Our Pads

We have created three lines of Shomota pads. They have all been named, in Bengali, after flowers that are native to India, the Kamini (Orange Jasmine), the Gada (Marigold) and the Poddo (Lotus). All of our pads are made with 100% cotton flannel for the absorbent inner layers and 100% organic cotton in the traditional Indian hand block print fabric for the outer layers. Our medium plus, heavy and heavy plus pads all come with a terry cloth TPU waterproof layer. Our pads come packaged in the traditional Bengali way, the tonga, which are made from recycled newspaper. The tonga is a way we can be environmentally sustainable and give you a piece of news from Kolkata!

Kamini Pads

are a traditional wing shaped, all in one pad and come in five different absorbency levels. Kamini Light Pad, 8.5” (21.5cm) in length, a pantyliner used for those light days, everyday coverage or for women suffering from mild incontinence. Kamini Medium Pad, 10.25” (26cm) in length, for daytime use and made without a waterproof layer making it breathable. Kamini Medium Plus Pad, 10.25” (26cm) in length, for daytime use and made with a waterproof layer when you need that extra assurance. Kamini Heavy Pad, 11.5” (29.2cm) in length, used for those heavy days and night time and made with a waterproof layer.

Gada and Poddo Pads

are designed with pockets on each end that hold a folded 100% cotton flannel insert. The Gada inserts are interchangeable between light and medium and the Poddo inserts are interchangeable between heavy and heavy plus, so dependent on your flow you can change your insert accordingly. A set of two inserts can be purchased separately. Gada Light Pad, 10.5” (26.7cm) in length, winged pocket pad that comes with a 5 layer absorbent 100% cotton flannel insert. Gada Medium Pad, 10.5” (26.7cm) in length, winged pocket pad that comes with an 8 layer absorbent 100% cotton flannel insert. Poddo Heavy Pad, 11.5” (29.2cm) in length, winged pocket pad that comes with an 8 layer absorbent 100% cotton flannel insert and made with a waterproof layer. Poddo Heavy Plus Pad, 11.5” (29.2cm) in length, winged pocket pad that comes with a 10 layer absorbent 100% cotton flannel insert and made with a waterproof layer.
