All for cleaner underwear
Hey, it's Saint Basics' birthday! Exactly 10 years ago we went to the Chamber of Commerce with an ambitious mission. Not to make a profit, but to supply the world with Cleaner Underwear and to change the textile industry a little from within. That mission is not fulfilled yet. But fortunately, more brands have followed our example. And we're very happy with all the people who have made our brand stronger throughout the years. Thanks for being a Saint!
