We have more details on Cloth, the natural baby shop coming to 1605 E. Passyunk Ave.

We caught up with Angela & Shai Halperin, the husband and wife team behind Cloth, the new baby store that will be opening next month at 1605 E. Passyunk Ave.


“We also plan to carry nursing supplies, baby carriers, organic bath products, local and hand-made items, and other responsibly-made baby goods, gifts, and must-haves for the urban parent,” Angela Halperin told us in an email. “Our store and e-commerce site will offer a local gift registry that serves as an alternative to big box stores.”

Neighborhood residents since 2007, the Halperins had a son in 2010 and quickly noticed all the cloth-diapered babies around. “My constant complaint that there should be a cloth diaper store in the neighborhood quickly turned into, ‘we should open a cloth diaper store in the neighborhood!'” she said.

The couple also plans to hold small classes at the store – free cloth diaper and baby-wearing workshops, for starters. There will also be a small play area and nursing/changing rooms.

“For those unfamiliar, modern cloth diapering is easy, eco-friendly, and can literally save families thousands of dollars over disposables,” she said.

Plan is to open about the second week of May. We’ll keep you posted.
