What Makes Buddha Boxers Different?
We know there are countless other underwear companies, here’s what makes Buddha Boxers different.
Unbelievably Comfortable Bamboo Viscose
Bamboo viscose is the fashion industry’s miracle fabric. Made from bamboo, this fabric gets its legendary comfort by having less tiny barbs in the fabric, making it silky soft. The fabric is also insanely moisture absorbent, wicking moisture away from your skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
Bamboo viscose is incredibly breathable, it allows up to 3x more air circulation than cotton, keeping your twig and berries fresh even if you are sitting in an office all day. The combined air circulation and moisture-wicking reduce odor-causing bacteria growth, and will leave you feeling fresher than you thought possible.
It takes more than 2000 litres of irrigation water to grow enough cotton for 1 pair of underwear. Cotton also consumes vast amounts of fertilizer, pesticides, and other chemicals, like defoliants (Agent Orange is a kind of defoliant).
Unlike cotton, bamboo thrives naturally without irrigation, pesticides, fertilizers, or other chemicals. It is the fastest growing plant in the world, making bamboo farms ecologically efficient and productive without harmful chemicals or increasingly hard to find clean water.
When it comes to underwear, we designed Buddha Boxers to be functional and simple: we focused on the basics. We didn’t want to see giant brand names on our gitch, we got rid of the y-fly in front, and we kept our fabric colors basic. We avoided any extra tags or labels on the underwear; washing instructions are ironed on, and our undies are sewn together using flatlock stitching to keep potential skin irritation to a minimal. We added two vertical strips along the sides of the undies to help minimize crease development and reduce ride-up.
Combining superior fabric and stitching with our minimalist approach gives Buddha Boxers the timeless underwear quality of being there without feeling like they’re there.
Making Sustainability Affordable
We know the need for environmental and social changes are urgent, and we’re proving that sustainability is good for business. Buddha Boxers is different than other underwear brands because we’re constantly innovating and exploring new ways to bring sustainable products to as many people as possible. That means all our packaging is recyclable or compostable, that our products are sustainably produced, and that our prices are competitive to make it easier for more people to join us in our effort to change the world around us. By starting with small changes in our own habits, like buying underwear, we can make a difference.
Our eco-friendly packaging and products have been designed to be more affordable than others that use plastic and synthetic materials. We’re driving down costs while driving up the standard in underwear quality.
