My name is Sophie and I am the brains and sewist behind LCCE. I am a self employed wife and mother to 2 adorable children. A 12 year old girl, currently using Lady Crimson pads, and a 3 year old boy who keeps me on my toes. My family and I live in Sudbury, Ontario.
I first heard about cloth pads while surfing YouTube one day. I began researching and sewing my first cloth products. When I saw how amazing they were, I started sharing my experience with friends and family and Lady Crimson was born.
My research led me to many other reusable options. So I 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) are Organic Bamboo Fleece for our lights and Zorb for our moderates and heavies/postpartum.
-Organic Bamboo Fleece is what Cloth Diaper inserts are made of. It's a natural fabric that absorbs nicely. They contain no lead, BPA, phthalates or other harmful chemicals.
-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
One Star: Light Absorbency (Retiring)
Two Stars: Moderate Absorbency
Three Stars: Heavy
Four Stars: Post Partum/ Night Time (waterproofed)
