MATERIALS

/ 100

Materials used to manufacture the products

Tencel®, elastane, recycled polyamide and elastane(laces), gold accessories such as rings, sliders and click closure are made of high-quality, nickel-free metal instead of plastic.

Our top scoring for materials is intended for Recycled/Upcycled/Organic materials. We make one exception with Tencel® as it is a very sustainable alternative to other materials, especially regarding the manufacturing process.
Since Coco Malou mostly uses Tencel®, we gave them the maximum score for materials.


We recommend using a Guppyfriend bag when washing your clothes made of recycled plastic to limit microplastic pollution.

ABOUT

I'm Corinna, the founder: nature lover, creative mind and doer. I have been sharing thoughts about a more sustainable lifestyle on my blog or now Instagram account Pillow & Karma for several years, because I wish that we all walk a little more consciously through this world in order to keep it as beautiful as possible for as long as possible. Fair fashion is my main focus, but in the underwear sector in particular there was still far too little choice. Too simple, too eco, just not comfortable or my taste. So in 2018 I decided to change that. A jump into the cold water.

After many months of research, pattern development, supplier search, sample creation, selection of the production site and a successfully financed crowdfunding campaign on Startnext, the time had finally come in June 2019: Coco Malou was launched on the market! It's been a long way and we still have big plans. You can be curious. :)
