Tips and frequently asked questions about your unique order

Which fabric is suitable?

Onlywoven fabrics, i.e.fabrics that cannot be stretched, are suitable for Abhalte diapers. The better the quality of the fabric, the more durable your diaper will be.

  • We recommendpoplinand other high qualitycotton woven fabrics.
  • Baby corduroyis also possible - however, the diaper will be a bit firmer overall due to the heavier fabric quality.
  • Withsling fabrics, you should know that the diaper will often look larger, even if the same pattern is used. The cloth fabric does not "fold" in at the cuffs as much as thinner woven fabrics.
  • Wool fabrics should not be heavier than 250g/m² and should not be tumbled.

Please note that the AbhalteWindel is more bulky with thicker fabrics due to three superimposed diaper parts (side wings, belly strap adapter, front part).

Polyester fabrics, jersey, sweat, interlock, wool whale and fleece cannot be used. Muslin can only be used if a fleece has been ironed on.

You are also welcome to choose one of ourUnique fabrics in the storediapers. From the product texts you can see whether the fabric is suitable for the AbhalteWindel. This can then be cut to your desired size.

How big should the fabric cut be?

For your unique AbhalteWindel we need a sufficiently large fabric cut. It would be a pity if we could not sew the AbhalteWindel because the fabric is not enough.

As withoutside diaper uniques, the fabric size requirements are based on the size you want as well as the pattern.

  • Undirected: The pattern has no top or bottom and looks the same as a diaper front and back
  • directional: The pattern would be "upside down" in the back, so it needs to be divided at the crotch to make it go around the right way in the front as well as the back.
  • two fabrics: the diaper has a different pattern in the front than in the back. Two pieces of fabric are necessary. The belly strap adapter is always made from the fabric for the front.

The following graphic shows you clearly what you should pay attention to when ordering or cutting your fabric for a unique outer diaper.

Can the fabric cut be larger?

You are also welcome to cut the fabric generously. Excess fabric will be sent back to you with your unique piece. That means: What exceeds the measurements we mentioned above, you get back. (As an example: If you want to make a unique piece in size 1 in undirected fabric, we need a piece of fabric of 60*60 cm (see list above). If you send us a piece of 80*60 cm, we will send you back a strip of 20*60 cm with your unique piece).

Does the fabric need to be pre-washed?

Depending on the type of fabric, the finished keep-away diapers may vary despite the same pattern. To avoid later shrinking or stretching of the unique fabric, it is advisable to send it to us pre-washed and ironed.

I would like to have a one-of-a-kind diaper, but I don't have the right fabric. Can I still order one?

Yes, you can. We have in our online store aRange of high quality unique fabricsfrom which you can choose your dream fabric. From the product texts you can see whether the fabric is suitable for the AbhalteWindel. You can be sure that the size of the cut is right.

I would like to combine two unique fabrics from the store. Is that possible?

If you want to combinetwo unique fabrics from the store, you are welcome to do so, as long as this is possible for the AbhalteWindel. Please note that we only offer the fabric pieces for one complete AbhalteWindel each. When you buy two pieces of fabric, you also buy the fabrics for two unique pieces. You can combine both fabrics. Please indicate in your order which fabric you want on the front and which on the back.

Please note: The belly strap adapter is always made from the fabric for the front.

How do I design my AbhalteWindel unique?

You can select all other components of the AbhalteWindel individually in the order process so that your desired fabric is shown off to its best advantage.

  • Inner fabric: Material(cotton flannel,organic cotton picnic,wool,microfleece) and color.
  • Cuff: Material(cotton,wool) and color
  • Snaps: color

In the picture gallery you can get a first impression of the available color palette of our snaps, inner fabrics and cuffs.

Please note that the technical representation of the colors does not match 100% with the real colors. Deviations are always possible.

If you are not sure, feel free to focus on the material and leave the color selection to us. Often the combination of colors works better when fabric, snap and cuff colors are next to each other.

In the "Notes/Wishes" field you can leave us special notes, for example which colors are excluded for you.

Please note: The offered wool fabrics differ in quality and feel.

Please also note the corresponding surcharges in the order form.

What fabric is the belly strap adapter made of?

We will make the adapter from the fabric you send us or from the fabric you choose in the store. At the moment we cannot make an adapter from another extra fabric. If you have selected two fabrics, we will always make the adapter from the front fabric.

Can I also order the AbhalteWindel without the belly belt adapter?

No, we only offer the hold-away diaper in combination with the adaper.

Would you like a dream embroidery to go with your dream fabric?

With our embroidery machine we can embroider e.g. your child's name on the detention diaper. By default, you can specify amaximum of 8 characters. We will choose a color for you that provides enough contrast to the fabric, is easy to read and matches the color of the fabric. If you have special requests (for example, longer text or multiple lines), please contact us.

Help! I am unsure what my combination will look like in the end and if I will like it!

We have great understanding for that! We are happy to offer you the option to have us photograph your design and email you a picture so you can see how the colors will match. To do this, you can simply click the "Design Preview" box at the top of the process. Before we sew your unique piece, you will receive the picture by email for "approval".

How can I change my unique order?

Change requests after sending your order can only beaccepted free of charge within a period ofone working day. Once the unique piece has been started in our production process, change requests will only be accepted at an additional cost of 5,00€ and are no longer guaranteed. Please understand that we try very hard to produce the perfect unique piece for you and proceed with the utmost care. Therefore, every change request, no matter how small, means a lot of processing and administrative work for us.

How do I attach the note with my info to the fabric?

Please do not stick any needles on your fabric. This can cause unsightly holes. If you attach a note, please use paper clips for it.

How do I proceed with collective orders?

For group orders, that is, when several people want to order a unique piece of fabric/sling, we ask that the fabric be sent inalready cut and that the individual pieces of fabric be labeled withname and order number.

I have ordered other products from you. Will you send them to me earlier when they are available?

Immediately available items that you order along with your unique piece will not be shippedwith the unique piece untilit is completed. Please order these items separately (with shipping) if you would like to receive them immediately.

Do you also make keep-away diapers in size 1.5 (6-15 kg) and size 3 (15-25 kg)?

We are happy to make the size 1.5 for you. You can simply select it in the order form. Unfortunately, we can't offer size 3 as a one-of-a-kind diaper at the moment.

What happens after I order my unique piece here in the store?

After we receive your order, payment and the fabric arrives at our studio, your unique piece will be made. Your AbhalteWindel will be made according to the specifications on the order form.

When will my unique piece be ready?

The total delivery time is 2-3 weeks.

What else do I need to know?

Regarding the side information "right" and "left", we always start from the diaper wearer's point of view, i.e. "seen from the diaper wearer's right or left".

If the selected options differ from the information in the "Notes/Wishes" field and it is not clear what has priority, we will follow the selected options in case of doubt.

Possible stumbling blocks and how to avoid them

Stumbling block 1: Your unique piece cannot be realized according to your wishes.

Please select in the dropdown menu what should happen if the unique piece cannot be realizedaccording to your wishes(examples see below):

  • Leave it to us to decide how to proceed.


  • Choose to be contacted and decide for yourself for a handling fee of 5,00€.

Possible arising questions and problems can be:

  • The motif of your fabric is not aligned correctly. The hold-off diaper can be sewn, but the design is not ideal on the finished hold-off diaper.
  • Your fabric has a fabric flaw that would show on the finished keepaway diaper.
  • You did not specify which fabric should be sewn in the front and which in the back, in case you ordered a unique piece made of two different fabrics.
  • Your wishes, which you have noted in the field "Notes/Wishes", are not realizable (e.g. your wish for the motif placement or color choice).
  • Your choice in the selection fields differs from your wishes in the "Notes/Wishes" field.

Stumbling block 2: Unfortunately, your AbhalteWindel unicum cannot be realized at all.

In case of the following questions and problems, which make therealization of your order impossible, we will contact you without being asked and a handling fee of 5,00€ will be charged. Please prevent this by reading and following our instructions for ordering your unique piece.

  • Your fabric does not correspond to the required size.
  • The materiality of your fabric does not correspond to our specifications (e.g. if your fabric is stretchy or made of woolen whale).
  • The edges of the fabric would have to be unraveled to fit the fabric size (e.g. for a sling fabric).

This way you avoid stumbling blocks on the way to your dream-unique:

  • Check your order very carefully before you send it. All wishes that are not covered by the selection fields, you should clearly formulate in the comment field.
  • Check your fabric very carefully for size, texture, and motif distributionbefore sending it to us. Do this after you have pre-washed it, as it may shrink during washing.
