About

Do you remember the time when you had no access to a bin or a toilet, and you got your period? Or when you were running late for a meeting and couldn’t find a tampon in your messy bag? Or the time you visited a friend and realized there was no bin in the bathroom? Or when you had an accident but the sink was on the other side of the door? Or the first time your daughter got her period and got caught off guard?

Fear no more; the Period Purse is the answer to these problems.

The Period Purse is here to help girls and women deal with their monthly period. The purse is a practical accessory that allows you to keep all of your products in one place. You will be better organised and prepared for any situation - even when that time of the month comes unexpectedly.

 

 

 

Adapt the purse to your needs.
Adapt the purse to your needs.

As females, we cannot avoid our periods, but we can be prepared for them. The Period Purse removes the unnecessary stress that we are faced with every month, so girls and women can feel in control of their lives.

The Period Pouch: an on-the-go sanitary bag

Specifically designed for those awkward situations when you don’t have access to a sanitary bin, the Period Pouch is a custom designed bag created with two inner pockets, allowing you to seal it effortlessly with two easy folds. No leaks, no smell, no massive amounts of toilet paper. That way, you can store the used product in your purse until you come across the next bin. The pouches can be ordered as re-fillable packets that slot in to the Period Purse.

 

 

Cusomized Wet Wipes: a hygienic solution for any situation

Do you remember when you had an accident but the sink was on the other side of the door? Or the first time your daughter got her period and got caught off guard? 

Carefully selected flushable, non-perfumed & non-alcohol wet wipes. The wet wipes are customized so they can fit into the Period Purse, and can be ordered as re-fillable packets.

Your age doesn't matter, we all get our period

My Awkward Story

I was horseback riding back home in Iceland - and had my period. I had to change a tampon but I was out in the country site. Since tampons aren't that biodegradable I had to put it in the pocket of my jacket. For the next 2 hours of riding I couldn't stop thinking about 'What if someone reaches into my pocket for a horse treat and finds it?' Also, my thoughts, I ruined the jacket. From here I started designing the disposable bags "the Period Pouch", a key feature of the period purse. 

Risks and challenges

This is my first time mass producing a product. However I have found reliable manufacturing partners who have been recommended from business associates and friends. However I have added 2 extra months to the time plan as I want to ensure that we deliver a great product to you within the time frame we say.
