Cotton from the USA, spun into yarn in Switzerland

We source premium cotton from trusted partners across the USA, which is then sent to our mill in Switzerland. There the cotton is spun into yarn and woven into raw cotton fabric.

The fabric is prepared for treatment

First the fabric is bleached and sanitised, then the desizing removes the natural wax layer so the treatments can better absorb. Lastly, mercerisation ensures the dye will better absorb and last longer in the final product.

Our patented Freshcore™ technology is applied around the yarn, without creating a coating.

Existing technology - innovative ways

The technologies we use have been utilised in health care and the military for decades. We successfully combined 3 technologies: hydrophobic, antibacterial and wrinkle-free - this hasn't been done before on 100% cotton, that's what differentiates us from other brands.

No compromise on comfort

Our products are treated around the yarn, without creating a coating. This makes the fabric stain and odour repellent and wrinkle free, but still keeps the natural feeling and breathability of the 100% cotton.

The finished fabric goes through multiple steps of performance and quality testing.

Testing the technology

We test the stain repellency with a spray tester and the antibacterial quality under a microscope by checking the amount of bacteria visible. The wrinkle-free treatment is tested in an actual wrinkling machine: the fabric is twisted and turned then released and we measure the amount of wrinkles after each time.

Quality control

We check the product after each step of the manufacturing process, from the cotton fibers to the finished shirt. This way we can guarantee that you receive a product that meets our and your expectations - every time.

Reviews

First test of the business shirt in Brazil — 2 days, no wrinkle and no smell 😀 Love it!

Michael

Excellent fit, perfect color and the fabric exceeded my expectations!

John

Besides the very nice shirts, loved their quick and assertive response when one of my shirts had a minor error (short stitching). I simply received a new one, no questions asked. Tnx for the super service guys!

Jorn

Plain and simple: an awesome product! Ordered two shirts and I'm super happy with them. I'm sweating pretty fast and the grey labfresh shirt has me covered in any situation!

Manuel

Excellent shirts and service, once you go Labfresh you will never want to wear another shirt! Quick delivery, good packaging and durable quality shirts. A must have for boys (and hopefully soon girls) who wear a lot of shirts and t-shirts in their daily life. All types have a great fit and can be worn without washing for days (really!).

Thomas

Excellent quality and stain repellency. Bought both shirt and t-shirt and love them both. Very friendly customer service, when I found out I wasn't "slim shape" after all :-( they exchanged without problems. Can't wait to make a second purchase.

Morten

After my first time in contact with Labfresh: I had a great customer service, a very fast delivery and awesome products (t-shirts and socks). I will definitely make a new order. Thank you!

Maiju

I've ordered from Labfresh multiple times. The quality of the products is outstanding. You notice this already when unpacking, the fabric feels different (better) than you know from cheap T-shirts and shirts. Also, the customer service is excellent. I now wear Labfresh T-shirts every day and have filled most of my closet with them. And the hydrophobic features work as advertised! Amazing products!

David

Best t-shirts I ever bought. I got my first one from their kickstarter campaign, after that i fell in love with the quality and now I have five of them. Replacing all my old t-shirts.

Carlos

Excellent service, amazing products. I have a t-shirt and a shirt, both taking up no smell and seem to stay clean. Just put them in the washing machine, because you get the feeling of 'sometime you have to wash it.' Not because it looked, smelled or felt dirty. Amazing quality and a delight to wear. (Nice and soft).

Sebastiaan

Exceptional customer service, and great products. What else do you want? Pretty much said it all in the title. Maybe its also worth writing that this is the first time I have written a review!

Steven

The people are legends, the clothes are legendary, the service is above and beyond. Thank you so much.
