The webshop Almommy was founded in 2014 by Aranzazu Pomares Sanches.,originally selling a broad variety and assortment of products related to breast feeding. In 2016 the webshop was taken over by myself, Ilse Koppelman. I decided to focus on selling babywearing coats, jackets, vests and carriers.
The focus on selling babywearing coats, including my own brand Minomana® resulted in a rapid expansion of the company. Because of a strong increasing demand for our very specific softshell coat I decided to expand the production capacity in 2017. The expansion enabled me to realize my dream to start selling overseas.
Our Minomana® babywearing coat was originally designed in The Netherlands by Aranzazu. The design of this softshell jacket is subject to continuous improvement. I challenge all my customers to contribute to an even better product. Design changes can be implemented fairly easy in our workshop in Barcelona. We can even customize and personalize the babywearing coat on specific request.
I’m a mother of 4 children, Youri (2008), Thiara (2009), Laura (2013) and Vera (2016). I breastfeeded and carried all my sweeties. With Youri and Thiara I actually started learing babywearing and got more confident. The convenience I now have in carrying Laura and Vera and the special bond it brings convinced me to spread the word. In 2014 I certified as a babywearing consultant at the Trageschule Dresden.
