I'm on the market to buy reusable menstrual pads. Please recommend your favorite companies to buy from.

I thought this would be already asked, but I only found a similar question that focused on cups and IUDs or that otherwise deal with this as a side issue.
I want to buy reusable menstrual pads. I want to buy a whole set at once without experimenting first, but the sets are expensive and I want your recommendations first.
In addition to other companies, Etsy has a lot of sellers and if you have experience with one you love that will be great.
Specifications: I'd like something all natural and made of all natural fibers (at least for the part touching my skin). I'm not a big fan of anything that requires inserts, because I can't stand hassles (so it looks like luna pads is out). If there is something perfect that is also more affordable, great, because the prices make me squirm. But if there's nothing to do but choke it up for great quality, I will. I don't need recommendations for how to make them, because I won't make them. I want a nice looking, reliable finished product, and I'm not able to make that.
Bonus question: is there really a reasonable chance that using reusable pads would make my cramps go away? Because I have insane, debilitating pain during my periods.
Thanks in advance!
