Ensuring There's No Exploitation in Our Supply Chain

At Y.O.U Underwear, we work with India’s leading sustainable and ethical manufacturer.

We know that the growers, spinners and makers who produce our underwear are paid and treated fairly. In 2019 we even visited the factory for ourselves and met the people who make our underwear!
