Announcement   We are increasing the absorbency level options for our longer (14" and 12") pads. Currently some of those listings are running low but we'll have quantities re-stocked soon!

We love these pads, we enjoy making them, we hear(and feel) that they are the best... and we’re excited to keep spreading the empowerment of these tools to as many menstruators as possible! Tell your friends! Leave reviews! ;)

About

All-to-often large scale economics has told us what our “problems” are, and sold us crap, band-aide, “solutions” to them. We believe the "feminine hygiene" products that large corporations make are a big part of the problem. Disposable pads and tampons often contain harmful chemicals and plastics--- and, can we be real here----are not enjoyable to wear! Whether it's them sucking up our bodies natural moisture, crinkling, requiring lots of packaging, feeling artificial or just in general being bleach white, the message is everywhere: that periods are a burden to be disposed of, a weakness we must keep silent, stigmatized and disconnected from.....

ACTUALLY---Menstruation is real. Period. It is a part of many of our lives. And not all people feel represented or excited by mainstream options for catching-that-which-sheds, we certainly didn’t.

Cozy Folk exists because we want there to be less shame and less pain around periods! We want practical, reusable and integrated tools so that our lives are not harming or resisting mother Earth. And, hot damn if we aren’t trying to actively resist patriarchy, sustain ourselves (on part-time incomes, growing/distributing food, and dancing while attempting to hold time & space for our other dreams to flourish) and have a creative and innovative time while doing it!!!
