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?

Grandiose Arbeit Review by Mandy S.
Ich habe schon drei Unikate herstellen lassen und war immer wieder aufs neue fasziniert. Wenn man sich mal unsicher ist bezüglich der Farbkombinationen - die Mädels der WMW wissen was am besten passt und wie die Windel zum absoluten Hingucker wird. Echt grandios! (Posted on 4/24/2016)
Einzigartige StückeReview by M.W.
Auch wir haben uns schon einige wunderschöne Unikate fertigen lassen. Der Fantasie sind hier keine Grenzen gesetzt. Wir haben Fische, Drachen, Füchse, Tragetuchunikate... Jede Windel ein einzigartiges Werk. Man merkt, dass sie mit viel Liebe gemacht sind. Und ich habe meist auch Stephanie entscheiden lassen welche Snaps und Bündchen zu meinen Stoffen passen und ich war jedesmal begeistert. Hat immer perfekt zusammen gepasst. Meist geht die Unikatanfertigung auch schneller als erwartet. Vielen Dank! (Posted on 4/21/2016)
Vorsicht Suchtgefahr!Review by Hasenase
Jeder der mit WMW wickelt wird sich wahrscheinlich min. 1 mal ein Unikat machenlassen und dan noch ein und noch eins... :D
Einfach toll, die Auswahlmöglichkeiten verschiedener Innenstoffe, Snaps und Bündchen, die Kommunikation mit dem Unternehmen die einfach, schnell, suuuuper freundlich und unkompliziert ist und dann die Geschwindigkeit in der es hergestellt wird!
Einziger Haken, es macht süchtig ;) (Posted on 4/20/2016)
Superschön Review by Anna
Mein erstes Unikat ist superschön geworden und die Farbe der Snaps und Bündchen wurden von Stephanie perfekt ausgewählt! (Posted on 4/20/2016)
Individuell und wunderbar Review by Maria
Eine unikatanfertigung darf in der Sammlung nicht fehlen. Das besondere daran ist das man selber entscheiden kann wie man die Außenwindel gerne hätte.
Als ich mir mein Unikat bestellt habe und nachträglich etwas verändern wollte stand mir Stephanie mit ihrem Team mit Rat und Tat zur Seite um das perfekte Unikat anfertigen zu lassen. Ich wurde bisher noch nie enttäuscht und war immer wieder aufs neue verliebt! (Posted on 4/20/2016)
UnikatReview by Janine
Ich habe gesamt 9 Unikat und der 10. ist noch bei Windelmanufaktor und ich liebe alle Unikate, die Windelmanufaktor- Team zaubern immer schöne Unikat- Windeln heraus und hat jedes Mal geschafft meine Erwartungen zu übertreffen. <3 (Posted on 4/19/2016)
UnikatReview by Annette
Wir haben heute unsere 4 Unikat- Windeln erhalten... schöner geht es nicht! Unglaublich, was Stephanie für ein Händchen hat! Die Farben sind wunderschön kombiniert. Die Verarbeitung ist wunderbar. Alles ist hier professionell. So sieht die Windel der Zukunkt aus. Meine ganze Familie ist ganz aus dem Häuschen vor Freude. Optisch einmalig und funktional ( es gibt wohl nichts, was man hier noch verbessern könnte- es wurde einfach an alles gedacht!). Und schon nach wenigen Stunden war mir klar, was ich meinen Babies mit Wegwerfwindeln "angetan" hatte. Fast immer schwitzten sie im Windelbereich und das "Klima" darin war wirklich unangenehm. Bei Stoffwindeln ist (obwohl es heute warm und schwül ist) nichts davon zu spüren, keine Hitze staut sich, die Bewegung ist nicht beeinträchtigt. Danke, liebe Stephanie, dass du dein Talent so nutzt und einsetzt.
Die verwendeten Materialien sind hochwertig und keinesfalls billig,ich bin sicher, dass die Windeln lange halten. Wenn man mal überlegt, wie teuer gutes Material ist und wie lange man braucht um so eine Windel zu nähen, ist der Preis doch ziemlich klein. Wie gesagt, ein ganz klares Zukunftsprodukt.
Tausend Dank an dich, liebe Stephanie, kein Wunder, dass OSCHA dich haben möchte ;) (Posted on 7/24/2015)
KunstReview by Daniela
Wahre Kunst, aus Stoff ein Unikat herzustellen. Liebe Stephanie, ich bin so froh, dass deine Kunstwerke bei uns sind. (Posted on 4/16/2015)
Ich bin verliebtReview by Marlen Scheller
Vor ca. zwei Monaten kann unsrere erste Sonderanfertigung an... Und was soll ich sagen? Ich bin verliebt. Sie ist aus TT-Stoff und du wunderbar weich und schön.
Eben ein echtes Unikat :-).
Vielen Dank Stephanie, dass sie so toll geworden ist. (Posted on 11/25/2014)
Wunderwerke mit SuchtpotentialReview by Kirstin Hanak
Es gibt bereits viele verschiedene Windeldesigns, aber als "Windelfreak" hat man auch besondere Wünsche. Die Unikatwindeln ermöglichen nahezu jede Verrücktheit. Sie sind zwar auch etwas teurer, als die verfügbaren Modelle, aber dafür sind sie noch viel schöner und Stephanie gestaltet sie mit einem unglaublich guten Gespür für die Stoffe und ihre Schönheit. Wunderwerke mit Suchtpotential ;) (Posted on 11/24/2014)
Gut verarbeitetReview by Christiane Luik
Ich habe für meine Tochter eine Unikatwindel aus dem Tragetuch "Gold Rainbow" bestellt - mein absolutes Traumtuch. Die passende Windel dazu ist ebenfalls ein Traum. Gewohnt gut verarbeitet, passt perfekt und fühlt sich einfach nur toll an! (Posted on 11/22/2014)
Wunderschöne, perfekte ArbeitReview by Sonja
Unsere Unikatwindel ist wunderschön, perfekte Arbeit. Schön, dass Windeln so viel Spaß machen können. (Posted on 11/20/2014)
Funktionieren am BestenReview by Kati H.
Liebe Stephanie, ich habe lange überlegt, ob ich das Geld in deine Windeln investiere - es scheint erstmal ziemlich viel zu sein... Die Blümerant durfte als erste hier einziehen.
Inzwischen sind einige Unikate dazu gekommen und wir wickeln nur noch mit deinen zauberhaften Kunstwerken. Denn sie funktionieren bei uns am Besten. (Posted on 11/19/2014)
alle Erwartungen übertroffenReview by Nadine M.
Ich habe schon einige Unikatanfertigungen machen lassen und bin immer wieder begeistert von Stephanies Arbeit.
Die Windeln haben bislang immer alle Erwartungen übertroffen.
Die Qualität ist unglaublich gut.
Es sind richtige kleine Kunstwerke, die Stephanie da zaubert.
Die Windeln sind jeden Cent wert. (Posted on 11/18/2014)
wunderbarReview by Jana A
Welch wunderbare Möglichkeit neben den wirklich auch immer wunderschönen "Standartdesigns" der Außenwindeln sich sein ganz eigenes, persönliches Exemplar schneidern zu lassen. Schon die Stoffauswahl ist ein erwartungsfroher, besonderer Prozess, für den ich mir viel Zeit gelassen habe, hin und her überlegt, entschieden und verworfen habe. Vor dem inneren Auge begleiteten mich die Bilder möglicher Modelle bis ich mich endlich entscheiden konnte.
Dann bleibt noch voll Spannung zu warten, was Stephanie wunderbares aus den Vorgaben zaubert, insbesondere, wenn ihr für die Farben von Bündchen, Innenfutter und Snaps kreativer Spielraum gelassen wurde.
In meinem Fall entstanden fünf ganz wunderbar verarbeitete Unikatwindeln, die mir ab sofort das Wickeln verschönern!
Einen ganz herzlichen Dank dafür!! (Posted on 11/18/2014)
Jeden Cent wertReview by Lisa
Da es zum Zeitpunkt meiner ersten Bestellung kein Design gab, welches mir voll und ganz zugesagt hätte, bin ich bei einer Unikatanfertigung gelandet. Mit ganz viel Freude, habe ich mir Stoff rausgesucht und später folgten noch weitere Unikatswünsche. Jedes ist auf seine Art ganz besonders und wie meine vorherige Kritikerin schreibt, so sehe auch es ich so, sie sind jeden Cent Wert. Denn meine Unikate, sind wundervoll, die kein anderer hat und manchmal, da erzählen sie einem sogar wunderbare Geschichten. (Posted on 11/18/2014)
Unglaublich schönReview by Katharina
Wir haben unser erstes Unikat aus dem Tragetuch Didymos Aurora erhalten und sämtliche Erwartungen wurden übertroffen... Unglaublich schön und dazu so weich und anschmiegsam. Stephanie hat sich selbst übertroffen und jeden Cent war es wert! Danke (Posted on 11/17/2014)
