Production in our hometown allows us to get involved in every step of the process. This also has the added benefit of developing a strong working relationship and friendship with the women in the workshop. Regular visits to the workshop gives us the quality time needed to verify firsthand that all workers are treated with dignity, are employed under fair working conditions, and ensuring there are no risks to their health.
We are deeply inspired by Fashion Revolution, the organization that leads the largest activist movement in fashion and its powerful address to many brands, #Whomademyclothes?
We wish to join this Revolution, to help give a better answer to this far-reaching question. This paradigm shift towards a circular economy must be led by companies, therefore, all of our actions are transparent and traceable.

“… Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment. Everyone, without any discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work. Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection…”

We put a lot of energy and resources into researching the best sustainable materials for our lingerie. Our mission is to work hand in hand with companies that share the same ethical values and commitment to shift towards a more humane economy.
LACE: Recycled polyamide
We know that the recycling of fabrics, sometimes, implies a greater impact on our environment due to the transformation process that they entail. For this reason, we investigated all our options and opted for a recycled polyamide that guarantees sustainability certification.
TENCEL: Fabric made from the pulp of the Eucalyptus
Tencel Lyocell is an artificial fiber that comes from the cellulose of eucalyptus wood grown for this purpose and sustainably managed according to the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) standard.
Its transformation to fiber is carried out with a non-toxic organic solvent through a closed-circuit production process that allows recovery and reuse of almost 100% of the material, meaning a greater efficiency in energy resources and a lower environmental impact.
Our suppliers of elastics, straps and trimmings sit just outside of Barcelona, which allows us to reduce the carbon footprint derived from transport. All of them comply with the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certiﬁcation.
However, we continue our research for sustainable components to reach our goal of making underwear entirely with sustainable materials.
At UMA Intimates, we are committed to keep working to source and replace less-sustainable materials.
Give a second life.
This packaging is made with a unique sustainable material that simulates leather made of cellulose and latex fibers. When is immersed in hot water, softens and transforms into vegan leather.
You are part of this revolution, so with your imagination and intuition you can give a second life to your packaging by turning it into a vegan leather bag and reuse over and over again.
You will receive your lingerie in a sensory packaging that is infused with Ylang Ylang essential oil, a revitalizing and energizing flower whose scent resurfaces when opened, infusing the soft and delicate lingerie fabrics, so soft due to its delicate fabrics that awaken the touch.
When the bag is opened, you will find the inscription on the inside flap “Loving myself is revolutionary”, as a reminder that every revolution begins within us.
You will find a card, beautifully illustrated with a symbol to honor the body of women and our connection to mother nature. As a gift, we include a relaxing feminine infusion, completing with the taste a journey experience through the senses.
Give the tags a second life!
You will find a QR code on them, which will take you to a video (each time it will be a different video), where we want to inspire you by telling you how each woman experiences her sensuality in a unique and individual way.
Do your part!
If from today, you make the choice that your consumption can change how the economy works; suddenly having information about what are the companies practices is very important.
If we believed this is true:
Could we get companies to make a transition towards sustainability, towards a circular economy?
We think so.
This is our opportunity to make changes.
Our consumption is one way of expressing ourselves, of communicating our values and our ideologies.
Our consumption decisions mean much more than we might believe, and that power instills in us greater individual responsibility!
“Our consumption has great impact and we have an individual responsibility.”
Thank you for consuming ethical, local or re-purposed fashion. Thank you for taking care of your lingerie to make it last longer. Thank you for being interested in asking how your lingerie has been made. Thank you for mending your clothes and for your many other ways of loving our planet.
When you give us your thoughts and ideas on how we can improve, when you tell us what you think is missing, when you send us words of encouragement, you build us up and give us strength. We have created this form for you to help us co·create UMA.
Thank you so much!
We have created a space in our Blog, where we want to share and talk with you about issues that matter and make useful information available to you, information applicable in your day-to-day life.

Our visions help to nourish our souls.
Nowadays social media is the most popular way to express one self.
The time we spend on it, can conquer or change our concepts, shape our way of thinking, therefore has impact in our way of behaving.
So in that way, social media can be our tool to express our revolution.
At UMA we want to create content that make us feel represented and identified.
We have created this space, where you can participate in the creation of the content that we publish.
Let’s co·create together.
Be part of the photography and video sessions in a friendly and kind environment.
