The use of materials is important

Below we discuss the types of substances. Based on this you can make an informed choice which material suits you best.

Cotton: The classic. It is a very suitable fabric for underwear. It is breathable, soft and user-friendly.

Jersey: It is a soft fabric, lightweight and has a natural stretch. Perfect for men who are constantly on the move.

Silk: This is a classic choice, however, this fabric will soon no longer be offered to the consumer. This is not for nothing. Despite being incredibly light and breathable, this fabric is very fragile. The result: rapid wear and damage during washing.

Mesh: This material is mostly used for sports underwear and ensures better performance. Mesh is light and breathable.
