The fabric of our brief
The briefs from Le Slip Francais are made out of cotton – and as you probably know, there are no cotton fields in France. THE COLLECTION
The cotton thread of which our products are made out of then, arrives in our workshops in big reels. From that point on, all steps of the production, from the knitting until the packaging is made in France.
The most part of the cotton we are using is coming from India, Egypt and the United-States. They are OEKO-TEX® certified, which means that they were running through several tests in order to match the standard 100 of OEKO-TEX®. This guarantees that our cotton is free from products that are toxic for the body and the environment.
Today, in order to continue to change the world a bit more everyday, we are searching ways to innovate the textile production, mainly by finding fabric that maybe one day will replace cotton. We are already now trying out different methods, for example using more linen – where France is the major producer and where the production needs way less water. We consider as well nettles. To our own surprise,it is really possible to produce briefs that are mainly made out of nettles. And we promise – they don’t hurt !
