Well…. after 2 years, a new baby, and countless of home sewn diapers later, we are uprooting ourselves and moving back to Malaysia at the end of February. It is a bittersweet feeling, on one hand I am looking forward to living in familiar territory (the land of my birth) but on the other hand, Cambodia has also endeared herself to us in so many ways. For instance having to deal with my son’s pre-school adventures (and trauma!) and sharing experience with expat and local parents alike has enriched my outlook on things. But enough of melancholic nostalgia, on the business side, my fabrics, PUL, sewing machine and notions are now nicely packed in boxes ready to be shipped out in 2 weeks time. And so for the time being I will not be taking any orders in this transition period and upon settling down nicely back home I will announce the re-opening of my business right here, so stay tuned!!!

Aw’kun Cambodia, you will always hold a special place in my heart… :*(



Just to let you know some fab and awesome prints (PUL and cotton) are making their way on a plane to me right now…..  Will keep you posted once the goodies are here……

thanks for following my blog and supporting Keen On Cloth!! you guys rock!!


Suffered some major post-festivities hangups.. 🙂 plus I was unable to access my site for several days, now it’s back up and running, and check out what I have in store. For some reason it’s taking toooooo long to upload the new prints, so I have opened an album at picasa but viewing is only on invitation. If you want to check them out please leave me your email address at keenoncloth at gmail.com and I will send you an invite.

Many thanks for your patience!

So it’s that time of the year when Eid comes to celebrate the end of the fasting month of Ramadhan. I will be taking a two-week break from sewing to prepare the house, bake cookies, cook Eid favourites, and entertain guests, and so forth! This will be our second Raya with Iris, but the first significant one since last year she was only 2 days old when Eid came. So mamas, thanks for your queries and interest, but I bid you some patience, and I will be taking orders again later. So watch this space!!!

Thanks everyone, and to my Muslim customers, I bid you a meaningful Eid-ul-Fitri! Eat, drink and be merry!


As promised, here is what’s new on offer by me. The Baby Steps EC Pants is a great starter training pants, it is trim as undies, and your child can pull up and down on her own and be snapped off when needed. Great for the elimination communication family! Can be made from either a fully outer PUL or cotton, the choice is yours! The diaper body consists of three layers, from the outer cover of PUL or cotton knit, a hidden layer of killington diaper flannel, and inner layer of either sherpa, bamboo velour or bamboo fleece. The soaker has two layers of super thirsty bamboo fleece fabric. Sizing from 3kg to 16+kg. Please enquire about the price.

Check out also new PUL prints available in boy, girl and gender neutral colours!

Okay, I have something new in the works…. but only after finishing on several orders and then I will be able to announce this. So please keep coming to the site, to find out what it is… well, okay, here’s a sneak peek!! So, watch this space!!

These I can do for you too… Convert the AIOs into AI2s and fitteds too… so the soakers won’t be attached to the hidden inner layer but will be snapped in to the body so that the CDs dry much much faster!
