Pansy is an organic cotton underwear company. Born from a need for comfy dreamy ethical undies, their organic cotton is grown and milled domestically and their underwear are designed and sewn locally.


Not so long ago, Laura Schoorl and Rachel Corry were driving from San Francisco to Santa Barbara for dinner with Rachel's parents and got to talking.

They had both been dreaming of the ideal underwear: minimal, sturdy, beautiful, locally-made underwear you can feel good wearing. They spent the next few hours of their drive imagining making the perfect underwear.

It would be made entirely of organically grown natural fibers and sewn in California without a sweatshop in sight. It would be dyed without the use of toxins and made with lots and lots of love.


Pansy underwear is sewn in a factory in San Leandro, CA, a fifteen minute-drive from Laura's apartment.

The organic cotton is grown in Texas and milled in North Carolina. The natural rubber/cotton elastic is made in South Carolina. The underwear is garment dyed with fiber-reactive dyes in a factory in Novato, CA.

We strive for complete transparency and are happy to answer any and every question you have about our production process. Please email us at info@pansy.co.
