what does "sloomb" mean anyway?

first up, big congrats to keli.h - the winner of a bamboo fleece fitted in one of the new colors, when they come out (probably for early summer).

second, wool totes. i know you are all waiting for your wool! it is still in production, but will be here soon. please check back early next week for expected color arrivals. black and brown should arrive late next week, with the other colors arriving the following week. i am doing everything i can to get your totes out to you as quickly as possible. totes for this season are no longer available, but the store will be stocked after the tote orders have been pulled. shorts & front pocket karate pants(TM) will be available in very limited numbers.

now to the question...what does SLOOMB mean? i get asked this over and over and say the same thing every time:

"nothing, really. we were brainstorming one night & came up with the name & loved it."

but maybe this isn't enough. maybe sloomb really does mean something, right? why not.

so, tell us what "sloomb" means to you.

please leave a comment here with your twitter name and the best definition/description of "sloomb" will receive a 20% off coupon for your next order. this poll/contesty thing will close January 16th at 11:59 pm EST.

have fun!

remember, the photo contest closes on the 15th (today)! this time the prize is a pair of karate pants.

also, whatever you see in stock for the hemp fleece is all we will have until summer. hemp fitteds are all on sale (need to make room for the wool that is coming in)- get them while you can! if you're missing a color in the flats, Banana Peels Diapers, our newest retailer, has all of the hemp flat colors in stock now! Heather has a great store & free shipping over $50! many of you are in her area too - sbish daytrip anyone?

we're considering a google group or LJ for store information. apologies if the emails or newsletters have not been reaching you correctly. we're working on it!

Sloomb means to us comfort, style, and quality. I don't have to worry when Caedan is wearing sustainablebabyish products.

Sloomb is Green, Comfy, Kiddie Couture. When Delilah wears her SBish, she is cute and stylish enough for s mama photoshoot and yet, I don't care if she runs around and gets dirty. Because I know SBish wool can take it.

Sloomb means just how it sounds to us. * giggle* When I hear sloomb it means soft, gentle, cuddly and warm. I know my Boo feels sloombed when wearing her sustainablebabyish diapers.

I think sloomb means something that describes what kids are like - they love to get comfy; they're fun, active and goofy; and they're so darn cute! :)

I came up with two. (Can you tell I was bored this morning??? lol)

Sustainable & squishy
Lovable luxury
Organic &
Maybe magical
Bottom line -- beautiful on baby's booty

sloomb stands for: sustaining little ones organically, magically, & beautifully

To us, Sloomb means the most comfortable squishy soft goodness made to fit my baby like a glove. We adore our wool and Sbish are our absolute favorites to wear. They're perfect for going out, lounging around the house, freezing weather, warmer weather, you name it, sloomb's got it!

Sloomb means to us, a soft place to land when you've had a rough day. Sloomb's products are reliable, and consistent like any good friend should be. Sloomb is strong and can withstand anything life with a toddler can throw at it. It's simple, it's classic. But best of all, it's green.

Sloomb (v): any active, free motion accompanied by a feeling of natural tranquility. "As she sloombed all through the backyard, giggles burst forth like the bubbles she was chasing."

i didn't know about the contest so my answer is late, but i wanted to tell you what my husband and i seriously thought it meant (because of course we had this conversation). we totally thought the s and b stood for 'sustainable babyish', and that the middle word, loom, was in reference to the cloth making tool. heh heh, funny.

Tara said...

I know the contest is already over but I wanted to comment on what I think Sloomb means....

Simplistic beauty and flawless functionality.

I had this epiphany as I was washing my Sbish wool last night.

It's amazing how much the interlock repels the water as I was trying to soak it... like none other. My soakers dried almost immediately and feel so cuddly soft. I love Sbish!

Savannah said...

I don't think I got a coupon code, maybe it got deleted through spam? Too bad because I just bought two totes this week,oops lol! Love your diapers Erin!
