The idea for ØESTE was born in Zürich while slowly giving up on traditional big logo low performance underwear.

We wanted to create the most comfortable underwear possible while combining science with our passion for nature.

Science... Lyocell is sourced from eucalyptus trees and is refined in a closed-loop system where 99% of the solvent is recycled.

The solvent used to produce lyocell is non-toxic. This unlike other modern fabrics, such as bamboo, modal and viscose that require toxic solvents.

Lyocell is also a more durable weave with superior heat management abilities compared to the mentioned alternatives.

The fabric requires no pesticides and much less water to be produced compared to cotton. This while providing a softer, moisture wicking, cooling and more durable weave with less pilling.

As you probably guessed... we are convinced that lyocell is the optimal choice for underwear.
