The story so far...
During the past months, we've been working really hard to complete our designs and start the development of our first underwear range.
For each style of underwear, our design process always begins with balancing function and design. We wanted to create underwear that not only looks great, but fits well and feels amazing. After fully understanding what we wanted to create, our designs soon took shape and we were able to send the designs and and technical details for our manufacturing partners to begin work on our first prototypes.
Fabric sourcing was problematic. It's really important to us that our underwear is really comfortable so we tested loads of soft bamboo, viscose and fine nylon fabrics. We found that the samples generally started to 'bobble' when we washed them numerous times and sometimes lost their shape after being stretched. Following discussions with our suppliers and contacts, we discovered Micromodal® - the answer to our problems!
Micromodal® is very silky to the touch and finely knit so that it feel intensely soft against the skin. It's also shrink resistant, and the colors stay sharp and bright. When we washed and tested the swatches, the fabric stayed smooth, silky and would keep its shape after being stretched.
It’s important for us that our underwear is constructed by specialists and are created in a clean and healthy environment with high standards. For this reason we are working with a highly experienced EU underwear manufacturer in Portugal specialising in mens underwear. We have taken advantage of their experience when discussing prototype issues so that we can constantly improve through the development process.
