About materials

Sourcing the best local materials is the core of our sustainable network, that’s exactly how we started out in 2016. Underwear is the closest thing your wear, so we owe your skin the best, down to the smallest details, starting with the fabrics. They tick all our requirements boxes: super soft, daily comfort, high durability, eco-friendly certification, geographical proximity.

For us, socially conscious fashion means commiting to transparency, so let’s go!

Bi-directional stretch ensures this fabric moves with you effortlessly, retaining its shape without deformation.
Breathable and lightweight, it delicately hugs the skin, providing seamless wear even under fitted clothing, thanks to the raw edge finish of the panties.

This highly technical material has undergone numerous quality tests, ensuring durability; it will never pill or lose its shape over time. Its structure offers unparalleled quick-drying properties, making it highly practical as we strongly advise against tumble drying.
We procure it in a "ready to print" state (in natural/ecru color) and digitally print it just a few kilometers away at our partner printer's facility. It's worth noting that this material is designed to withstand UV exposure, chlorine, and salt.
So feel free to repurpose your lingerie as swimwear for an impromptu dip. Freedom at its finest!

STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a global independent certification system that ensures our fabrics are safe for human use, free of any toxic or allergic substances (chemicals or dyes). You can wear our lingerie, swimwear or homewear immediately, without washing them.

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a European Regulation that provides a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.

GRS (Global Recycle Standard) is an international voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product (your bra for instance). It provides brands with a tool to establish more transparency in the full supply chain (traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling).

GOTS defines world-wide recognised requirements for organic textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials (traceability of the cotton), through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labeling. It provides a credible assurance to the end consumer, as all certified products meet the exact same stringent standards. More specifically, it limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of organic textiles.
