Meet: Carolina Cloth

I used to be so intimidated by the idea of cloth diapering. Thankfully, I had a wonderful network of mommies who helped me take the plunge. If you, too, are interested in cloth diapering, but are not quite sure if it is for you, I have some wonderful news, dear South Carolinians!
Carolina Cloth is a local company that specializes in all things pertaining to non-disposable diapers. It was started by my good friend, Leslie Twining, who above all wants to show people “… how easy cloth diapering can be and how much money it can save families.” Mostly, when buying cloth diapers, the only option to do so is online. Even the bigger stores, such as Target, that carry some cloth diaper styles do not have them in stores for you to look at and/or purchase. Thankfully, the Midlands have finally been blessed with their very own cloth diaper retailer.
Carolina Cloth carries the top selling diaper brands, such as BumGenius and Fuzzibunz, as well as some smaller brands, including Happy Heinys and Thirsties- both of the latter brands are made here in the USA. They are not limited to selling diapers, though- if you visit them at you will be able to find anything from products for pregnant and nursing mothers, such as breast pads, to diapering equipment, such as diaper sprayers.
Local customers can request to meet Leslie for pick-up and are thereby able to avoid paying shipping costs. But that is not the only way locals can save money when buying diapers from Carolina Cloth- check out their sales page for special low prices. Currently, there are sales deals available on BumGenius and Fuzzibunz diapers.
The best thing about Carolina Cloth is the awesome service available to its customers. Leslie offers in-home diaper consultations, where you can look at your diapering options in person rather than on your computer screen. She also organizes diaper parties, at which the host can receive special discounts and sales! (I am thinking about hosting one in the near future; sounds so much fun!)
Most importantly, Leslie wants to “take the fear out of cloth”. She offers educational classes in which she teaches the basics of cloth diapering to interested parents. The next class will be held Saturday, September 24, at 9:30 am. It will take place at the Expecting Well Maternity Spa & Wellness Center, 514 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201. The class is free, so stop by!
