Pics of new versus 9m old Alva

Just wanted to show some pics. The 9month Alva was used 3 times a week and still works great. The color is slightly less bright and more pilly in the inside compared to the new Alva.

Thanks for sharing. I was just looking at my alvas yesterday and thinking about how well they have held up. They still look new to me We've had them about 6 months and use them 3-4 times a week. They have held up so much better than my kawaiis and bg's.

Re: Pics of new versus 9m old Alva

That's awesome! I just sold all our Alvas (they were used 8-10 months) and as I was photographing them I was thinking how great they look. I see people bag on "Cheap China diapers" and say they'll fall apart in a few months but that just isn't true. I think they're better quality than FuzziBunz (which are also made in China) and even if they did only last through one child, if you paid $4 per diaper I think they more than pay for themselves. I prefer BG but I'll never hate on Alvas. They're great diapers and a lot of people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a new stash can cloth diaper because of them.

Re: Pics of new versus 9m old Alva

I have to admit I was originally skeptical of them.
Besides Alva, I have BG, Flips, Imse vimse, sunbaby, kawaii, softbums, Gen-y and even wool that I barely use. I now reach for Alvas most often, and they are not inferior in quality. I do appreciate the other brands for various other reasons, but Alvas are turning out to be my workhorse.
