Announcement   ***********READ ME*****************

Welcome to Misandry Made!

I'm so happy to be back making cloth pads again! Welcome to all my new customers and THANK YOU to all my previous C-Pop customers who have so happily followed me here! I appreciate each and every one of you! I look forward to selling another 3000+ pads to y'all! I've missed sewing and this wonderful community so much! I'm so glad to be back and now with more time in my life for sewing! Here's to another 6 years of happier periods!

Everything found here in Misandry Made is 100% hand crafted by yours truly. It's a one woman show over here! I do everything for my shop, from creating my original pattern way back in 2009 (C-Pop), to every ounce of prep work, to the sewing, to the packaging, to the customer service. Don't let the brand new store fool you, I've been doing this for a long time. :)

If you have questions about anything found in my shop, please read on, and check out the "About Misandry Made" page and the FAQ at the bottom of this announcement for more information.

*****FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS****

(Please read before contacting me. The answer to your question(s) can probably be found here.)

1) Do you do custom orders? -- I will occasionally have custom slots available for customers looking to spend a minimum of $100 USD. If you do not see a custom slot listed, there isn't one available at the moment. Check back at another time.

2) What is Misandry?/Why Misandry Made? -- It's a joke, a made up thing. "Misandry" is supposedly the "opposite of misogyny," but since men aren't actually systemically and historically oppressed, there's really no such thing as "misandry." But it IS pretty hilarious and a really funny inside joke with all my femme friends. Welcome to the party! ;) It's a big time contributor to male-tears everywhere. lolol. :)

3) How often do you list new items? -- I'm hoping to list new pads every 2 weeks or sooner. If you follow along on FB, IG or here on Etsy, I post updates prior to listing.

4) Is this your full time job? -- No, but it is one of my part time jobs! And I couldn't be happier!

5) How do I tell the different absorbencies apart? -- My 2L pads have ovals for the inner channeling, while the 3L and 4L pads have an hour glass shape for the inner channeling. 4L pads also have a small "4" sewn on a wing to denote absorbency difference. (On all pads sold after 10/2016, sorry for any confusion!)

5a) Why don't your cores go into the flares? -- When I originally created my pad design back in 2009, I designed the flares to help keep the pad itself in place, in your underpants, not to collect actual flow. Hence the cores being centered. The top fabric and fleece help wick the moisture back toward the centered core rather than funneling your flow to the edges of the flares where it would be uncomfortable.

6.) Do you make any other sized pads? Or pads that are a different shape, or absorbency? -- No, I only have templates for the 3 sizes I currently make. (7 inch, 9.5 inch and 11 inch.) Therefore I only make pads with this specific shape and I am not currently interested in making more than three different absorbencies.

7.) Do you have anymore of ______ specific print? -- No, I probably do not. But there is a definite possibility it could show up in a set or when I occasionally list "old favorite" prints. But I do not know when that may be.

8.) Do you use PUL in your pads? -- No, I don't. I list exactly what is in every pad, in every listing.

9.) Do you really do EVERYTHING for your shop? -- Yep! Just little 'ol me! I do ALL the things! I'm not joking when I say "it's a one woman show over here!"

10.) Do you have a FB page? -- Yes! https://www.facebook.com/misandrymade/ -- Be sure you are "following" the page when you like it, that way you will be more likely to see my updates.

10a.) It's also worth noting, if you like seeing updates from any of your favorite FB pages, be sure to interact with them! The more you like, comment and share, posts from your favorite pages, the more of them you will see.

On any given page you like, tap the "..." in the top right corner, then tap "notifications" and fill in what type of updates or information you want to be seeing but maybe aren't thanks to FB's algorithms. Don't let FB stop you from seeing what you want.

You can also follow me on Instagram: @misandrymade

11.) Do you do raffles/giveaways/coupon codes? -- Yes, yes and yes! When I'm on top of my game I try to do a raffle every month on FB via Rafflecopter, and I have a couple of customer appreciation coupon codes out there. Misandry Made's FB and IG pages are the best places to catch those sort of deals.

12.) Can you add extra snaps? -- Yes, I can, but it will cost an extra $2 dollars, per pad, to help cover the costs of an extra snap and the time spent applying them. Also, I think it's worth noting, that when I've done this in the past for other customers, the extra snap can make my pads bunch in an awkward way that prevents them from laying flatly in your underwear.

13.) Are all your packaging materials really recyclable?! -- Yes! Really, truly! All of my shipping materials come from Eco Enclose and are 100% Recyclable! The small white poly mailers are made from 100% recycled materials and are not only recyclable, but are also re-usable! While the larger grey poly mailers are made from 88% recycled materials and are also recyclable. Even the inner plastic bags are made from recycled materials and are recyclable! I do my best to enclose a "we care" card from Eco Enclose with every order, they say all this and more. Recycling may seem like a small thing, but it makes a big difference!

14.) Do you give away free pads for reviews? -- Nope, that is not something I am interested in. If you would like to buy my pads and review them, you are more than welcome to do so. Thank you in advance for your understanding and interest in my pads.

15.) Why aren't all your pads perfect and exactly the same every time!? - Because I am human and not a machine. If perfection is something you seek, I suggest you find a company that mass produces their pads, rather than handmade pads, made by one person.

16.) I sent you an email and you never got back to me! -- Was the answer you were looking for in this FAQ? Or alternately, your email was lost in the shuffle. Re-read the FAQ and then decide if you still need to ask me your question.

About

About Misandry Made

Misandry Made sprang from my desire to share the greatness that are cloth menstrual pads with the world and partially sustain myself doing something that I love and feel passionate about. I started using alternative menstrual products in 2007 and shortly after began making cloth pads for myself, family and friends. Eventually, with much encouragement, I was persuaded to sell cloth pads (and cloth pad accessories) here on Etsy. I can't believe how long ago 2009 feels now! After a brief hiatus and this new fresh start, I'm so excited to be creating cloth pads again! I'm so grateful for all my previous C-Pop customers who have followed me and all my new customers! I couldn't do this without you all. I sincerely appreciate your patronage. I hope to sell at least another 3000 pads. :)

It's a one woman show over here, from designing my pattern back in 2009, to picking out new prints (one of my favorite parts,) to all the prep work, to sew, sew, sewing every single pad, putting together every package and taking them all to the Post Office. Packages I know are made with love and are headed off to happy customers, who will (hopefully) have happier periods.

Learning about alternative menstrual products revolutionized my menstruating life, I wish I had learned of them sooner! I hope my pads can do the same for others. It makes me so happy to hear that my cloth pads help other people feel that same comfort, empowerment and peace of mind that I gained when I became a reusable menstrual product user.

I'm so grateful for the opportunity to be able to do something I love and feel so strongly about. Beyond sewing cloth pads, my other hobbies are; sewing things other than cloth pads, knitting things like hats and leg warmers, crocheting afghans and smashing the patriarchy. ;) I also am an avid reader and cat lover.

What is Misandry?/Why Misandry Made?

It's a joke, a made up thing. It's supposedly the "opposite of misogyny," but since men aren't actually (and have never been) systemically and historically oppressed, there's really no such thing as "misandry." But it IS pretty hilarious and a really funny inside joke with all my femme friends. Welcome to the party! ;) It's also a funny dig at "Mens Rights Activist," those ass clowns. And it's a big time contributor to male tears everywhere. lolol. :)
