The process of making micromodal for a pair of Debriefs underwear

Naturally sourced and sustainable fabric

Mi·​cro·mod·​al

It sounds synthetic, but it's far from it!

Our MicroModal is produced from rejuvenated beechwood trees, which are grown without pesticides or harmful chemicals.

It requires 20x less water than a standard pair of cotton underwear to produce a pair of Debriefs. And it's a closed-loop process.
