100% Biodegradable Stretch Underwear Fabrics: Cotton, Modal, and Tencel
Have you realized that the greatest obstacle for making a sustainable underwear/clothing brand is the Lycra/Elastane?
Lycra and Spandex, are synthetic fibers made from petrochemicals which have negative environmental impacts. Their production requires energy-intensive processes, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. When washed, clothing containing these materials sheds microplastic fibers, adding to water pollution. These non-biodegradable fibers are difficult to recycle and can take a long time to decompose in landfills, contributing to textile waste.Lycra and spandex may also reduce its durability when it is washed. Our company’s mission is to find the ultimate solution for sustainable underwear fabrics.
Common problems of Lycra / Spandex blended fabrics
1.Durability degrades the moment it is washed.
2.Better to be washed below 30 degrees, and better be hand washed.
3.Vulnerable to alkali and acidic solvents, and heat.
4.Uneven dyeing: Lycra fiber does not absorb dye stuff.
Thus, our Bouncy Technology was born.
Our underwear fabrics are not made through rib or any special textured weave. There is no catch, it's a single jersey and it's that simple. Bouncy Technology is 100% pure cotton with “0” elastane which makes it completely biodegradable and comfortable.
