Review written by my trusted reviewer and experienced cloth diaper mom, Mandy. Photos are of Camden and not Mandy’s daughter Anna due to upload problems.
Moraki is a family run business out of Southern California that makes a fantastic diaper! Moraki are one size diapers that can be used as a pocket or an all in two and fit from seven to more than 40 pounds.
Moraki diapers are made in the US, and they only use suppliers in the United States. Charlie from Moraki says the following:
We were struggling to find a good fitting, made in USA diaper with cute prints, so I set out to make my own. I’ve been sewing since I can remember, so it was a fun task, though not as easy as I expected! I was a WAHM (started www.sochicboutique.com) and feeling unfulfilled with the market I was in… A couple friends who tried my diapers insisted I at least consider making them on a grander scale. I did a lot of research and sourcing and made a business plan.
Community and keeping things local are extremely important to me. So is creating awareness about cloth diapers. I am currently training to be an accredited Real Diaper Association circle leader. I hold monthly meetings for cloth diaper support in East County SD. I am very passionate about cloth diapers and offering support (for any brand!). I have big plans for getting cloth into hospitals and making it a more realistic shift for low income families. I look forward to the future when cloth diapering becomes more main stream. In addition to local support, I hope to contribute by offering diapers that work and are easy to use.
There are even plans to add a fitted and all in one diaper soon!
Moraki diapers consist of a waterproof PUL cover with a snap down rise and snap closure. There is a wing snap to prevent wing drooping at the legs that took me two or three uses to even notice! Once I began using it, I found I liked the diaper even better. (Autumn: a wing snap is vital for establishing a good fit on small or skinny babies/children. Wing droop is so frustrating! I love the addition of the wing snap and used it on Camden)
The diaper is well-constructed. There is a pocket opening closer to the middle than any diaper I’ve tried, which makes it easy to get the insert to agitate out in the wash. There is also a PUL tummy panel that is fantastic for keeping baby dry if you decide to lay in an insert. I tried it both as a pocket and an all in two, and I can’t find a thing negative to say about either way! (Autumn: I whole-heartedly agree!)
Moraki diapers fit my Anna quite well. Once I figured out that wing snap, I fell in love with the fit. You can snap it to either set of snaps to adjust for chunky or skinny legs. We clearly use the upper row! Even Grandma loves these diapers (a true test!).
I love the hemp blend Fold-To-Fit inserts. Because they’re blended with organic cotton, they can go right next to baby’s skin with no problem. They are sewn in a circular design to allow for faster drying. They come in three sizes: small, medium, and onesize/overnight. Each insert has four layers. I love how absorbent and trim these inserts are. I’ve sucessfully used them overnight. I’ve even used one in a different brand diaper for overnight when my Morkai was dirty.
For reference, Anna is 7 months old, 27″, and about 17 lbs. Camden is 2 years old, 37″, and 28 lbs. Notice how well it fits both babies!
I think these are my new favorite pocket diapers. Want one of your own? There’s one up for grabs! Enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

I received one Moraki diaper and inserts for review, with no other compensation. Opinions are my own.
Just a note from Autumn: I cannot tell you how much this diaper makes me happy. Moraki diapers fit excellent, they are made in the USA, they are created by a family that loves cloth and has a passion for spreading the cloth diaper love and the prints/colors are fun.
With 4 rise settings Moraki Diapers are a smart investment for a true one-sized system.
A quick Google search will show you just how well received Moraki Diapers has been to the cloth diapering community.
