About the Company
In 2017 Molke embarked on their mission to manufacture and supply positive pants and confidence-boosting bras to women all over the world, using ethically produced materials. Our underwear is designed to make women feel empowered, strong and free from the constraints that come with the stereotypical and limiting underwear that is available on the high street.
The ambition to bring comfort, power and joy to women of all ages and all body types led to the establishment of Molke. Our underwear is designed and created here in Scotland on our own premises, and with fair pay and excellent working conditions for our staff. We pride ourselves on standing against fast fashion and are accredited Living Wage employers. We believe fast fashion is detrimental to the environment, encourages unfair working conditions and produces poor quality clothes. We strive to create a positive impact on people and the environment, so ethics are at the heart of our brand.”
Molke has enjoyed tremendous growth in the last 2 years, complemented by a win at Scottish EDGE Round 14 in June 2019.
