This project was intended as a tool for the apocalypse. It came from a concern that often goes unnoticed when discussing dystopian tools: women’s needs.This somewhat speculative neck piece acts as mode for cleaning menstrual cups and reusable pads and tampons while also doubling as a carrying case for those products.
I was inspired by the look of small hand held washing machines like the one above. I learned that effective hand washers also make use of texture on the inside to ensure adequate washing The next iteration of this product would focus on that. A future mobile lifestyle also means that space is limited. So I also made the washer wearable as a stylish neckpiece making it functional, yet desirable.
Sustainable menstruation products require proper cleaning. So I developed this tool to be used in situations that required you to move quickly from place to place. The strands serve a dual purpose of cleaning handles and necklace strands.
