As noted by owner, Paul Schwarz, the HOCOSA line is dedicated to organic fibers. The organic underwear from HOCOSA of Switzerland is BEST– and/or GOTS-certified by IMO-Switzerland. We are a member of IVN-Germany (International Association Natural Textile Industry) and since 2001 member of the Demeter Association, Switzerland.

The products currently carry Europe’s coveted Kb-T Certification for Organic Textiles. Building on over 25 years of experience in the field, we feel particularly qualified to offer our services and products to everyone with a serious interest in promoting the use of organic- textiles. Our products are manufactured in Bedano, near Lugano, Switzerland, according to the strictest environmental requirements and can therefore be sold as “Swiss Made”.


Spoil your skin with precious Hocosa long underwear made of pure new wool in organic quality. This extraordinary fine merino virgin wool derives from animals that are kept in their natural environment, it is shorn by hand and it is free from pesticides. This wool is absolutely natural, particularly soft and cosily warm. Wool has the natural ability to clean itself by being aired. When necessary, we recommend hand wash with Lanolin replenishing soap at 30° C.


The perfect combination of many benefits of organic pure new wool and the extraordinary characteristics of precious silk. Fine merino wool is absorbent and cosily warm, silk is smooth and comfortable to wear. Together they create a temperature balance and support the natural capacity of skin.
