OUR COMMITMENT TO THE WORLD

What does it mean to be sustainable? At Understatement, it’s not just about responsible sourcing of sustainable materials and manufacturers that tick the boxes of social compliance. It’s also about creating durable, long-lasting items that are not thrown into landfills after being worn for one season. It’s about making underwear that lasts, with partners that share our values and goals at every step of the process.

It’s about our commitment to the comfort and welfare of the women we serve. Woman to woman, Understatement to you.

FABRICS

We invest time and effort searching for the best, most climate-conscious, and durable fabrics out there. We swap out the raw materials in our trims and fabrics for more sustainable options, and all our materials are free from harmful substances.

The polyamide used in our garments has been replaced with premium Econyl fiber, turning plastic ocean waste like fishing nets and PET bottles into sustainable textiles.

Our loungewear collection uses modal, which is more environmentally friendly than other fabric alternatives, and our swimwear collection is 100% made of recycled materials. We are constantly in search of new fabrics and technologies that are both good for our planet, and good for you.

PRODUCTION & SUPPLIERS

The production of our undergarments takes place in Europe. Our woman-centric office is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. We are constantly searching for contractors who prioritize the use of recycled and organic materials, without compromising on durability, design, or innovation. Our partners use renewable energy sources and prioritize having green operations management.

PACKAGING

In our underwear we focus on the essentials and got rid of all the rest - we did the same to our packaging. We removed all plastic, and our paper bags and tags are made of 100% recycled and compostable material. And yes, we have also stopped sending return labels with your orders. Kind of annoying, we know, but it helps save a lot of paper!
