Perfect Fit is a menstrual health start-up based in Bali, Indonesia who believes that everyone deserves access to safe, comfortable and affordable menstrual products and education.
We began as a social project in East Nusa Tenggara Province in 2018 and now paving our way to be a leading company for providing the best and the most sustainable period solutions.
Our mission is breaking menstrual taboos, empowering women to be the best version of themselves, and protecting our environment from climate change.
Hey, this is Tungga Dewi and Riesa Putri (Icha), Co-Founders of Perfect Fit. We used to keep our silence when talking about discomfort of our period from menstrual health products.
Until we learned that 95% of women in Indonesia have to use disposable pads due to limited options. Disposable pad is bulky, contains lots of chlorine that cause irritation, and takes 500 years to degrade on Earth. How come not many options for women?
Because menstruation is taboos, so not many innovative products created. That’s why we are here with you to bring innovation & create social change on menstrual health to empower more women and girls.
On February 2022, Perfect Fit signed the commitment to implement the Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) by UN Global Compact and UN Women to our business.
We won a grant from Grand Challenges Canada to do a women's menstrual health project in Flores.
The idea of Perfect Fit started and we began to develop reusable pads.
With the help of local Women in Flores, we eveloped three prototypes that were then tested with local communities. Started to do market testing and sold 4,000 pads.
We officially established Perfect Fit in Labuan Bajo! We produced 20.000 reusable menstrual pads with 1 superwomen from Flores. Most of our tailors are gender-based violence survivors and people with disability from low-income backgrounds.
We decided to expand Perfect Fit as a menstrual health start-up with leak-proof underwear made in indonesia Product development & testing began. Perfect Fit won SEED Awards by UN Environment Program for our efforts in improving menstrual health in indonesia
Launched the first leak-proof period underwear in Indonesia using OEKE-Tex Certified materials that are toxic (PFAS) free. Since then we have
continued our efforts in making sustainable menstrual products
education accessible to everyone.
HIDDEN COST BEHIND OUR PERIOD
On average, a woman will use over 11,000 disposable period products in their lifetime. Imagine to multiply this by 800 million of menstruating women globally.
Conventional pads contain harmful chemical for us and create massive waste on our landfill and ocean.
THE PERFECT FIT
Perfect Fit products built to last for years. They are reusable for 100x times and produced locally in Indonesia. This will cut a significant environmental footprint compared to conventional pads, as well as supporting the local economy through job creation.
SOCIAL IMPACT ON PERIOD POVERTY
We believe that menstrual equity is critical to empower women and girls When someone can not manage their period properly, it can influence their capabilities to function properly at work and/or schools.
That’s why we build Perfect Fit to have an inclusive business model by giving back to the community. They way we do it is by donating one reusable pad and providing menstrual health education for every purchase of period underwear sold.
