In 2003, new parents Michael and Ellen Diamant realized that their diaper bag options were limited. Surrounded by pink and blue baby bags, Ellen sketched a bag that was fashion-savvy and super functional—particularly for the on-the-go city life they led. The Duo Diaper Bag was born and they’ve never looked back.
A CRAZY KIND OF PASSION
Neither Ellen nor Michael come from the baby industry. Ellen’s passion for product innovation and her background as an art director in publishing and luxury goods marketing & branding provides that special Skip Hop vision. After 15 years as a tech entrepreneur, Michael’s drive to break new ground opens new opportunities constantly. It’s the secret sauce that defines Skip Hop—the balancing of modern design and true functionality.
