Where Are Rumparooz Currently Made?

I love my Rumparooz! However, I recently did some research and was shocked to find out where exactly they are made! I had always assumed because the designer lived here in the USA, that they were probably made here too, right? Wrong!

Currently, Rumparooz are designed by the company CEO here in the states, produced in a factory located in China, and then warehoused in several locations for international distribution.

Where Did Rumparooz Get Its Start?

 
Chad and Julie Ekstrom lived in the little town of Golden, Colorado, with their two daughters. They had only recently welcomed their second daughter, Autumn, to the family when they discovered she had developed quite a sensitivity to disposable diapers. Little Autumn also made big messes that disposable diapers did not have the dominion to combat.

Chad and Julie went on the hunt for solutions.

But, for all their research and product sampling, they got nowhere. So, the diligent parents decided to invent an entirely new diaper that met all their needs, from scratch.

In their small-town kitchen, Chad and Julie combined their knowledge, skills, and tools to mastermind a one-of-a-kind cloth diaper. The result was a diaper with features that did not compromise quality, functionality, health, or safety the way disposable diapers often do.

And that was how the first Rumparooz was born.

After patenting her design a year later, in 2007, Julie caught public attention. In no time, she got Rumparooz requests from parents and retailers eager to sample or sell her product. And, just like that, the Rumparooz graduated from being a kitchen experiment into being a full-blown business.

Eventually, and to keep up with demand, Julie partnered with an employee-owned company in China to manufacture her products. Her affections for healthy kids and high-quality living compelled her to visit the company in person to affirm its ethics and practices in person.

According to Julie, the company was not of the typical sweatshop-variety. In fact, after observing the workers in their natural environment, Julie was left with the impression that the company’s team operated more like a close-knit family with lots of love and happiness to share. Additionally, not only had the company maintained eco-friendly standards, but it also manufactured organic garments and had even built preschools!

Together with her manufacturing partner, Julie was able to obtain an alphabet soup of certifications (IMO GTS, FWF, SGS, and OEKO-TEX), and both she and her manufacturer strictly adhered to all standards required by the CPSIA.

Roughly thirteen years and three kids later, Julie’s Rumparooz design is still thriving. Now the CEO of Kangacare, the official name of her Rumparooz business, Julie continues to convey her innovative designs to her manufacturer in China, who then turns her prototypes into a reality. The manufacturer will distribute the resulting products to various warehouses. In addition to being available online, Rumparooz products are shipped to and sold in retail stores across Europe, Asia, and even Oceania!

From Colorado, where they’re nothing more than prototypes, to the warehouse in China, to your home, Rumparooz products experience quite the journey. And that’s just the beginning. Here’s a list of some of the most current Rumparooz products, along with their pros, cons, and reviews.
