How we started
Here is a message from our Founder:
My name is Bryony, and I'm the Managing Director of Precious Stars. I first started using reusable menstrual products after becoming very ill with Lyme disease at 15. At that point in time I was virtually bed bound, and using disposable pads and tampons was just miserable! It was at then I discovered cloth pads and menstrual cups, and the rest is history...
Precious Stars started after I found a few videos on Youtube talking about the products. After trying the pads and cups out myself (and realising they were life changing!) I started my own Youtube channel (Precious Stars Pads) which I used to share info on the products, as well as some tips and tricks. It was at this point that I started making cloth pads myself.
Over time my channel grew and today has 100,000+ subscribers. As demand for the reusable pads increased, I've gone from making them on my parents' dining room table (sorry mum and dad), to today having them manufactured in the UK and China, and shipping all over the world. As well as cloth pads, we now stock a range of menstrual cups (moon cups) and other wonderful reusable products and accessories, so that you can find everything you need to start your journey right here.
Who we've worked with
Over the years Bryony has worked with a number of businesses and charities. From helping new menstrual cup companies to perfect their design, to giving advice about period tracker apps, she has a lot of experience working with the products we sell. Here are some of the projects worked on so far:
Helped with the design process and also tested the first prototypes. Also collaborated on a limited edition Lena x Bree cup (Bree is Bryony's nickname).
We've done lot of things with Ruby cup, including producing a video together promoting Ruby cup's Buy one Give one scheme.
City to Sea
Produced a video for City to Sea talking about how the plastic in disposable pads and tampons is damaging to the environment.
Clue period app
Reviewed the app and offered advice about some of the features. This app also allows you to record what products you used on your period and has a menstrual cup option.
Reviewed the Fun Factory's new Fun Cup and offered advice on how to perfect the design.
Tested and advised on the design of the new pads. These products have to be tough and work in hot weather.
