Ms. Shen and Ms. Tian

Ms. Shen and Ms. Tian lead our two sewing teams. Ms. Shen made the very first Glow Bug cloth diaper and with her team made thousands and thousands more since. Ms. Shen just became a grandmother for the second time when her daughter had her second baby a few months ago! She loves spending time with her grandchildren. Ms. Tian joined our team in 2013 to help with our growing manufacturing needs. 

Ms. Bao

Ms. Bao's nickname is Super Woman because she is simply amazing! She is extremely dedicated and hard working and under her hands and supervision, most of the snap work is done. Ms. Bao is a wife and mother and loves being with her family. 

Mr. Shi

Mr. Shi heads our cutting team. He gets rolls and rolls of fabrics and makes sure that all the necessary pieces are cut exactly right so that the sewing teams can assemble them all together to make each and every diaper. Because of the size and quantity of the fabrics, his work requires a lot of space, special equipment and skills, and Mr. Shi is a real pro at what he does!  

Arbel Ratzin

Arbel does a lot of our graphics and design work, and he is the designer of our logo. He is also Neta's husband so he gets "paid" for his work in baked goods and delicious meals (Sarah is a talented baker and Neta loves cooking so it works well!).
