With transparency always being so important to us as a brand, we're so grateful to be officially recognised for all for the hard work we do, day in day out.

Did you know that only 3% of underwear is sustainably sourced? Shocking right! That's why we care so much about being as sustainable as we can, and why we're throwing a real party about being B Corp certified. We're sure you know by now, but our knickers are made from trees! And we're also responsible for creating the world's first 100% biodegradable lace knicker, barking mad right? And this couldn't be done without TENCEL™ Modal, an amazing eco-friendly fabric that represents a milestone in the development of environmentally sustainable textiles. Made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms, TENCEL™ are the most sustainable fibres around. A naturally sustainable and soft fibre that starts with the tree and ends with the softest fabric you’ve ever felt!
Founded by women
We believed women shouldn’t have to compromise between comfort, sustainability and style. This is the belief the company is founded on and this is the start of our story, which is only the beginning. With our team made up of 88% of kick-ass women we're proud to give women the opportunity to fill roles which are predominately male lead.
"We are delighted to have received our B Corp status with two IBM’s. As part of our pledge to put people and the planet above profit, we will continue to disrupt an industry where only 2% of underwear is sustainably sourced. A terrible statistic for something we wear everyday."
- Founders Katie & Nicola
Disrupting an industry - B Edit
Our B Edit collection is 100% biodegradable lace knicker and loungewear. This means once you're done with them you can plant it straight in the ground and it will decompose in 180 days. AND it's all made from tree's Barking mad right?
100% recyclable packaging
We try to print as little as possible but when we do, we do it responsibly on 100% recyclable and biodegradable packaging.
Planting a tree for every order
We are extremely proud to be partnered with Ecologi, an amazing initiative, helping to take on the climate crisis in the form of planting trees and reducing our carbon footprint. For every order placed with us, we will plant a mangrove tree in Madagascar. So you can feel even better about restocking your favourite sustainable knickers!
