PRESS RELEASE: Kanga Care LLC and Bungies Diapers LLC Enter into Patent Licensing Agreement
BIG NEWS in the cloth diapering industry just broke! If you've been following me at all for a while you'll know that coming from a patent and trademark background, I'm very passionate about copied patents and infringed trademarks and I make an effort not to carry any infringing products in our store.
That's one of the reasons I've always loved Kanga Care and that we are long-time retailers of their brands. Kanga Care/Julie the owner is the original designer of the internal double gusset and all other brands with internal gussets are copycats, unless you have a license - like Bungies now does! This is the first time this has happened in our industry and it's very exciting.
Here's the press release direct from Kanga Care
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kanga Care LLC and Bungies Diapers LLC Enter into Patent Licensing Agreement for Double Inner Gusset Technology
[Golden, CO] - Kanga Care LLC, a leading manufacturer of cloth diapers and accessories, and Bungies Diapers LLC, a startup company specializing in subscription service cloth diaper bundles, announced today that they have entered into a licensing agreement. The licensing agreement, which takes effect immediately, grants Bungies Diapers the right to use Kanga Care's patented leak prevention technology to enhance the design of its cloth diaper products by including double inner gussets.
Kanga Care's double inner gusset technology is a unique feature that provides superior protection against leaks, ensuring that diaper contents remain contained and mess-free. Since the invention in 2007, the technology has been widely recognized in the industry as a gamechanger in cloth diaper design. Julie Ekstrom, owner, and CEO of Kanga Care created the solution for her infant daughter’s rashes and leaking diapers as a frustrated parent and grew a “kitchen table” company into a global brand and one of the leading competitors of cloth diapers and accessories on the market today. Bungies Diapers, who specializes in high-quality, subscription-based cloth diaper packages, is excited to incorporate this innovative technology into its products, further enhancing the quality and performance of its offerings.
"We are excited to partner with Bungies Diapers and share our innovative technology with them and drive more innovation into the cloth diaper industry," said Julie Ekstrom, CEO of Kanga Care. "Our double inner gusset technology has been a key differentiator for our products, and we are excited to see it now being used by another leading provider in the market. We believe that this licensing agreement will continue to help expand the use of cloth diapers across more mainstream channels and provide parents with more options for highquality, leak- proof diapers."
"We are thrilled to have access to Kanga Care's inner gusset technology. Over the years, Julie and Kanga Care have brought the cloth diaper community high-quality, innovative products that have set the bar high. We are honored to collaborate with such a highly respected brand,” said Ysora Waugh, Owner and Founder of Bungies Diapers. "This technology will allow us to provide our customers with a superior diapering experience and help us stand out in the crowded cloth diaper market."
The licensing agreement between Kanga Care and Bungie Diapers is a significant milestone in the cloth diaper industry as it is the first of its kind, being a licensing agreement between two cloth diaper companies for patented features. This licensing agreement is a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration. Both companies are committed to providing highquality products that meet the needs of parents and caregivers everywhere, and this partnership is a clear reflection of that commitment.
