Even articles with little fabric can sometimes use too much resource

We love:

  • The complex construction of a beautifully created intimate article…
  • …with lots of stretch and comfort
  • Nude tones that co-ordinate with our skin

We don’t love:

  • Nude & beige tones with high stretch are the most difficult colors to repeat in production…
  • ...they often need shade correction that uses more water & energy and reduces the manufacturers productivity
  • Intimate wear is constructed of multiple deniers….
  • …creating difficulties to dye at the same time
