All fabrics used have been chosen with care and respect for their natural properties to best do the job in hand. All pads (except Panty Liners/Thins) have a super-absorbent core of bamboo/cotton and a PUL (polyurethane laminate) leakproof layer. All pads have a choice of cover in 100% Cotton. Most of our fabrics are limited editions - so if you see something you like - get in quick!
When you order your pads you will choose a fabric collection - fun, funky, floral, plain colours, black, white or our organic range. You will be sent a selection of pads from within that collection (unless you choose black or white of course!). Fabrics may on occasion vary to the ones pictured due to availability but we do try to keep written up what is actually in stock. If you have a preference for individual fabrics or from a variety of collections then just note your choices in the comments box on the order form.
The following collections of pad covers are available for you to choose from :
FunThe pad covers are made from 100% brushed cotton flannel - a soft, comfortable, absorbent and natural fabric. A selection of fun prints are co-ordinated with a plain underside.
FunkyThe pad covers are made from 100% brushed cotton flannel. They have a funky print top-side and co-ordinated plain underside.
FloralThe covers come in a range of floral prints made from 100% cotton (not brushed) with a co-ordinated plain underside (beige).
The covers come in a range of rich plain colours and are 100% brushed Cotton Flannel. The top and underside of the pad are the same colour.
Pads are also available in stylish just black (not brushed) or just white (brushed cotton). If you choose white please be aware of the greater potential for staining.
For those ready to take another step and, by popular request, we have introduced an organic range of pads available in a selction of prints and plain colours (last photo). As in all our pads, these have a leakproof layer (PUL), an ultra absorbent bamboo/cotton core and, a 100% certified organic cotton outer cover (not brushed).
Cotton production accounts for more than 10% of world pesticide use and exposes growers and pickers, wildlife and the environment to poisoning. Pesticides contaminate water supplies and farm labourers can suffer long term illness from exposure to chemicals. Organic cotton on the other hand, uses 100% natural inputs like manure, beneficial insects etc. so no chemicals or artificial fertilisers are used and neither, have plants been genetically modified. For this reason, organic cotton is fast becoming appreciated by people all over the world.
The organic cotton used for the outer covers originates from a worker's co-operative in Southern India. This cotton is also certified as fair trade. Through fair trade farmers are paid a fair and stable price. All employees within the co-operative receive above average wages and are provided with full secure employment throughout the year and employment related benefits. Only environmentally friendly 'non azo' reactive dyes are used to obtain the bright colours. Organic fabrics have been washed and pre-shrunk but will need to be washed before use to remove rice water starch. As fabrics are handloomed they will have irregularities/imperfections. This does not affect the strength of the fabric. in any way
