Dubbed the B Edit, the unmentionables use wood-based Tencel fiber produced by Austria’s Lenzing and elastane sourced from Japan’s Roica.
The underthings are certified compostable by Oeko-Tex and Cradle to Cradle and break down in 180 days if buried in a garden. B Edit can be bought at retailers Selfridges and Bloomingdales.
