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.

To maximize longevity and to protect the fabric as well as the environment we recommend washing at 40 degrees and hang drying.
However washing at higher temperatures as well as tumble drying is possible.

Science... Lyocell is sourced from eucalyptus wood 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.
That said... we are convinced that lyocell is the optimal choice for underwear.
Design and craft
We have set out to perfect fine underwear in terms of quality, comfort and sustainability. We are proud to distance ourselves from the fast fashion industry and we believe that less design is better design.
Supporting Sea Shepherd
One percent of our turnover is donated to Sea Shepherd and their project SISO removing illegal and deadly driftnets (fishing nets) from the Mediterranean Sea.
