WORON is a line of sustainable fashion essentials, based in Copenhagen and founded by sisters Arina and Anya Woron. The aim has always been to create lingerie and essentials with a minimalistic Scandinavian approach that are comfortable without sacrificing feminine shaping, style and sustainability.
WORON is a Peta-approved vegan, cruelty-free and a slow fashion brand, working with the most environmentally sustainable material options available, including organic cotton, modal and recycled polyamide for their swimwear range.
At the core of everything they do is a strong respect for the people they work with, and the environment they work within. For their lingerie and essentials, they mainly work with a family-owned factory in Hungary, which is ÖkoTex certified and until recently it was also GOTS certified (but due to a lack of demand, it was too costly to keep the certification, nevertheless they continue to work under the same clean and strict regulations). At the same time, workers receive a higher wage than the standard minimum wage and offer some additional benefits for working mothers. While they produce their swimwear line in Portugal at a certified and highly skilled factory outside of Porto and their luxurious range of Egyptian organic cotton socks are made in the heart of Italy.
Online orders are packed in a box made of recycled paper, and when you buy an underwear set, you’ll find their signature wash bag enclosed in the box, which is made of 100% organic cotton.
