We’ve received many questions today about what exactly what we changed about the hook & loop.
Our new hook & loop is made out of 100% polyester (the vast majority of hook & loop available in the United States is made of nylon). It is flexible, softer, and stickier after washing. I absolutely love it!
The photo to the right is a picture of the old laundry tabs and the new laundry tabs. These stay soft and flexible over time while retaining their stickiness.
(sidenote: in this photo you can also see the start/stop of the top stitching just above the laundry tab to accommodate for elastic accessibility. Many families want to be able to use their diapers for another child. This change makes it easy for those families to refresh their diapers for another baby if needed. )
In the photo below, the twilight diaper is a new bumGenius 4.0 and the ribbit diaper is a bumGenius 3.0. Both diapers are unwashed.
I am still at the office, but tomorrow I’ll add a photo to add of a diaper with the new hook and loop that has been used and washed for six months so you can see how it has held up over time.
