Thank you for supporting a mom-owned, mom-run, and mom-created company!
Madhu, started her entrepreneurial journey two years ago when she came up with an idea for a personal pain point she had as a new mom. That idea turned into a Patent-Pending Diaper Bag that is useful, functional, and fashionable. Thanks to the Kiva micro-lending platform, her dream became a reality. Funds from Kiva helped her fund her first product line production, and thus, went from being an Hardware Engineer to a Bag designer(Well, initially Diaper Bag Designer!).
Madhu firmly believes that women need accessories that provide confidence and simplify their day to day lives while adding the much-needed style. At Pretty Pokets, it’s her mission to add incredible value to women’s life by designing and creating intentional products that find harmony between usefulness, common sense, and fashion.
The business was started with six products, and now the products have double in number to serve a broader category of women’s accessories. Thanks to amazing support from women around the world Pretty Pokets is quickly gaining momentum and attention.
Pretty Pokets Diaper Bag is the winner of multiple awards like Baby Retailer Magazine “2020 Top Choice Award” in the Diaper Bag Category, Creative Child Magazine “2020 Product of the Year Award” in the Baby Travel Aids Category and was also recognized by popular media platforms like BuzzFeed, POPSUGAR, Bay Area Parents, etc. The bag was also the finalist of the 2019 Eco-excellence awards.
