Prediction: Peacocks is the next stolen print we see making the rounds in the black market. A suspicious new DS user was trying to buy some AIOs in FSOT... Get ready for side-snapping AIOs to emerge from these "companies."

Re: Grovia LOVERS come in!

The AIOs don't fit my chubby girl well, but I love the snap covers with their biosoakers for when we travel! We just did a week away with no washer and they worked wonderfully- I just washed the covers in the sink with hand soap and dried over the shower curtain rod.

I doubt they will do the side snapping AIO's. Steal the print? Yeah.

Those pocket diapers are just too easy to manufacture. The AIO are more expensive to sew and to procure materials for.

Good point; there's a lot to the AIO and to the Hybrid. I've seen some sketch-brand AI2s lately and fitteds that look exactly like the old DryBees bamboo with rainbow serging, though, so I have to wonder if they're branching out.

There actually already is a knock off of the grovia aio. I bought one used on a Facebook swap to compare them. They were very similar.

wow really?!

honestly I don't doubt it. I think diapers are pretty easy to replicate if your a good seamstress. My thing is quality of the materials that are being used are definitely not of the same caliber.

Yep! Same design, definitely not the same quality!! I saw it in a co-op here in the fall of last year, but I removed myself from the DS Co-ops because of it... what a shame that they support(ed?) the blantant violators of copyrights, you'd think they would have an interest in this industry and not want to see it watered down into junk....

ANYWAY, peacocks is adorable, and it will not surprise me if it is being replicated and produced just as soon as its' GroVia run is up, the cheaters seem to be able to convince people that it's okay b/c GroVia isn't making it anymore (or that was the attempt when owls/nature/mod flowers were stolen), or mybe people convince themselves of that, but I'm pretty confident that GroVia would actually use all of their material, and certainly not sell it to some off-brand company... and no, turning it into a minky doesnt make it different

seeing Robots or Woodlands stolen wouldn't surprise me at all either.... Woodlands is my all time favorite print. I also have an obsession with Seaside Stripes, though I only own it in Wonder Wraps (three of them ) and a wet bag, and never did own it in the hybrid!

Re: Grovia LOVERS come in!

The number one reason we use Grovia is because of the quality. There's no way China cheapies can match that.
