There are plenty of diaper bags that allow you to carry everything, but why should you? Kibou (pronounced KEY boo) is the Deliberately Minimal Diaper Bag. Designed to sit comfortably on your waist, it goes everywhere with you and your Little Ones… Effortlessly.
Kibou is the brainchild of Brooklyn mom Nell Shapiro. Born out of her frustration with unnecessarily large diaper bags, she daydreamed of being able to fit everything that she needed for her baby into a fanny pack (now that they are ooh – so back in style)!
She sat with the idea for two years and then upon becoming pregnant with her second baby, she discovered there was still nothing like this dream-come-true minimalist bag on the market. So, she set to work designing and creating one herself. Kibou launched on Kickstarter on September 16th, 2019, and just 4 weeks ago, Kibou sold over $ 30,000 Deliberately Minimal Diaper Bags. Proof that parents are actively seeking a simpler, lighter bag solution when they’re on the go with their kids.
Kibou isn’t just a fanny pack though. The entire design – each function and dimension specifically enable it to double as a diaper bag . Each pocket is made to fit exactly those items that parents need most report when they are out with their little ones. And every feature is intentionally built to simplify that experience – leaving parents’ hands and minds free to focus on what really matters.
Kibou core features include:
- A built-in waterproof pocket, which holds 20+ wet wipes for up to 2 weeks
- A detachable changing pad that unfolds from the back flap
- Little Ones not in diapers anymore? Kibou is designed to grow with your family! Swap out your changing pad for your first aid Bou-Boo Bag ™ .
- The Bou-Boo Bag ™ contains gauze pads, antiseptic ointment, purell, alcohol pads, and sting relief pads .
- A front pocket for Parents’ most needed items: Phone, Credit Cards & Cash
- A main pocket with space for your Little Ones’ most needed items including diapers, a bottle, sunscreen or even a small toy.
Kibou comes in 5 vegan leather colors : Charcoal, Olive, Blush, Brown and Black. Vegan leather, as well as our nylon lining, is extremely durable and easily cleanable, but it’s also beautifully chic. It was essential to us that this bag is not just functional but also look good. So, we worked on prototype after prototype until we achieved the perfect balance between fashion and function , because parents deserve to both feel and look good.
