Underwear that's good for you and good for the planet

The material

We chose to use MicroModal produced by industry leaders LENZING™. Lenzing are based in Austria and have created world class environmental practices.

Modal fibres are produced from dissolving pulp in a multi-stage process using sustainably produced wood – and manufactured as environmentally friendly as possible.  

This cellulose from wood is used to produce Lenzing fibres, applying innovative and sustainable processes for eco-conscious manufacturing. At the end of their life cycle, our fibres are fully biodegradable. They decompose back into their original components of CO2 and water, thus preparing the ground on which new plants can grow.  

Closed loop process

Everyone likes a diagram. LENZING™ use a 'closed loop' process to create the MicroModal fibre. This process reduces wastage & protects the environment. Viscose fibre production is a complex process in which primarily the chemicals CS2 and H2S are released into the air as waste gases within the context of the different stages of production. Thanks to Lenzing’s closed loop production, these waste gases do not burden the environment but are recovered, converted and returned to the production process to be used as raw materials.

Our factory & processes

Based in Turkey, our factory is fully GOTS certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified. What does this mean? The Global Organic Textile Standard is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well. Only textile products that contain a minimum of 70% organic fibres can be certified. All chemical inputs such as dyes and auxiliaries used must meet certain environmental and toxicological criteria.

We are well aware of the strain large, 'fast fashion' retailers are putting on the environment and on workers within the industry. Frankly we see it as an absolute requirement as a business to spend a little more and wait a little longer for product that is not only better quality but has been made in conditions that protect people and the planet. We will always be committed to this principle and will continue to make improvements wherever we can

Our Packaging:
Reusable, Recyclable

We have kept our packaging minimal, no extra frills. Our packaging is a simple foil packet which is recyclable. Our packaging is also resealable meaning you can reuse however you wish!

We will always continue to look for the best way to reduce our environmental impact.
