The Pads

Our pads come in two parts. There’s a super absorbent Zorb layer, either a single rectangle or a large rectangle that’s bifolded, each with a nice fabric topper.

The absorbent layer is held in place with two soft loops on a round, waterproof wrap. The wrap is snapped into place on the knickers and can be worn all day (unless there’s a spill) and the Zorb layer can be changed when necessary. You can read about how we developed the pads in The Pads – History of Developing The Pattern.

We will provide each menstruating youngster with some brand new knickers/pants so that they have something to snap the wrap around, as many people in Tanzania don’t own underwear.
