Washcot - the circular washable nappy

Extend the useful life of reusable nappies

The useful life of reusable nappies is determined by the sustainability of the coated (water-repellent) outer layer. Our aim with this project is to test which types of textiles available on the market are eligible to serve as the basis for this layer. After that, we want to coat them in order to extend their lifespan considerably. During the research, we also take into account the recycling of this layer: can the coating be removed and can the fibres be reused as a raw material?
