Laid-back lingerie and luxury basics

BOUJO HAKE is laid-back in the best possible way - comfortable, cool and everyday without compromising on the quality or style. We create the most beautifully minimal underwear that is so precisely cut that it enhances the natural silhouette of the wearer. It's about putting the focus back on the individual as we believe that people are their best selves in simple underwear made from the finest, natural materials (mainly organic cotton) with the perfect cut.

Kind cashmere

Cashmere is one of the most sought-after fibres. Both lighter and softer than normal wool, cashmere is significantly more insulating. Despite cashmere now being ubiquitous and often affordable, high quality cashmere still comes at a high cost. But, putting aside monetary value, what is the cost for the environment? Animals are shorn in midwinter for the industry when the demand for cashmere is at its highest, which is precisely the time when they need their fur coats. For many animals this causes stress and for the more vulnerable and weaker animals they simply don’t survive. Recycled cashmere is made from post-consumer yarn. This yarn is sorted with great care, shredded and respun so comes at no cost to the animals....
