Iris+Arlo - 2023


Iris + Arlo was born out of personal frustration. For many years, I had been searching for THE brand that fit me for that slightly frustrating time that inevitably comes around every month. Yet, after nearly a decade of watching the market, testing products, researching, I still haven't found anything.


Created by and for menstruating people, Iris + Arlo is a social and environmental impact brand focused on global health, offering healthy, sustainable, and designer products. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Iris + Arlo is more than just a brand; we are a movement towards equity and inclusion.
