Cloth pad makers

Here is a list of makers I have experience of using. I’ve either bought from them or been sent pads to test or review. Most of these makers are really talented work-at-home small businesswomen. Some of them also make cloth nappies, washable wet wipes, washable breast pads, kids’ clothes, wet/dry bags and all sorts of other things. So even if cloth pads aren’t your thing, it’s worth checking out their pages for other lovely stuff.

I ordered a custom pad from this lady via her Etsy page after spotting some awesome Doctor Who “exploding Tardis” fabric and she couldn’t have been more helpful. I’ve since bought more with glow-in-the-dark snaps. Very thin pads; not at all bulky. Well worth the extra shipping from Canada.

An American maker so postage is more but she is known for sending freebies with her orders so well worth a look.

 
 

I hope this list is helpful. It certainly demonstrates the huge range of shapes and styles available so there’s bound to be something to suit everyone. I’ll add to the list as my stash grows.

If these or any other makers want to send me their products to review, I’ll do so gladly! Email me at piepatchblog@gmail.com

    Thanks for the comprehensive list. My absolute fave brand have stopped making – they were by Ella’s House and were made of hemp. I’ve not found anything that is anywhere near as good. Do you know of any companies that use hemp? I’ve found the honour your flow ones just don’t get clean with the bamboo or velour fabrics – the hemp were amazing but mine have all worn thin now and I might as well stick a single ply tissue in my cecks for all the good they do…

    • The Pie Patch April 16, 2014 at 22:09 Reply

      Haaa! I haven’t tried any hemp but I’m sure I’ve heard of some that use it. There are a few forums on fb where you can ask stuff like this – Reusable Menstrual Products & Paddicts, The Bloody Waste, Feminine Wear Forum. They’re a helpful bunch.

        Thanks I’m amazed my cycle has dropped from five days to three x x

      • The Pie Patch April 20, 2014 at 14:03

        Weird, isn’t it! Only thing is, it means you don’t get to use as many pretties! 😦

      • nessypie April 20, 2014 at 14:07

        Very but makes sense the idea of all the chemicals I wish more people were aware….won’t stop me from buying x

      • The Pie Patch April 20, 2014 at 14:15

        It hasn’t stopped me buying either!

    […] There are lots and lots of UK makers. Usually work-at-home mums and, in my experience, always really helpful and friendly. I’ve written a whole post listing the brands I’ve used with links to their sites. You can read that here. […]

      • Tamz May 13, 2014 at 23:44

        Would that be down to finger slippage? LOL

      • The Pie Patch May 14, 2014 at 06:42

        Sounds ever so wrong … But, yes.
