Innovation That Matters

For new moms, by a new mompreneur

Fashion & Beauty

Spotted just in time for Mother’s Day, MayaLena’s Momono is a modern take on the outmoded housecoat. After seeing her shirts continuously covered in baby drool and smeared banana, Marie Ottley decided to design a practical yet stylish solution to an unavoidable problem. Her creation, the Momono, is a kimono-like shirt, made from colourful, exotic fabrics that camouflage spills and stains. Flattering and loose-fitting, the wrap style opens easily in the front for breast-feeding, and has roomy pockets for tissues, phones and pacifiers. Great example of turning a personal problem or need into a new product, and evolving from stay-at-home mom to full-fledged mompreneur.
