Ethna Keown and her Business Slobberscarves


Mum of 5, Ethna Keown told us ,”Faced with a dribbly baby, I started making bibs (Slobberscarves) to help deal with his wet clothes. Ten years on, I now have a much larger product range than just the bibs but my ethos remains the same, I want to help mummies with the everyday troubles they face. I make soft clothes to help with comfort.

Bibs and baby clothes are my products and I am proud of them. I love that I can pass on my parenting experiences to my customers. I have 5 children and I have faced all manner of things do I use my experiences to help mummies as much as I can.

All of my products are made by me at home and I like to think that my passion comes across in my work.

I have 21 years of parenting experience and I still have the passion to learn what I can with regards to parenting. My products are things that I know will help because I have been there.

My piece of advice to those who are struggling to raise their business is that donโ€™t give up. Sometimes itโ€™s hard and you have to work hard but it is so so worth it. My customers have known me mostly on Instagram. Itโ€™s my main platform and ninety-five percent (95%) of my sales come from using Instagram.”

How does Ethna Manage home life and Slobberscarves?

“My greatest enemy and struggle in raising my business is TIME! As a mummy of 5, my house is never stopping. A good routine helps…first of all set it and sticking to it helps!!

My biggest achievement is being able to help mummies who are struggling with the same struggles I had. Teething rashes, soaked clothes, and the struggles with uncomfortable clothing. I love to see mummies who no longer have to change their little one’s clothes throughout the day because of dribbles!!

I am spending my free time with my family. My family is so so important to me. Your children are little for such a short time so I just love to spend time with them.”
