I was doing some research on the net and I found a new cup named Lamazuna. I leave a link to it's site:
http://www.lamazuna.com/category.php?id_category=12
The site it's in French, but I think you will be able to understand everything since they don't say anything besides that they have to different sizes.
When I first saw this new cup I thought it was a Meluna, since they look exactly the same to me. From the pictures I can even see the same flat ball grip the new Melunas have. They don't give any information on the materials, size to choose... I guess they are just beginning their business in the menstrual cups world.
Has anyone tried this new cup? Heard about it? Do you think it could be a copy of the Melunas?

They are actual MeLunas, rebranded in the company's own packaging. And it seems as if they are then being sold for about double the price!

thank you for confirming what was my first idea when i saw the pictures.
well, since they are rebranding they probably have to pay some extra money to Frank to be allowed to do that. might explain part of the higher price.

My thoughts too ! They seem to be primarily a cloth brand, given they sell reusable cotton rounds and cloth pads.

Good to know you've let Frank know about it. It's a shame people would have to pay so much more for the same thing.

I asked Frank, they haven't been given permission so it's in his hands now

Re: Official Statement from MeLuna
Shocking! This French site seems unethical!

Thanks for the statement Frank. I love my MeLuna and appreciate your customer service. I know I can trust your products. :)

Re: Official Statement from MeLuna
It's nice to know that now you are aware of this and you could do whatever is needed against this company.
I can't believe they durst to repack the Meluna cups to sell them about double the prize without having any permission from Meluna.
Shameful!

Hi all :)) !
The situation got clarified, and things seem to have gotten good now ;o)You can read more about it on the French Easycup topic about the 'Lamazuna cup' = http://forum.easycup.fr/topic2147.html

This is from the last message on page 1 (the comment by Laëtitia/Lamazuna) ; we even learn that Frank will make a special cup for this shop hehe, one he won't sell himself. Ooh ooh ..

Oops! sorry.. that was *maybe* there'll be a special cup for Lamazuna ;D--

special color edition for Lamazuna
Yes, this is correct. For us this is daily business. We offer above a certain MOQ also custom colors. It still remains a MeLuna cup :-).
More questions? Please write us to info@meluna.eu.
