About Knickerhood

how it began

Hello! we are Emily & Lena. Knickerhood was born from our joint passion for empowering women.

Both creative individuals, we love the idea of making something special for women here in our home town of Penzance.

how it evolved

For our 'emotionally supportive knickers' line and our 'Classic' knickers we use Tencel which is from sustainably grown trees which we source from Denmark. The gusset is organic cotton sourced from a UK company. Our trim is also from a UK company. Our air miles are small, and our knickers are made here in Penzance, Cornwall in our studio at 2 Union Street.

conscious manufacturing

We are constantly looking for solutions to counteract fast fashion, including an initiative to make pants from your old t-shirts!

All our packaging is completely plastic free.
