Kekoa Premium | Tiaki Sea

$26.00 USD
Cantidad:

Kekoa’s consciously designed trim nappy with bilayer technology is eco-luxury at its finest. Pairing simple innovation with elegance they are not only practical and functional, but beautifully luxurious.

Our first collection, Tiaki, loosely translates ‘to take care of’ in te reo Māori and underpins our intention.

Toitū te marae o Tāne-mahuta, Toutū te marae o Tangaroa, Toitū te tangata” – if the land is well, and the sea is well, the people will thrive.

We acknowledge the conservation of culture and language is equally as important as our physical world - Papatūānuku.

EASIEST POCKET TO STUFF

Bilayer technology enables even the largest of hands to seamlessly stuff pockets with no additional grip, whilst also protecting the laminate lining.

SUSTAINABILITY

PUL, made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, helps reduce manufacturing energy by 75% and water consumption by 90% (when compared to virgin polyester fabric). Each nappy saves approximately six plastic bottles from our oceans and landfill.

VERSATILITY

Functional as both a pocket nappy and snap-in (all-in-two or hybrid), with a uniquely designed anchor system to help keep inserts in place.

Dual back elastic for superior containment – functioning like a back internal gusset. Additional barrier making clean up easier by protecting hands during insert removal.

COMFORT

CoolMax® performance moisture wicking technology sits directly against your baby’s delicate skin, providing superior dryness, and is the easiest internal fabric to clean.

Plush leg elastics for superior softness.

Original four-way flexible wings for easier fit and greater freedom to move.

ABSORPTION

High-density bamboo-cotton all-natural fibre larger insert and high density bamboo terry smaller insert provide superior absorption without bulk at all stages of nappy wearing.

SAFETY

All of this wrapped in OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 protection so you know what touches your baby goes beyond many of the national and international requirements for chemical safety (our fabrics are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified).

One size fits most (OSFM)

Includes 1 premium nappy shell and 1 insert pair (one larger size bamboo cotton and one smaller bamboo terry bifold/trifold)

Suitable from approximately 3-18kg

Designed in Wanaka, New Zealand.

Kekoa acknowledges the people of Ngāi Tahu as the traditional custodians of the land we call home here in Central Otago, New Zealand.

Brand new items

Due to the nature of the fabric in our flexible wings, we recommend hand washing your nappy shells with like colours (i.e. reds together, darks together) until the water runs clear. This helps prevent colour run which can occur occasionally due to excess dye in the manufacturing process.

 

Washing Guidelines 

Kekoa recommends following the Clean Cloth Nappies guidelines for washing. This helps prevent ammonia and mould build up in your nappies by warm and hot washing with appropriate detergent.

Below are the basics to get you started.

There is no need to soak your nappies, just remove wet inserts and dry pail (container with lots of holes to allow air flow i.e a basket)

If you’re washing your nappies with other hook and loop/velcro nappies we recommend adding Kekoa nappies to a laundry bag. This helps prevent the lightweight internal fabric and stretch tabs from early damage.

 

Rinsing once nappy removed

Breastmilk/formula only
  1. Once nappy is removed, there is no need to wash poos off the nappy – just remove inserts from their shell and place all in a well vented “dirty” dry pail
Once started Solids
  1. Flick as much solid poo into the toilet as possible, this is often hard when starting on solids and poos are still soft
  2. Remove inserts from their shell and place into your well vented “dirty” dry pail. Removing these before rinsing (if possible) helps keep things cleaner by not having water sodden inserts sitting in your basket.
  3. Rinse your shell using toilet water when flushing, a sprayer attached to your toilet or your laundry tap to remove any extra (it doesn’t have to be perfect). Avoid harsh scrubbing brushes, silicone is fine. We have found old school rubbing the fabric together under running water works great!
  4. Place shell in your “dirty” dry pail

Washing Routine

Hand washing one or two
  1. Follow the dry pail method mentioned previously (rinsing once nappy removed)
  2. Hand wash your one or two nappies each day in whitener free detergent and the hottest water you can handle (rinse poop off first if needed, then hand wash)
  3. Rinse clean and squeeze out excess water. Drape to let air out
  4. Add hand washed nappies to your regular wash daily or every 2-3 days as you do a load
  5. Hang shells to dry; inserts can be hung or put in the dryer

Note: This method can seem more time consuming but it's not forever! It usually won't take long before you're loving cloth nappies and that's where the dedicated short and long washes below become easier and more of a "routine".

Daily short wash (often called prewash)
  1. Once a day wash all your dirty nappies on a short cycle (30-60min) at 40-60 degrees C (104-140F) using ½ cap or scoop of approved laundry liquid or powder (whitener/bleach free)
  2. Remove nappies and place damp in a second well vented “prewashed” dry pail
  3. Add each day’s prewash to the same dry pail until you have enough for a full wash (2-4 days usually)

Note: This prewash is not the prewash function on your machine. You want a separate wash cycle that completely removes all water before doing a full wash. Confusing I know!

Full wash (every 2-4 Days)

When you have enough nappies to completely fill your washing machine give your nappies a long wash (equates to roughly 3/4 full when wet). This is usually 3 or 4 days worth of prewashed nappies.

On the last main day wash you'll do two loads, a prewash on the previous days nappies followed by a main wash with all the other prewashed nappies.

If you don’t have enough, but you're at 3 or 4 days worth of prewashed nappies, you can bulk up your load with small items like baby clothes, wash cloth, spittle cloths or hand towels. Just be sure they’re not dark/new items as the colour can run and stain your natural bamboo fabrics.

  1. Use 1 cap or scoop of approved liquid or powder (whitener/bleach free)
  2. Use a long cycle (2.5hrs+) at 40-60 degrees C (104-140F)
  3. When complete, hang all items out to dry or you may choose to put your inserts in the drier. We do not recommend adding your shells to the drier as they have a PUL coating inside which doesn’t enjoy heat.

Easy to use and gorgeous 😍

We are new to cloth nappies and these nappies make it super easy ! Not only are the designs stunning but also the nappies are super functional. My favorite feature is the stretchy wings, they make it super easy to fit and get a good seal. They also have 4 snaps on each side making it really strong, most nappies only have 3. Good product !! Definitely my fav in our nappy collection and will buy more

Most reliable

Bubs just started daycare. As we are the only one using cloth, I was super worried about the ease of use for the educators hoping we can continue our cloth nappy journey. After a week of trial, happy to report that it was easy as for them! Made me feel relieved that I don’t need to switch to velcros or disposables and just keep on relying on my kekoa cloth nappies. :) I have been subconsciously just pulling the premium kekoas to bring to daycare, to ensure the best comfort for bubs. So so glad I’d be getting more use for my cloth nappies. Not willing to let go yet ;)

So beautiful!

I’m someone who chooses quality over quantity. And I new to cloth diapering. So I been buying and looking at all sorts of brands. But Kekoa by far is the top favorite. And definitely attention grabber! They look so beautiful, so luxurious, I love how they have a stretch on the waist band. I also love the story behind them. And love how their print represents NZ. I really just want EVERY SINGLE PRINT THEY OFFER!
