Red Set 9" Pads
Red Set 9" Pads
Double up with this set of medium flow day pads…This is a great set to start with if you are unsure about making the switch to cloth pads. Perfect for day or night use (although we recommend longer pads for overnight heavy flow).
Reusable pads and menstrual products can save you hundreds of dollars (that would otherwise go to male-owned corporations) AND spare landfills heaps of rayon/cotton...all because we are taking a little more time and care with how we relate to our bodies. It's worth it, and it really feels SO SO much better to have soft cloth on your skin/vag than to have that crunchy weird-ass material disposable pads are made of.
The top fabric: We are working with an Indian woman who is buying direct/ethically from makers: The Chevron print pad is screen printed on fabric and the other was made using the age old process of mud resist dying technique. During this process a paste of mud, gum and various other organic materials is applied to the fabric using blocks then it is spread to dry. After it is dried it is dyed using organic dye.
The core/middle fabric is made of an unbleached organic cotton and bamboo blend.
Hand-sewn in Grass Valley, CA by a women-owned and operated business ~ measuring ~9" long. Snaps hold it together.
Caring for cloth pads is really easy. You can hand-wash with some castile soap OR throw it in the washing machine. Air-drying is best for preserving the pad's lifespan but either way, this should last you many cycles and years of bleeding. Although the fabric has been pre-washed, expect your pad to shrink a bit in the first few washes.
