I sew fitted diapers, AI2 diapers, merino wool covers, interchangeable mama pads, and some accessories.

3. What inspired you to start your own home-based business? Do you have any employess?

I started TISMO due to the lack of organic cloth diapers that are out there. My son Atticus was born with eczema and constantly got rashes from the many cloth diapers that I tried with him.
