nelpe bottoms


fabric content

  • 70% viscose from bamboo, 28% organic cotton and 2% polyester, edged with wooly nylon thread


  • Nelpe flats, foldeds and fitteds are all made from double sided bamboo terry.  

    • Flats consist of a single layer, while foldeds are comprised of  two full body layers, along with two additional layers of the same fabric sewn into the center of the diaper, creating a four layer wet zone.

    • Fitteds combine three full body layers with two additional layers of the same fabric sewn into the center of the diaper, creating a five layer wet zone.  Gathering at the waist and legs, and snaps on either side offer increased convenience and mess containment. 

  • Like other natural fibers, bamboo terry is remarkably absorbent without being prone to stink.  What sets bamboo terry apart is its luxurious softness that can withstand countless messes and the washing that must follow.

  • Another feature of bamboo terry that makes it a perfect option for diapering is its incredible stretchiness.  If you are familiar with traditional cotton flat and prefold diapers, you will notice an improved fit with ours.  These diapers will hug baby’s waist and legs snugly, minimizing any risk of leakage.

  • Nelpe flats and foldeds are a soft, natural color accented with a variety of color combinations around the entire outer edge.  Fitteds follow suit, but include coordinated snaps as well.

  • These diapers all require a waterproof cover.

why nelpe flats?

  • Flats are the quintessential cloth diaper.  Likely the option your grandmother trusted.  Why do modern moms still reach for flats diapers?  Because they do a dirty job simply, with very little attention or care,

  • Because a flat diaper is simply a square of fabric, the possibilities are endless.

    • Folds we love include origami and skinny neat, but there are so many customizable choices…the diaper bag fold, the kite fold, a small Nelpe flat trifolded into a cover for an older baby…  Resourceful parents may even find themselves reaching for this square of fabric to complete household tasks other than diapering.

    • While a folded Nelpe flat is comparable to any day time cloth diaper option, the addition of a Nelpe booster or two means baby can stay comfortable and dry overnight as well. 

why nelpe foldeds?

  • Prefolds are an updated classic.  A flat diaper that has already been folded for you.  This allows the simplicity inherent to basic cloth diapering, but eliminates a step between the wash and baby’s bottom.

  • In its simplest fold, a Nelpe folded provides six layers of thirsty bamboo, making it an excellent option, day or night.

why nelpe fitteds?

  • Nelpe fitteds pair impressive absorbency with grab and go convenience, making them an excellent choice for outings, middle of the night changes, and those times when baby is in the care of a cloth diapering novice.
  • Appropriately named, our fitteds fit beautifully, regardless of whether your precious baby is long and lean, or the chubbiest you have ever seen.  Not only are they remarkably stretchy, the unique snap placement allows the waist and leg openings to be adjusted separately.
