What is Birdseye?

Birdseye fabric is a fabric with a special type of weave. By weaving in a small, repetitive pattern you create diamond shaped stitching which resembles the eye of a bird. This leads to its eye catching pattern which made it popular in fashion, mostly through men’s suits. What makes birdseye weave great is it creates a lightweight, soft and breathable fabric meaning when applied as a cloth nappy they absorb well and are quick to dry.

The fabric’s application as a cloth nappy is a popular go to cloth nappy system in North America so we decided bring the option across the pond with the BrightBots Birdseye Flat Nappies.

BrightBots Birdseye Flat Nappies

Presented in a generous 70x70cms sizing, BrightBots Birdseye Flat Nappies are 100% cotton. These flat nappies are trim fitting, economical and wonderfully easy to use. Being 100% cotton also means they are robust for constant washing, at high temperatures and tumbled dried.

Using a birdseye flat is very simple. The 70cms Square can be folded in the same folds as you would a traditional terry nappy but with less bulk. Or they can be pad-folded into a PUL wrap or inserted into a pocket nappy. They can be used from birth making the perfect fitting trim newborn cloth nappy.

By adding boosters (BrightBots 100% Bamboo Terry Boosters) into the folds these flats can be used throughout the day and adapted to last as a system until potty training.

The BrightBots Birdseye flats also make a great choice for cloth nappies on holiday. You will find that they take up little space in your luggage, are easy to hand wash and quick to dry.
