Dharwad Pads are absorbent, hypo-allergenic, washable cloth pads for period care. They are compact to carry (can be folded to fit into a purse or a pocket), easy-to-maintain (can be hand-washed or machine-washed) and rash-free. Rid yourself of the plastic-y feel and gift yourself some Petals comfort. Each pad lasts 2 to 4 years, which means money-saving and positive environmental impact, as they save many disposables from the landfill.
Comfortable: Natural soft fabric, no rashes
Economical: No monthly expenses on pads
Eco-friendly: No trash
Healthier: No risk of infections
Hassle-free: Machine-washable, easy-to-dry
Discreet napkin-style foldable design
The foldable pads can be folded any way, but the patterned fabric has to face the panty. Use the buttons on the wings to fit it to the panty. After use, the pad needs to be soaked in cold water. It can then be hand-washed or machine-washed. The foldable design makes it discreet when hung for drying and is also easy-to-dry as each layer is opened up.
These pads are made by a group of women from Dharwad, Karnataka, who earn a dignified, sustainable living making reusable menstrual hygiene products, supported with market linkages by StoneSoup.
The benefits of reusable menstrual hygiene products to women’s health and environmental cleanliness are well known. By switching from disposable, single-use pads to cloth, you keep yourself safe from exposure to the harsh chemicals present in the synthetic fragrances, bleaches and gels used in plastic pads. They also help you minimise your trash and save you from the recurring expenses on disposables. Your purchase also helps give the women of Dharwad a source of gainful employment.
