Over 5 million babies are born each year in Europe alone and it is estimated that 1 in 3 parents use a Moses basket. 'As a result, we felt that the time had come for the Moses basket to be updated to suit modern standards of quality and safety. And so Moba® was born!'
Many new parents aren't aware that before buying a traditional hand-made natural fibre Moses baskets they should be considering the following: Their size and quality can be inconsistent therefore the mattresses and stands do not fit correctly. They can fray or even occasionally break forming sharp points and scratchy surfaces. They are unable to be cleaned thoroughly. They can rot in storage; the wicker or palm leaf can split or degrade over time becoming contaminated with bacteria and small mites. They are not generally made from sustainable or reusable resources and are often shipped thousands of miles across oceans creating a very bad carbon footprint. Most are fumigated to remove bugs in the fibres and picked up in transportation. The residue from the strong chemical spray could be hazardous to babies and has been linked to asthma.
The creators of Moba®, in their previous business used to import large quantities of natural fibre Moses baskets for the nursery trade and experienced all of these issues first hand. This was the inspiration for Moba®
