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

Super great customer service making sure to be quick to respond to enquirers and fast deliveries. The shirt I purchased fits incredibly comfortably while looking super professional making it my ‘go-to’ shirt for virtual meetings from home.

- Tommy

The product is really great - flawless 5 stars. Can wear a shirt 5 days flat, approved by many sensitive noses.

Labfresh really improved my life a lot. I was always sweating a lot under my armpits. Most of the time i changed my t-shirts 3 times a day, I was really worried about beginning at a office and wanted to do a treatment (for less sweating). With labfresh you don’t have to worry because no matter how much you sweat, it will not smell or be visible. I would recommend the t-shirts, polo’s and shirts to everyone!

- Valentijn

One of the best clothing brands i've shopped at. Not only does Labfresh have a unique product, which can be useful to everyone, the quality of the service is second to none. It combines uniqueness and new ideas, with amazing service and fair price. Theres nothing more you need from a clothing brand. I 100% recommend Labfresh!

- Clement

I bought 3 shirts and 2 pants.The quality is amazing.I felt awesome after wearing them at work for about 10 hours.

- Kostas

The products are great, best in my wardrobe!!! The customer service is the best in the world, every problem is solved in minutes :-)

- Dominik

Best product in my life! I’ve always had trouble with white t-shirts and shirts as I always have to throw them away after a couple of months as the smell is really bad.. Labfresh is perfect solving this problem with their shirts. Less ironing as well makes me very happy and there are a 1000 products I would like them to produce in the future as I probably would be the first one to buy it! Labfresh just brought fashion life to a new level!

- Oscar

The only t-shirts I wear.

- Christian

Labfresh has become my go-to for t shirts and shirts, and I pretty much insta-back their new product launches via Kickstarter. They've come a long way over the past few years, and their customer service is just remarkable - very fast, friendly and helpful. My favourite company in fashion.

- Christopher

I would like to thank you very much! I am very pleased with the products! I got 2 shirts and a white t-shirt, I also received a pair of socks as a gift! The delivery was right on time even though shipping parcels come quite late now due to the pandemic. I was really excited about the shirts since they cover completely sweat stains and from my experience can be worn 2 to 3 times before they need a wash which is great when you're a student ;) All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and will be ordering again!

- Andreas

My new favourite brand! Great customer service and high quality products. I ordered one sweater to test the product but I will surely fill my whole wardrobe with Labfresh! :)

- Daniel

Amazing clothes, fantastic quality, great fits and super fast delivery. I truly don't wear a lot else than my Labfresh gear these days. As good as it gets.
