Custom Soft Packers
These hand-sewn, nontoxic, body- and earth-friendly packers** are designed and made by a genderqueer/trans textile artist (surprise, it's me, D./Topaz!) who was sick and tired of wearing mass-produced packers made of heavy, chafing silicone or don't-want-that-in-my-pants plastics and phthalates.
These packers are each unique, but all are made with care from cotton fabric leftover from my work as a textile artist, and stuffed with scrap thread and tiny fabric scraps to add a bit of weight while still retaining comfort. The back sections are made of soft cotton flannel, and the top sections are mostly quilting cotton, though occasionally I'll use cotton corduroy or soft cotton canvas.
Over the last two years, I have made many of these in a range of shapes, sizes, and color combinations, and now I'm ready to make the custom packer of your dreams! Click on the images to see some of the packers I've made in the past. I can't guarantee availability of particular fabrics you see in the photos.
Aspects you can customize on a Basic Soft Packer:
*colors, patterns, textures
And if you order a Deluxe Soft Packer, you can:
*add embroidery, monogramming, etc.
*add decorative elements like beading, ribbons, fringe, googly eyes...whatever your wild heart desires!
*alter the overall shape or design of your packer
*have another idea? just ask!
Both the Basic and Deluxe Soft Packers are available as a gift certificate for your favorite packing human. You will receive the Gift Certificate by email as a PDF, which you can forward to the recipient or print out.
After you place your order, I will email you an info sheet and questionnaire to fill out so I can learn about your preferences. For those who buy a Deluxe, you will have the option to meet with me in a brief video call to discuss your hopes and dreams, look at fabrics in my studio, and ask questions.
Care instructions: 100% cotton fabric exterior, mixed-material textile interior (scrap thread and fabric). Hand wash in cold water with mild soap and lay out on a towel to dry or hang on a line. I haven't yet tried washing these in a washing machine or dryer, so I recommend hand washing and drying these for best results.
**What's a packer, you say? For those who aren't familiar, a packer is an object designed to be work in your pants to create the appearance of a bulge. Trans, genderqueer, nonbinary, and gender-expansive people may be interested in packing (occasionally or regularly, or anything in between), but anyone can wear a packer for any reason they choose!
