About Us

Our Story

GladRags is a small business with big ideas: to make cloth pads and menstrual cups go mainstream and empower menstruators everywhere. From our office in Portland, Oregon, we ship comfortable, thoughtfully-designed reusable menstrual products to customers all over the world. Our menstrual cup, XO Flo, and full range of cloth pad styles provide menstruators of all types with body-friendly, versatile options that they can rely on for years.

Inspired by the simple utility, earth-friendliness, and comfort of cloth diapers, GladRags was founded in 1993. It began just a few miles from our current office, as a home-based business that quickly outgrew the extra bedroom. We've made many exciting changes over the years, but our mission has remained the same: to provide high quality, sustainable products to positively transform the experience of menstruation.

GladRags champions period positivity by displacing disgust and disposability with celebration and reusability. By reinforcing that menstruation is normal and educating the community about reusables, we erode the myth that periods should be shamed and hidden. As a result, reusables have rapidly shifted from “alternative menstrual hygiene” to an option that’s increasingly being embraced by the mainstream, particularly as the benefits like cost savings, concern for the earth, and the desire for a more comfortable period are being heralded by a growing GladRags online community.

GladRags is proud to be a certified Benefit Corporation since 2012. As a woman-owned company that insists on a sustainable approach to business, we use local bike delivery to receive finished goods from our local sewing partner, pay meticulous attention to supply chain and waste reduction, and put our company values of environmentalism, inclusivity, and body positivity into the very heart of the GladRags brand.

Our Mission

Our mission is to positively transform the experience of menstruation through reusable menstrual products and relevant education.
