Organic cloth mama pads?

Ok, I am having a heck of a time finding organic (not including bamboo) mama pads without a polyester fleece backing, and without PUL in them! I special ordered a few from Naturally Hip awhile back, but shipping KILLS, especially when they are pretty pricey to begin with :/ I just want something fashionable (the backing doesnt have to be organic, just a cool printed cotton, I wouldnt mind if this were bamboo). I love the hemp fleece for the top, but no one seems to carry it!
So I guess what I am wanting- a maker who uses hemp fleece, has a good design, and has cool printed cottons for a backing, and who does not use microfiber, PUL, zorb or polyester! (or who has alternative's to these in stock) Anyone have any ideas??

You could check with mamabearbabywear on Etsy. I know she does some great quick-dry folding pads with cotton velour.

Re: Organic cloth mama pads?

Hemp tops and natural backs. I think I've seen some Australian sellers who use those materials, but I haven't otherwise come across it. If any of the ladies who have liked your thread are willing to have organic bamboo velour tops (which I personally love), there are two companies who do wool backs on these either as their norm or as an option--Go with the Flo and Fussybutt Moonbow.

Fwiw, I have some hemp silk topped light day/pantiliners with wool backs, but I find that the hemp silk really holds stains more than any other fabric I've tried. Indeed, I think the company that made them stopped using the fabric for that reason.

If your reason for wanting to get all natural materials is primarily concern for earthcare, you might want to check out Amy's Rag Bag for recycled material pads. I've not used hers, but they certainly are creative. You will not find hemp tops however.

Re: Organic cloth mama pads?

p.s.--I take it you have an extremely light flow if you do not need a water resistant backing like wool or fleece? I'm trying to rack my brain for pantiliners that might suit you, since obviously, almost all the pad makers use a water resistant backing and/or PUL (I hate PUL too).

Another option if you don't mind non-organic cotton velour (she also has organic bamboo velour) is Pampered Mama's "naturally breathable" selections. These are a similar absorbency to her regular absorbency pads but without the fleece backing.

My bad, the Pampered Mama are called "Naturally Basic," not naturally breathable and can be accessed in the customs are open link here: http://hyenacart.com/PamperedMama/mt...OPENOrder-HERE
