If you are a cloth diaper user and bumGenius is your brand of choice, then you are probably excited to see all of the new and fun prints that bumGenius has available.

This article will focus on the patterns and not limited edition colors.

bumGenius Chico Print / Kipling Print
The bumGenius Chico print premiered in June 2015. The print features palm leaves, snakes, and a bear with boy silhouette in a variety of blue, green, cream, and white shades. The print is named for Chico Mendes a Brazilian environmentalist and conservation activist who campaigned for rubber tapping trees and preserving the Amazon. He won awards and accolades for his work.
This print is very unique in that it was originally named "Kipling" and was renamed to "Chico" within the first day of its online release. Rudyard Kipling, the original namesake for the diaper, was a British poet, writer, and novelist. He was regarded as an innovator in short stories and wrote "The Jungle Book" among other works. He won the Nobel Prize among other honors. After the print was released with his name, Cotton Babies received information that Kipling was disrespectful and demeaning to people of other cultures, prompting Cotton Babies to rename the diaper "Chico".
