|Sanitary napkins have an important place in women's history and in the history of technology. 19th Century research into disposable sanitary napkins marked the humble beginnings of a new era of gynecological sanitary. Disposable sanitary napkins started to be available in the markets only around the year 1895. Its production is a form of porous item that has the capability of absorbing the flow. It comes under Nonwoven fabrics which are sub-categorized under technical textile. Technical textiles are the textile materials which are primarily used for their technical performance and functional properties rather than their aesthetic or decorative characteristics. The 1st sanitary napkins were in the form of a cotton wool or similar stringy rectangular structure, sheathed with an absorbent liner. They are made from a number of types of fabric — most often cotton flannel, or hemp (which is highly absorbent and not as bulky as cotton) which results in high degree of softness and loosely fitted fibers. They are highly absorbent and are made of clean fibres that do not have an unpleasant odour when wet or dry. It posses sufficient wet strength treated with wetting agents or wet strength imparting resins such as urea formaldehyde or Melamine resins. Generally absorption paper, waterproof paper crushed pulp, and non-woven cloth or rayon paper is used as raw material. Absorbency is also probably the most important quality of sanitary napkins. That is why it is basically used for drying or absorbing purpose. This basic and advantageous property of sanitary napkin also helps reducing discomfort. It is important that such sanitary napkins be breathable. Since, it is a vital characteristic for comfort and health. Heat and moisture retention create an environment that favors bacterial development.

That is why it is so important for sanitary napkins to be breathable.
