About the Event

One of the most impactful sustainable living actions we can make during the current times is switching to eco-friendly menstrual products, such as reusable cloth pads.


Join the Skrap and Eco Femme team for an engaging DIY workshop, as we walk you through how to stitch a fully functional, reusable cloth pad. These are great for using yourself and for gifting to your loved ones. Since you’re stitching these yourself, you can customise these and select designs of your choice (pick some fun, quirky designs from your old clothes or sentimental old cloth pieces at your home) and a size that you prefer.


The workshop will be conducted by Jessamijn Miedema, co-founder of Eco Femme, the brand that revolutionised cloth pads in India, and will be moderated by Shipra Agarwal, head of sustainability workshops at Skrap. This will be an interactive session, participants are welcome to ask questions about sustainable menstruation and various options available.


Materials required

  • Cotton cloth pieces
  • A pair of scissors
  • Needle and thread
  • Safety pins or bobby pins
  • Pair of press buttons
  • A sanitary pad/cloth pad for shape reference
  • Optional - A piece of waterproof material such as an umbrella fabric


Who can join the workshop?

  • This is an inclusive workshop and is open for everyone - gender and age no bar.
  • If you’re someone who cares about our environment and sustainable living, enjoys sewing or making things by hand/ learning new skills, you’ll love this workshop
  • We do recommend having a basic knowledge of stitching such as how to thread a needle and tie a knot
