Isn't it time we agreed that red is the colour of blood?

Living in a society where women are taught to hide something so natural as their menstruation – keeping hush about their pain, hiding their packets of pad in a black polybag or a newspaper, avoiding the temples, being ashamed of talking about periods and whatnot, two individuals decided it was time for the society to change! Time to change the ads where blue ink represents periods.

Menstruation should not be seen as a curse, it is a sign of being fertile – it’s natural, it’s beautiful, it’s a gift. It is the reason why any child is born, the reason why you and I are here.

And so, ilaaria – boxes which come with a handle, boxes which can be gifted. From our logo to our website, we recognise that red is the colour of blood.

We provide environmentally conscious solution for a woman’s everyday needs. Wearing a pad doesn’t need to be uncomfortable, itchy, irritating or full of rashes. ilaaria pads are free of plastic to ensure you have a comfortable non-itchy, rash free period.
