how it's made
We are More than what we sell.
We are what we leave behind, the mark we make, the values we hold.
We spread our production out with factories across China. Our close working relationships with the people who make our products include weekly and sometimes daily contact, as well as multiple visits per year to the factories themselves. We have chosen to work with majority women-owned or managed facilities, who share our values of taking good care of their workers and reducing their environmental impact.
The majority of our cotton underwear and swimwear are Oeko-tex 100 certified—a highly-regarded international standard for non-toxic fabrics. Additionally, the process that gives our activewear it's quickdry, antibicrobial and moisture-wicking properties uses crab and shrimp shells instead of finishing with synthetic chemicals. Our luxury MicroModal fabric is made out of sustainably harvested and processed Beechwood fibers. And our Signature Prints use a water-based, earth-conscious method, recycling water well above the standards required. We are always looking for the greenest, cleanest method for everything we make.
The hard-working individuals who take care sewing the buttons, trimming the elastics, and placing the labels just so are the reason that every pair of underwear we sell reaches our exacting standards. We only work with factories that are clean, well-lit, provide adequate breaks to their employees, and pay a living wage. Everything we make is ethically produced and sweat-shop free.
