Vermont Business Magazine Mamava, the Burlington-based expert in designs for mamas on the go, creator of the Mamava Lactation Suite for nursing and pumping, has installed banners around the city celebrating National Breastfeeding Month. Mamava collaborated with Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, graphic design and brand strategy studio, and The Karma Birdhouse, the community of professional and creative culture at 47 Maple street -- home to 25+ innovative businesses.

WHAT: “Mamas of Invention” an installation inspired by the patriotic buntings used to decorate buildings for celebrations in the past.  A series of large scale multi-color banners celebrating the female form will adorn the front of the building for a two-week period.

WHEN:  On display from Tuesday, August 29th through the end of the 25th Annual South End Art Hop on September 10th.

WHERE: The Karma Birdhouse, 47 Maple Street at Burlington’s waterfront.

WHY:  A salute to National Breastfeeding Month and the start of South End Art Hop, the installation seeks to contrast the historical nature of the 45,000 Square Ft. warehouse built in 1919, with the contemporary issues of motherhood and femininity.  Mamava is transforming the culture of breastfeeding in the US by delivering affordable accommodations for Mamas to pump in clean, comfortable and private spaces - at work or on-the-go.  This art celebrates Mamava’s impact and gives an inspiring nod to nursing Mamas during National Breastfeeding Month.
