Organic, Fluorocarbon free cotton

It’s taken 8 years of research to produce our chosen fabrics and I am very proud of the standards I have managed to achieve through my work with Halley Stevenson, based in Scotland. Here’s what the Managing Director says “We have had the pleasure of dealing with Marie Louise as a partner in developing the MLM organic canvas bag with a child friendly water and soil repellent finish. This project has been led by Marie’s foresight and passion for her ideal product and we are glad to have helped through that development process.”

As Halley Stevenson also supply premium brands such as Burberry and Barbour, MLM is ensuring only the very best quality is used for you and your delicate newborn.

Nickle free metal work

Nickel is considered harmful and allergenic for newborns which is why our metal work is all marine grade stainless steel.

Your stroller straps have a weight bearing load of  >200kg making them not only safe around your baby but durable.

British Tweed

Albert Moon supply our beautiful British tweed and have been manufacturing tweed for 175 years.

Their wool supplier adheres to strict animal welfare protocols. Certificates are available upon request.

“Founded in 1837 and with our roots in apparel, we are one of the last remaining vertical woollen mills in Great Britain, with a reputation for consistent quality and innovative design.”

Recycled Leather

The recycled leather goes through multiple non-polluting cleaning processes. First the discarded leather is collected from the manufacture of apparel, shoes, handbags, furniture, etc and is put through a series of scouring processes to achieve a consistently even texture. It is also cleaned to allow a uniform, natural colour for the finished product. After the recycled leather is applied to the fabric, it is washed again to soften. The end result is an environmentally safe and “clean” product which gives the feel, weight, and durability of leather, but does so without polluting the environment.

I am incredibly excited to share the first ever fluorocarbon free baby changing bag with you.

MLM provides bags that are:

Pre-packed; your bag is ready to grab and go when that life changing moment comes, giving you peace of mind. Each item has been specifically picked utilising my 8 years of experience as a midwife prioritising your health and welfare .

Durable; made in Britain with premium materials and built to last.

Stylish; you shouldn’t feel as though you have lost your sense of style now that you’re a mum and I have made sure of that through unique design twists.

Practical; developed by myself as a midwife I have ensured all of your particular needs are met with the right compartments. For example you have your own tweed mummies pouch with a secure zip and secrecy flap to hide it away if you wish.

Removable; its has a removable changing mat and liner so that you can rest your baby on the organic changing mat whilst out and about. The organic liner can be removed to wash at 30 degrees or used as a separate bag packed for a childminder.

Wipeable; as a midwife I appreciate the importance of hygiene so the bag and changing mat are fully wipeable. The exterior is made with wipeable organic cotton, reducing chemical usage and protecting cotton growers from exposure to harsh chemicals.
