Peau Ethique Organic Undies

"Want to feel more comfortable prancing around in your undies? The French company C.A.BIO produces super cute organic lingerie, underwear, PJs and socks for men, women and children under the brand “Peau Ethique”.

Most of the design work takes place in the French town Saint-Chamond and raw materials for the garments come from Turkey. Cotton is spun, knit and dyed according to the Öeko Tex Standard 100 which prohibits (among other things) the use of heavy metals, known carcinogens, formaldehyde and soda chlorite in the manufacturing process. In addition the company is committed to building long-term relationships with manufacturers and adheres to fair trade labor practices, guaranteeing good working conditions with decent wages, no child labor, and the promotion of handicapped people and women coming from underprivileged areas." ::VIA
