Recognised as TOP MARKE for women’s underwear
The basis of the study was an online survey of 144 buyers for specialist underwear retailers and the broader retail industry in Germany. Relevant categories included collection expertise, style, quality & finish, and retail partnership.
In 2019, Mey published a CSR report for the first time. Sustainability and responsible consumption are the issue of our time and much more than just a fleeting trend. They are increasingly valued by consumers. We produce a large share of our products in our own factories in Germany, Portugal and Hungary.
This means that our products are free from prohibited or regulated substances and chemicals that are harmful to health. In addition, the pH value is tested for skin-friendliness and the items are tested to ensure they are colour-fast.
