Are you a woman who spends time in the outdoors often? Have you ever heard of a pee cloth or tried one? There’s a chance you may have some assumptions — but you’ve probably never tried a Kula Cloth, which is actually everything you’ve ever wanted in a nature bathroom routine that you didn’t think could exist. It’s a reusable, sustainable toilet paper alternative for hikers, campers, and anyone who squats to pee outside. This little piece of thoughtfully designed fabric will be the next piece of gear your going to wish you’d always had.
If your an avid outdoors-woman like I am — taking care to leave no trace is probably really important to you. Having to pack out toilet paper for a day hike is fine but when you start going on longer trips it really begins to carry some weight, figuritvely and literally. So when I came across this ingenious invention that clips to your pack and looks great doing so, I couldn’t have been more excited to spread the word wide and far. This is something every woman needs on her pack. It may be a new concept to the outdoor industry now, but soon it will be a staple piece of gear for many.
When it comes to hygiene products specifically we should take extra consideration and care when choosing and using them in the wild. Most products are of the disposable nature and rarely considered how they might impact the environment. Which is another reason why my newest favorite piece of gear in this department is my Kula Cloth it’s the greenest way to go pee in the outdoors and still feel clean, dry and good about your impact on the land.
Kula Cloth is the first of its kind – an intentionally (and obsessively) designed reusable antimicrobial pee cloth! Its made with highly advanced textiles that are SPECIFICALLY designed for hygiene, the fabric is antimicrobial and resistant to odors.Anastasia Allison — Creator of Kula Cloth
If you already use your own version of a pee-cloth I guarentee you will love this product. So many people already use the Kula Cloth because, unlike a bandana or any other cloth you may have tried, the Kula Cloth is specifically designed to be used as a pee cloth. It is made from advanced silver-infused textiles that are purposely intended to be in contact with the human body. In fact, only one layer of the silver absorbent fabric replaces 3 layers of microfiber terry and 6 of french terry — Impressive! and I have to say it is so much nicer than any top of the line toilet paper; it feels like luxury.
To knock out a few more concerns that even I had before I tried it for myself. The Kula doesn’t show stains or retain scents but when it is time to clean — it is super easy to care for. Just throw it in the wash or by hand, use biodegradable soap if washing outdoors then hang to dry. It dries super fast so you can even wash it while your out on an extended backpacking trip. Even for the descreet the Kula snaps closed to only show a variety of cute waterproof patterns, surely to only add to your trail style as well as keep your hands dry. This piece of gear will for sure be a game changer for you as it has been for me and so many other women who are already part of the Kula revolution.
The cloths feature one-of-a-kind prints by mountain artists like Nikki Frumkin and Claire Giordano, whose art has been featured by major retailers like REI and in magazines like Alpinist. Other thoughtful features include the reflective stitching, to ensure you can always find your Kula even in the darkest forest, and a snap closure loop to easily hang from your bag.
The idea of the Kula Cloth is to reduce our dependency on disposable products (like TP!). So if you’re interested in making an effort to have less of an impact on the environment. Check out Kula cloth for even more details or snag one of your own to add to your sustainable hygiene kit.

I have been using my Kula since the very beginning (prototype phase) and have loved my experience and being a part of the Kula community since that very first sustainable pee, so I am happily one of Kula’s Ambassadors.
