Hana Banana Britches Review and Giveaway

Here’s the thing about having super talented friends – you get to be the test dummy for all their shenanigans. But seeing as the shenanigans always end up being amazing, I really don’t mind.

A few months ago, one of my wonderful friends, Soraya Mohideen, started her very own business called Hana Banana Britches. Soraya and I are both cloth mamas. Cloth tends to be a little more bulky than disposables depending on the type you’re using so there have been a few moms who also make cloth-friendly clothing. Hana Banana is one of them.

They’re comfy, cloth-friendly, “grow-with-me” jeans and trousers for your little fluffy bums, handmade in Cape Town.

A high rise waist accommodates even the biggest cloth nappy. Hana Banana Britches extend through the waist using side gusset snaps and the contrast cuff rolls down to accommodate those growing legs – these britches grow with your baby.

They come in 3 sizes:

Small (0 – 6 months)
Cotton Twill: R280; Denim: R300

Medium (6 months – 2 years)
Cotton Twill: R300; Denim: R330

Large (2 years – 4 years)
Cotton Twill: R320; Denim: R350

What we thought of Hana Banana Britches

Soraya was kind enough to send The Munchkin a pair of Paw Patrol britches and he was SO excited. He jumped up and down on the spot when he saw them and took his pants off immediately to put them on! I couldn’t get a picture of him in them because he was just running around with pure unadulterated joy!

I love them too. At first I thought they were a bit pricey for baby clothes but they’re a good investment if you think just how much wear you’re getting out of them. He was given a Large size but is still on the smallest side snap and there is a lot more room for growth length wise as well. These are going to last him at least another 2 years!

The waistband is adjustable using snaps. The Munchkin is still on the smallest setting.


Full length vs the length The Munchkin is on right now. The reversible cuff can be customised depending on the fabric that is in stock.

Guys, I honestly tried to get some pictures of The Munchkin wearing these but he gets so excited every time he puts them on he just runs around like a tiny maniac and everything is a blur. But they are so great. We’re potty training at the moment so he’s not in nappies a lot of the time, but even so these britches still fit great.

    Aww this is perfect t for my 3 year old son.

    1) He looves paw patrol
    2) I love all things adjustable. Because of his small waist all his pants fit him length wise but is too big waist wise.
    3) his cloth bum brother can wear it once he has outgrown them.
