Today I have the delight of bring your Nahautal and her company Simple Loving Family. Nahautal is a long-time reader here as well as a long-time sponsor. During the years that she has been reading and commenting on Clean I really feel like we've gotten to know each other. She and I have even begun discussing a cross-country cultural exchange, my family visiting hers in Costa Rica and hers visiting mine here in Wisconsin.
What is your company and how long have you been in business?
I have two, one is only in beautiful Latin America (cloth diapers, baby carriers, etc.), but Simple Loving Family is were I can put everything I create and design.
Well, I just love to create with my hands since I was a kid, but it took me a long time to believe in myself and that I could create things that were beautiful, which I don't consider so important, but useful.
One of the main concerns I have is that the item will fulfill a purpose and that it will last long - for example that the seams will withstand years of use and washing.
I also find lots of inspiration in Nature and specially in fruits and vegetables.
I was very happy when I came up with the name Simple Loving Family because that finally say all I want to: to help families to stay together; to live more simple, meaningful, and earth friendly lives; and to get closer together by playing. With very simple things like cloth produce bags or napkins we reduce much waste and also I love to design toys that the children always go to. Baby wearing and breastfeeding are also things I love to promote for the bonds that they help to create.
I worry a lot about packing, so I try not to create waste. That's why I sew cloth bags for the baby slings, so they can be reused.
My other main concern is that everything will be affordable, so I try to keep prices low.
She is also offering a giveaway where you pick your own prize! One lucky reader will receive any product of their choice (excluding Baby Carriers), shipped anywhere in the wold.

I tried to comment but my post has mysteriously disappeared. Trying again -- but it should only be one entry for me. I'm not on facebook so can't do anything there.
Thank you Nahuatl and Simple Loving Family!
