Sophie Prisque is the brains and sewist behind LCCE. She is a self employed wife and mother to 2 adorable children. A 13 year old girl, currently using Lady Crimson pads, and a 4 year old boy who keeps her on her toes. Her family lives in Sudbury, Ontario.
She first heard about cloth pads while surfing YouTube one day. She began researching and sewing her first cloth products. When she saw how amazing they were, Sophie started sharing her experiences with friends and family and Lady Crimson was born.
Sophie's research led her to many other reusable options. So she decided to add other zero waste products to help women make a healthy change for their period as well as day to day living.
About LCCE Cloth Pads
Our goal is to offer a long lasting, absorbent and beautiful pad! We tested shapes, and fabrics until we were satisfied with our results. As a small business, we enjoy supporting other makers, so we shop at our local sewing stores when possible, purchase patterns from hard working stay at home moms who create them, and get our amazing prints from small business print designers.
The types of fabrics we use for the absorbency layer (Core) is Zorb for our moderates and heavies/postpartum.
-Zorb is the leading synthetic absorbent fabric on the market. It absorbs 10 times its weight in under 2 seconds. It soaks up 20 times faster than other materials such as bamboo, cotton, hemp and knits which makes it the perfect fabric for our moderate and heavy pads.
Our absorbency is marked with a embroidered star
No Stars: Liner
Two Stars: Moderate Absorbency
Three Stars: Heavy
Four Stars: Post Partum/ Night Time (waterproofed)
