It feels good to be a Saint!

About 10 years ago, we embarked on a mission for 'cleaner underwear'. Not to make a profit, but to supply you with Feelgood basics that you can truly love. And in the meantime, change the textile industry a little bit from within.

Now we make the softest basics from natural materials like eucalyptus. Great fit, anti-smell, no scratchy labels. About 95% more environmentally friendly than common products. And 100% free from pesticides, sweatshops, child labour and unfair trade. We believe they’re the most feelgood basics you’ll ever wear. In fact, we guarantee it. Don’t feel good about our basics? You’ll get your money back!

So be a Saint too!. Start your day with a good feeling about who you are, what you look like and the choices you make. And help us spread that feeling. Together we can make the world a nicer place ... from the bottom-up!

Saint Basics. On a mission voor feelgood.

  • There’s a secret ingredient that makes our products special. With this ingredient, we design a product you can love, like and share. We’ll tell you what it is at the end of this journey.

  • Our journey starts at the cotton fields at the Aegean Sea. The organic cotton there has a long fibre. And the longer the fibre, the softer the fabric!

    go to the cotton fields

  • Another journey starts in the forests near Ermelo … in South Africa. This is where the trees for our Eucalyptus products are grown.

    explore the forests

  • In Austria, the wood pulp from these trees is turned into fibres that are super soft on your skin and even softer on the environment. The whole process is zero-waste and received an EU sustainability award.

    Visit Austria

  • All fibres, both cotton and eucalyptus, go to our clean, fair and social production chain in Portugal. The first stop is a a spinning mill, where the fibres are turned into the high quality yarns for our fabric.

    see the spinning

  • These yarns are knitted into very soft fabrics. They are coloured and printed with natural, non-toxic dyes.

    go to the fabric house

  • Our garments are made with love by skilled workers in Portugal. No sweatshops or child labour of course!

    visit the factory

  • Our products are transported by road from Portugal to our warehouse in Alphen a/d Rijn, the Netherlands. By producing within the EU, we choose the shortest way possible.

  • We sell directly online. No shops or middle-men! With the money we save, we support charity and give back to our clients and workers.

  • Well … that’s you! Be a Saint, join our community and give us your opinions and inspiration! We’ll make a product you can really love. And together we will change the world ... from the bottom-up!
