This time last year, some of you I am sure will remember we hosted a competition offering Close Parents and Pop-in fans far and wide, the chance to design a print and have it made into a nappy. The theme set was Halloween. We had hundreds of amazing entries from around the globe and you voted in the hundreds hundreds and decided on a vibrant design by Karina Garrido, one of our Mexican Pop-in Mums. This design aptly named by our community as ‘Fiesta’ brings together old and new traditions, celebrated closely together by families all over Mexico in the Autumn. We have taken Karina’s inspo and vision, and added that ‘Pop-in’ look feel and ended up with this gorgeous and vibrant carnival feel print.
Hear first-hand from Karina on why she entered, why she loves Pop-In, the inspiration behind Fiesta, as well as her experience of being part of this process.
'Hello my name is Karina Garrido I live in Mexico City with with my husband Diego and my two little ones Diego and Marina.'
'We are deeply involved in the cloth community here and taking care of our planet, that's how I was introduced to Pop-in. I quickly fell in love with the designs and functionality.'
When the contest to design a print was announced last year I was excited to be able to share a little of my own culture with the rest of the cloth world through a nappy.
I wanted a nappy design full of colour, with a backdrop of cultural tradition and catrinas that celebrated the important holiday we call “Día de los Muertos” or Day of the dead here in Mexico whilst also acknowledging Halloween.
Fiesta will be available to pre-order with our new Autumn Winter prints from Monday 11.10.21 from 9 AM and we hope to be able to ship before the end of the month so save the date as stock is limited!
