Banana Boxers – was launched in 2010 when we identified a gap in the underwear market.

Our aim is simple: to provide a range of comfortable, vibrant, fun and uniquely printed boxer shorts, that don’t compromise on quality or style, at an accessible price point. Our traditional style, colourful boxers offer enough choice to tantalise both the seemingly straight-laced as well as the exquisitely eccentric.

Our boxers are made from 100% cotton poplin, a natural breathable material which, with the carefully considered shape of the boxer, makes them extremely comfortable.  We design the prints ourselves in Notting Hill, they are then sent to our wonderful family run factory in India, who we have partnered with over the past fourteen years on the production and they are shipped to you from our HQ in Wiltshire.

The business has grown organically since our inception in 2010, this is due to our loyal customers returning time and time again!

We promise quality, comfort and originality.

Sustainability

Banana Boxers prioritises quality over quantity, embodying a slower, more mindful philosophy that rejects the fast-fashion cycle. Our commitment to sustainability starts with our materials, we print our own fabric using sustainably sourced cotton, a biodegradable, natural fibre.

Unlike many brands, we don’t operate on a seasonal basis, instead we print our fabric in quantities we know we can sell, resulting in no dead stock over our 14 years in business. This approach not only reduces waste but also allows us to focus on crafting boxers that are exceptionally durable, designed to last for years, rather than being discarded after a few wears.

Our sustainability efforts extend to our packaging as well, we’re constantly striving to minimize our packaging footprint. We use recycled and recyclable materials for our packaging and biodegradable postage bags made from sugarcane.

We encourage responsible care of our products by advising customers to wash our boxers at 30 degrees, prolonging their lifespan and reducing environmental impact.

 

Ethical Practices

As a female-founded brand, we are deeply committed to diversity within the business and ethical practices throughout our supply chain. For over 14 years, we’ve maintained partnerships with our suppliers in New Delhi, ensuring that our production adheres to the highest ethical standards.

Our Indian suppliers comply with all government regulations and hold certifications such as SEDEX. They prioritise the well-being of their employees, providing benefits such as monthly insurance, lenient working hours—especially for women—personal loans, and opportunities for professional and personal development.

We take pride in the diversity of our workforce, with many women employed across various departments, and some departments being exclusively female. Our commitment to ethical practices goes beyond compliance; it reflects our values and dedication to creating a positive impact on the lives of our employees and the communities we serve.
