Blast from the Past

Some of you might remember that we were rather famous for a product called Oh So Soft many years ago. This 100% microfiber polyester pile fabric is also called minkee, minky or cuddle depending on which fabric company makes it.

 

Well, our Oh So Soft was so much better, softer, denser, but the cost of the fabric kept going higher and higher, so we did not want to compromise our quality and softness to compete on price. Sadly, we stopped selling Oh So Soft more than 5 years ago.

 

Well, we have been experimenting with new technology and have worked with a company in Australia (a customer who used to buy the original Oh So Soft) to try to develop the incredible hand feel and softness of the original, but at a more affordable price point. Almost 2 years of developments, experiments, promise, failure, hope, more failure, but we are finally pretty satisfied with the results.

 

Here are some photos of some of the nappies/diapers that Vivi makes out of the Oh So Soft. Really amazing designs!

 

Who knows, we re-introduce it here in the US market……
