How the Bibble was born

Hi, my name is Linda, I’d like to introduce Bibbles, the home of the bandana bib.

A little about me

With over 25 years of experience in the textile trade and retailing, it seemed quite surprising to have uncovered this wonderful product quite naturally. As a busy grandmother, with six daughters and several grandchildren I realised that the old style bib, unchanged in generations, was fast becoming a thing of the past.

My motivation

I originally created several bandana bibs for my granddaughter, she was a big dribbler! Before I knew it we went into production initially retailing on eBay, and then launching the Bibbles brand and website in March 2009 where due to customer requests we included larger Bibbles in our ‘shop’

We now ship globally to hundreds and hundreds of customers - most coming via word of mouth.

What exactly is the Bibble?

Bibbles are hand-made in Nottingham, in the UK from fabrics that I source and select locally every month. Every bandana bib is made within a few miles of my home, and from the highest quality cotton with a super absorbent fleece lining and nickel free, adjustable press-studs.

It’s the unique combination of cotton and fleece means that the outer cotton layer absorbs wetness whilst the fleece under-layer acts as a barrier, preventing the clothing from becoming wet. The 'tunnel' fleece disperses the wetness, creates airflow and allows moisture to evaporate so the Bibble dries out quickly.

Of course the Bibble is fully machine washable and is also available in smaller sizes for younger children and babies.

Please say hello
