“When I learned that hemp is the world’s most sustainable fabric, I knew I wanted to have a clothing line implementing this material. When I learned about all of the amazing benefits hemp has as a fabric like being super breathable, naturally anti-bacterial and comfortable, I quickly realised the best application for hemp fabric would be underwear.” – Shakib Nassiri, Owner of WAMA Underwear.

WAMA Underwear is a sustainable intimates company based in the United States using hemp to ethically produce women’s and men’s underwear. WAMA Underwear is driven to not only provide a high quality, functional and comfortable product, but also to make a lasting positive impact on an industry that is well overdue for a change.

Ethical and Transparent Production

“Transparency is super important to our brand, which is why I went to the biggest hemp yarn supplier in Shanxi, China and visited Qingdao, China as well to visit with hemp fabric suppliers,” Shakib says of the factories that produce the WAMA hemp underwear. “While I was able to directly see how the hemp in Chinese manufacturing is handled, I also saw first hand that ethical processes were instilled in the factories. In addition, WAMA has a permanent team member based in China to oversee everything. By ensuring our presence overseas, our company can audit our factories easier and have better communication with our partners.”

WAMA Underwear believes in the power of ethical and transparent production, which is why they’re completely open about their decision to manufacture in China. As the world leader in hemp textiles, China is the choice for many sustainable brands including Patagonia and Stella McCartney due to the high quality of hemp produced there. Additionally, most of the crops are grown on small family-run organic farms, and WAMA Underwear has built strong and transparent relationships with their suppliers.

What’s more is that all of WAMA Underwear’s suppliers adhere to the Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes: safe and healthy working conditions; no harassment, abuse or discrimination; ethical business behaviour; no forced or underage labor; decent working hours; protection of the environment; and payment of fair wages.

Organic Hemp Fabric and Sustainable Processes

As we were studying hemp textiles we learned that hemp fabric has many benefits like being naturally antibacterial, super soft and breathable. Hemp also uses less water to grow than any other conventional crop, it enriches the soil it was grown on and is such an incredibly strong fibre. We quickly realised that the best application for hemp fabric would be hemp underwear and that’s how WAMA was born.

All of the WAMA Underwear products, from the women’s bralettes to the men’s briefs, are made from a sustainable and organic hemp fabric that is free from pesticides, herbicides and other harmful chemicals. As a fabric, hemp is naturally antibacterial with anti-odour properties; is comfortable, breathable and gets softer with every wash; and is one of the world’s most sustainable materials. In fact, WAMA Underwear’s hemp and organic cotton fabrics use only about 3% the water conventional cotton uses.

WAMA Underwear is also a Green America Certified Business and a PETA-Approved Vegan brand, and their eco-friendly hemp fabric is dyed in an OEKO-TEX certified facility, and the packaging they send their hemp undies and bralettes in includes custom boxes made from 100% recycled materials, recycled poly mailers and naturally biodegradable tissue paper

Now, the team at WAMA Underwear is on a mission to pioneer the hemp industry by making the best organic hemp undies in the world, as well as to constantly improve their fit, function and design. They also have a rigorous and lengthy design process to ensure people fall in love with hemp on their first wear. 

We sure did.
