Mandya Pads are soft, hypo-allergenic, washable panty liners that can be used for spotting, mild incontinence, vaginal discharge or on those ‘expecting my period’ days. 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.
The colour and pattern of the pads have been kept gender-neutral so that they can be used by men and women alike. These pads are made by trained women of Mandya district in Karnataka. By the way, these pads are eco-friendly as they save millions of disposables from the landfill!
Comfortable: Natural soft fabric, no rashes
Economical: No monthly expenses on pads
Eco-friendly: No trash

Discreet napkin-style foldable design
Use the buttons on the wings to fit the liner on to the panty. After use, the pad needs to be soaked in cold water. It can then be hand-washed or machine-washed and dried in the sun. The foldable design makes it discreet when hung for drying.
These liners 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 and liners. 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.
