Each Truly Genius Tuesday, we explore the lives of those who have inspired the unique cloth diaper prints in our Genius Series. We’ve talked about mathematics, discovered the geniuses of music and movies, and explored the world of plants and animals. We’ve met Maggie, traveled to the rainforest with Chico, and this week – in honor of Flag Day – we are talking about our patriotic genius, Mary Pickersgill! Meet our Patriotic Genius: Mary Pickersgill Mary Pickersgill was an American business woman and well-known seamstress. She created the Great Garrison Flag that flew during the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Aside from her
When we started the Genius Series, we were excited about all the brilliant worlds to explore. We began with Albert and Lovelace which come from the academic world, and then we explored genius in the wild with Maathai and Irwin! Genius in the Wild: Irwin Steve Irwin was an Australian wildlife expert, conservationist and television personality who was famous for his series, “The Crocodile Hunter.” In addition to his role on television, he made many contributions to wildlife education and conservation. He ran an organization that that not only rescued and protected crocodiles, but also supported a number of animal-related charities.
The Genius Series started with Albert and Lovelace, but I think it’s fair to say Jules and Carroll put it on the map. Our limited edition Genius Series prints have been inspired by well-known geniuses. From adventurers to movie stars, each person has used their talents to leave an inspirational mark on the world. Not only did these genius storytellers make their mark in the literary world, but the cloth diaper world too. When our designer was working on these two prints we knew they were cute, but we did not realize the true love they would inspire in the
We’re honoring Jane Austen, one of our favorite literary genius, in this week’s Truly Genius Tuesday! Jane Austen was bold… She wasn’t afraid to break the rules! Though her writing didn’t “take off” and gain popularity until after her death, she kept going, following her dream. Her perseverance and strength to push through the stereotypes of her time have made a difference for years to come. “To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love.” “My heart is and always will be yours.” “We are all fools in love.” “Till this moment, I never knew myself.” Jane Austen inspired
Okay, okay! We realize Love is technically NOT part of the Genius Series… It does not say “I’m a genius” in the design like our other Genius Series diapers, but it does say “love my cloth diapers,” and what’s not genius about LOVE! When we started Truly Genius Tuesday, we said sometimes we’ll get to share a little more behind the scenes info about our cloth diaper prints, so that is what we’re going to share today. Mobber became Love We released Love on September 16, 2015, but the story of Love, its design and its name started a couple years
