You have chosen the following basics as your favourites. But which of these treasured basics is your personal favourite?


Our underwear meets the highest standards of sustainability: Each of our products is a decision for long-lasting quality and against the throw-away mindset. For fair and transparent manufacturing and production of raw materials. For respect for human beings, animals and nature. For an unforgettably good feeling, and not just on your skin. These are the things we have stood for since 1941 – and will stand for in future, too.

Our certifications

Cradle to Cradle Certified®

Cradle to Cradle Certified® confirms that the products certified with the international product standard are circular. In this way, raw materials are used rather than wasted wherever possible and are demonstrably free from toxic substances. If Cradle to Cradle Certified® products have reached the end of their life, they can be returned to CALIDA for recycling and reintroduction into the cycle or returned to a CALIDA shop.


In 2016, CALIDA was the first underwear brand in the world to introduce the MADE IN GREEN by OEKO-TEX® label. The product label is not only awarded according to strict social and ecological criteria, but also states that the textiles in question have been tested for harmful substances. Articles bearing the label can be transparently traced using a unique product ID or QR code.


ECONYL® is a particularly smooth, soft and skin-caressing material made completely of recycled nylon that was produced from old fishing nets, rugs and scraps of material. Or from itself: That’s because ECONYL® can be recycled countless times within the context of a circular economy. The quality of ECONYL® is just as good as the quality of traditionally produced nylon, but infinitely better for the environment.


Feminine at its finest, cuddlingly soft and detail driven, but still totally uncomplicated and robust enough for everyday use. Our basics with lace combine the best of both worlds.


You may need to suddenly restock your underwear drawer or want to add to your supplies for a rainy day: There are all sorts of reasons for purchasing our practical basics multipacks. And the best are included several times.
