Product Description


Your own custom made diaper

WindelManufaktur makes an extraordinary custom design from your favourite fabric, a diaper that only exists once! Each custom diaper combines elaborate craft with a big piece of yourself. How can diaper changing be more beautiful than this, when you and your baby are connected by something so special? 

There are a few things to keep in mind for your custom diaper. Please read the following instructions carefully.

The most important things in a nutshell - this is how you place your order:

  1. Fill in the order form.
  2. Please check your order carefully before you send it and follow our instructions listed here.
  3. Pay for your order.
  4. You will receive an order confirmation including your order number by e-mail.
  5. Cut the fabric to the right size and follow the instructions on this page.
  6. Send your fabric to our studio or bring it in personally. Please include a note with your order number and name.

    Our address is:
    Stephanie Oppitz GmbH
    Großenhainer Str. 32
    01097 Dresden

  7. We will match the fabric to your order in our studio and sew your custom diaper after receipt of payment.
  8. After about 2-3 weeks, you will have your very own individual DropflapDiaper in your hands.

We have collected the most important questions about ordering a custom DropflapDiaper for you in the text below. Please read them carefully before you place your order.


Tips and frequently asked questions about your unique order

Which fabric is suitable?

Only woven fabrics, i.e. fabrics that cannot be stretched, are suitable for DropflapDiapers. The better the quality of the fabric, the more durable your diaper will be.

  • We recommend poplin and other high-quality cotton fabrics.
  • Baby corduroy is also possible - but the diaper will be a little firmer overall due to the heavier quality of the fabric.
  • With baby wrap fabrics you should know that the diaper often looks bigger, even if the same pattern is used. The fabric does not "fold in" at the cuffs as much as thinner woven fabrics.

Polyester fabrics, sweat, interlock and fleece cannot be used. Musselin can only be used if an appropriate non-woven material is ironed on.

You are also welcome to choose one of our custom fabrics in the shop. You can see from the product descriptions whether the fabric is suitable for the diaper. It can then be cut to your desired size.

Can I also send in a jersey fabric?

In the Help Centre we explain why you can't send in fabric for a unique JerseyDiaper. However, you can still have a custom JerseyDiaper made. There is a separate order process, as the options are slightly different. You can choose one of our great jersey fabrics in the custom fabrics section! Please note that the custom JerseyDiapers are made from the selected fabric on the inside and outside. A combination with another fabric is not possible.

To which size should the fabric be cut?

We need a piece of fabric large enough for your custom diaper. It would be a pity if we couldn't tailor the diaper because the fabric wasn't big enough.

The fabric size requirements depend on the size you want as well as the pattern of the fabric.

  • nondirectional: The pattern has no top or bottom and looks the same on the front or back
  • directional: The pattern would be "upside down" in the back and therefore needs to be divided at the crotch. Only then is it correctly displayed in the front as well as the back.
  • two different fabrics: The diaper has a different pattern in the front than in the back. Two pieces of fabric are necessary. 

The following graphic clearly shows you what to look for when ordering or cutting your fabric for a custom diaper.
custom fabric cutting measurments 

Can the piece of fabric be larger then necessary?

You are welcome to cut the fabric generously. Excess fabric will be returned with your custom made product. This means that you will get back anything that exceeds the measurements given above in a rectangular shape. (As an example: If you want to make a diaper in size 1 in undirected fabric, we need a piece of fabric measuring 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 diaper.)

Does the fabric need to be pre-washed?

Depending on the type of fabric, the finished diaper may be different even though the pattern is the same. In order to avoid shrinking or stretching of the fabric at a later stage, it is advisable to send it to us pre-washed and ironed.

I would like to have a custom DropflapDiaper, but I don't have the right fabric. Can I still order one?

Yes, you can. We have a wide range of high-quality unique fabrics in our online shop from which you can choose your dream-come-true pattern. You can see from the product descriptions whether the fabric is suitable for the diaper. You can be sure that the size of the cut piece is right.

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

If you would like to combine two unique fabrics from the shop, you are welcome to do so, as long as they are suited for the diaper. Please note that we only offer the fabric pieces for one complete diaper each. If you buy two pieces of fabric, you also buy the fabrics for two diapers. You are welcome to combine both fabrics. Please indicate in your order which fabric you would like to have on the front and which on the back.

How do I design my DropflapDiaper?

To make your chosen fabric stand out, you can select the following components of the DropflapDiaper in the order process.

  • inner fabric: material (organic cotton sherpa, cotton flannel, microfleece, wool) and colour
  • cuffs: material (cotton, wool) and colour
  • snaps: colour

Here you can get a first impression of available colours of our flannel fabrics and cuffs. In our Help Centre you will find a detailed description of the materials and colours for inner fabrics and cuffs.

Please note that the technical representation of the colours is not 100% identical to the real colours. Deviations are always possible.

Snap colours overview Windelmanufaktur

If you are not sure, you can leave the colour selection to us. It is often easier to combine the colours if the fabric, snap and cuff colours are lying next to each other.

In the field "Comments/Requests" you can leave special notes, for example which colours you would like to exclude.

Please note that the wool fabrics offered in our shop differ in quality and feel.

Please also note the corresponding surcharges in the order form.

Can I have my diaper embroidered?

With our embroidery machine, we can embroider for example your child's name on the diaper. You can enter a maximum of 8 characters as standard. We will choose a colour for you that contrasts well with the fabric, is easy to read and matches the colour of the fabric. If you have any special requests (for example, longer text or multiple lines), please contact us.

Help! I'm not sure what my combination will look like in the end and whether I'll like it!

We can fully relate to that! We are happy to offer you the option to have us take a picture of your design and email it to you so you can see how the colours will match. Simply check the "Design preview" box at the top of the process. Before we make your diaper, you will receive the picture by email for "approval".

How can I change my order?

We can only accept requests for changes free of charge within a period of one working day after your order has been placed. As soon as our production process has started, change requests will only be accepted against a surcharge 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, even the smallest change request means a great deal of processing and administrative work for us.

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

Please do not pin it to your fabric. This can cause damaging holes. If you do attach a note, please use paper clips.

How do I proceed with collective orders?

For collective orders, i.e. when several people want to order a diaper from the same larger fabric/baby wrap, we kindly ask you to send the fabric already cut and to label the individual pieces of fabric with names and order numbers.

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

Immediately available items that you order together with your custom diaper will only be sent together with it after its completion. Please order these items separately (with additional shipping) if you would like to receive them immediately.

I would like to order a custom diaper in size 3 (15-25 kg), how do I purchase the matching inner diapers?

For size 3 there are matching inner nappies made of PUL, TENCEL®️ or merino wool. You can order these in our online shop.

What happens after I have ordered my custom diaper here in the shop?

Once your order has been received and payment has been made, your diaper will be custom made according to the specifications on the order form.

When will my diaper be ready?

The delivery time is 2-3 weeks in total.

What else do I need to know?

Regarding the side information "right" and "left", we always assume the view of the diaper wearer, i.e. "right or left as seen from the diaper wearer".

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


Possible tripping stones and how to avoid them

Tripping stone 1: Your unique piece cannot be realised according to your wishes.

Please select in the drop-down menu what should happen if the unique piece cannot be realised according to your wishes (see examples 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 questions and problems may arise:

  • The design of your fabric is not aligned correctly. The diaper can be sewn but the design is not ideally placed on the diaper.
  • Your fabric has a flaw that would show on the diaper.
  • You have not indicated which fabric is to be sewn on the front and which on the back, in case you have ordered a custom product made of two different fabrics.
  • Your wishes, which you have noted in the "Comments/Requests" field, cannot be implemented (e.g. your wish for motif placement or colour choice).
  • Your choice in the selection fields differs from your wishes in the "Comments/Requests" field.

Tripping stone 2: Unfortunately, your DropflapDiaper cannot be realised at all.

In case of the following questions and problems that make it impossible to realise your order, 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 very carefully beforehand.

  • Your fabric does not correspond to the required size.
  • The fabric does not meet our specifications (e.g. if your fabric is stretchy or made of woolwalk).
  • The edges of the fabric would have to be unravelled so that the fabric size fits (e.g. when using a baby wrap fabric).

How to avoid tripping stones:

  • Check your order carefully before you send it. Any wishes that are not covered by the selection fields should be clearly formulated in the comments field.
  • Check your fabric carefully for size, texture and pattern display before sending it to us. Do this after you have pre-washed it, as it may shrink during washing.


Did you know that we also make custom panty liners as well as menstrual pads?

4xUnikat=4xsuperZufriedenReview by Karolin
Das lange warten lohnt sich, die Stoffe werden so liebevoll und sorgsam zu Windeln verarbeitet - da kann man nur staunen. Auch der Kundenservice ist super, so wurden bisher all meine Wünsche erfüllt. Habt lieben Dank für die tolle Arbeit. (Posted on 11/15/2019)
Wie immerReview by Christina
Es war nicht die erste und wird nicht die letzte Unikatwindel für mich bleiben. Nach 2 Jahren testen mit meinem älteren Kind bin ich nun endlich mit meinen weiteren Kindern bei der Windelmanufaktur hängen geblieben.

Ich verlasse mich bei der Wahl der Innen- ,Bündchen-, und Snapfarbe stets auf das Gespür der Näherin und war bisher restlos zufrieden.

Vielen Dank (Posted on 11/10/2019)
Unikate 1,5Review by Nadine
Alle Unikate wurden bisher genau nach Wunsch gefertigt. Gr. 1,5 passt bei uns einfach perfekt. Die Kommunikation mit Luisa vom Kundenservice war immer sehr freundlich und hilfreich. Ich liebe alle meine Unikate sehr :) herzlichen Dank (Posted on 10/29/2019)
Schönes Design, tolle Qualität Review by Tina
Unsere Unikatwindel ist zum genannten Zeitpunkt eingetroffen, die Qualität und das Design sind zu unserer vollen Zufriedenheit. (Posted on 10/28/2019)
Immer wieder schön und dazu einzigartigReview by Ally
Ich als Wiederholungstäter kann nur bestätigen, dass die Unikate süchtig machen. Fast hätte ich gleich 4 Windeln bestellt, konnte mich dann aber doch noch zurückhalten.
Bei dem tollen Ergebnis ist er aber mehr als verständlich, dass man nicht genug kriegen kann. Selbst der creme-gelbe Stoff, den ich nicht sooo schön fand, sieht als Windel gar nicht übel aus.
Dieses Mal habe ich die Farben zum größten Teil selbst ausgesucht und bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Resultat.
Mal sehen, wann mich das Windelfieber wieder packt... (Posted on 10/19/2019)
Unikat aus Fidella Paisley TragetuchstoffReview by meethy
Aus dem Fidella Tragetuchstoff habe ich uns ein Unikat in der Größe 1,5 nähen lassen. Da ich mich nicht für eine Seite entscheiden konnte, habe ich den Stoff teilen lassen und die hellere für vorn und die dunklere für hinten gewünscht. Innen ist Sherpa. Mein Fazit: Es ist die allerschönste unter unseren Unikaten. Verarbeitung super und kuschelweich, außen und innen. Die Wartezeit war ganz schwer auszuhalten, aber es hat sich gelohnt. Ich hoffe, meine Tochter lässt sich noch ein bisschen Zeit. (Posted on 10/14/2019)
TierfreundeReview by Marie-Christin
Die Windel ist wie immer sehr gut verarbeitet und die Größe 1,5 die wir gewählt haben, passt unserem Kind sehr gut. (Posted on 10/11/2019)
Ich liebe sieReview by Alexandra
Leider mit Suchtpotential verbundenen. Ich habe mir schon ein Paar Unikate in Größe 1,5 nähen lassen. Sowohl von eigenem Stoff als auch von Stoff aus der Manufaktur.
Vorteil an eigenem Stoff, den wasche ich vor und die AW läuft meiner Meinung nach so gut wie nicht ein. (Posted on 10/7/2019)
Schöner LuxusReview by Juliane
Habe ein paar wunderschöne Unikate erhalten! Beim nächsten Mal werde ich die Farben für Bündchen, Snaps und Innenfutter jedoch selbst aussuchen, da sie mir bei der einen Windel etwas zu grell geraten sind. Bei einer Windel habe ich vergessen die Option „Aus einem Stoff aber gerichtetes Motiv“ (oder so ähnlich) auszuwähle- nun sind die Wellen auf der einen Seite falsch herum. Schade- aber mein Fehler. (Posted on 9/27/2019)
Ein TraumReview by Marie
Ich habe mir ein Unikat anfertigen lassen und bin von dem Ergebnis begeistert. Achtung Suchtgefahr!! (Posted on 9/19/2019)
Wunderschönes Unikat Review by Sarah
Das Unikat ist ein Traum geworden! Ganz tolle Arbeit (Posted on 9/19/2019)
Super schönes GeschenkReview by Linda
Habe ein wunderschönes Unikat zur Geburt verschenkt. Danke für die tolle Windel! (Posted on 9/19/2019)
Tolle Qualität Review by Toni
Ich liebe unsere Unikat Windeln. Die haben eine super Qualität. Das Team geht auf jeden Wunsch ein, egal ob es nur ein kleines Extra hinzukommen soll oder etwas aufwendigeres. Das Team versucht es jedem Kunden gerecht zu machen. Unsere Unikat Windeln passen super und sehen immer toll aus, auch wenn das Team sich die Bündchen, Snaps oder Innenfutter aussucht. Ich bin sehr zufrieden (Posted on 9/12/2019)
So schön!Review by Tania
Ich bin hin und weg. 5 Unikatwindeln in Größe 1,5 durften bei mir einziehen und nicht nur sind sie wunderschön, sondern passen wie angegossen.
Ich habe 2 Stoffe der WM genutzt und 3 Stoffe hingesendet. Es hat einwandfrei funktioniert und es wurde auf meine Wünsche eingegangen.
Bei einem Stoff war ich mir nicht sicher, mit welchen Bündchen und Snaps ich ihn kombinierten sollte und habe das den WM-Mitarbeiter*innen überlassen und wurde nicht enttäuscht.
Lieferzeit betrug 4 Wochen ab Stoffeingang. (Posted on 9/5/2019)
SuchtgefahrReview by Madeleine
Ich liebe meine Unikate. Es ist so toll und spannend, wenn Post kommt und man sich mit den Farben zum Beispiel, überraschen lassen hat. Perfekte Verarbeitung, individuell und tolle Passform.
Besser geht's nicht! (Posted on 9/3/2019)
UnikatliebeReview by RumplHanni
Das ist eines der Toppunkte bei der Windelmanufaktur, wenn einem die aktuellen Aussenwindlen nicht zusagen kann man einfach seinen eigenen Stoff hinschicken.
Das hebt sich natürlich sehr von anderen Herstellern ab und kann süchtig machen... ich spreche aus eigener Erfahrung.
Prinzipiell sind aber Unikatwindeln schon teurer und das kann sich natürlich je nach Stoff noch staffeln.
Die Herstellungzeit liegt aktuell auch bei 5/6 Woche, also nichts für ungeduldige. Aber man sieht auch auf Facebook, welche Massen an Unikate bestellt werden. (Posted on 9/3/2019)
Wir lieben WolleReview by Tina
Wir leben die Produkte mit Wolle es ist soviel entspannter damit zu wickeln, super kuschelig und einfacher in der Handhabung als viele glauben. (Posted on 9/3/2019)
Tolle Einzelstücke Review by Stephanie
Nachdem die 1er Windeln langsam knapp werden, habe ich 2 Unikate in 1,5 bestellt.
Das Ergebnis ist super, Snap- und Bündchenfarbe wurde von den Mitarbeitern perfekt gewählt, die Stoffe sind sehr gut verarbeitet und die angekündigte Lieferzeit wurde eingehalten. (Posted on 9/3/2019)
Liebste LieblingswindelnReview by Sarina
Wir besitzen fast ausschließlich Unikate der Windelmanufaktur, welche wir nun fürs 2 Kind im 4 Jahr nutzen. Da sie dzrch die dazugehörige Innenwindel, die Verkleinerungssnaps und diverser Saugeinlagen individuell anpassbar sind , ist es auch kein Problem das erst der Kleine Buddah und nun die zarte Elfe die selben Windeln tragen. (Posted on 9/3/2019)
Tolle Windel genau nach WunschReview by Nadine
Habe schon mehrere Unikate bestellt, sowohl aus eigenen Stoffen als auch aus Stoffen aus dem Shop. Bei allen wurden meine Sonderwünsche gebau umgesetzt. Netter Kundenkontakt. Werden sicher nicht die letzten sein. Jedes Unikat eine große Liebe. (Posted on 9/3/2019)
