We have used and loved modern cloth nappies on birth girls since birth, and I love to remind those that doubted our efforts that we are still going strong.  Seriously who can resist the thrill of fluffy mail arrival?!  I am  currently trying to finish my degree in Food Technology that I started before having the girls.  However since being a Stay At Home Mum I rediscovered my love of sewing, so when the opportunity arose to combine sewing and my obsession for MCN I jumped at the chance.  I love my new venture and I want this to be my long time career!

What extra information and support for using cloth nappies do you provide?

I am very happy to help provide comeback to those ignorant few who continue to condescend your use/plans to use MCN.  Also don’t be afraid to contact me for any questions you might have about any of our products or MCN in general.  If I don’t have an answer that satisfies you I’m happy to point you in the direction of many great resources.  If you live in South East Queensland, I am willing to demonstrate our products or to show off my own stash to give you in real life examples of MCN.
