Founded in Biarritz in 2014 by creative minds Marie Guyot and Emmanuel Mouazan, Hemen is an underwear brand that draws daily inspiration from the raw elegance of the Basque Country and skillfully mixes vintage lines, flawless comfort and sustainability.
Hemen means “here” in Basque. When Hemen launched in 2014, the commitment was to offer clothes that are both artisan-made and sustainable, by delivering a range of quality, organic cotton underwear that is made locally. Based on the Basque Coast for over 20 years and in Biarritz since 2011, Hemen draw inspiration from the greatness of the nature that surrounds them. The Basque Country is a place filled with the might of the elements, where wild storms and gentle living meet, and where its colour palette constantly changes from humid greens to iodized blues, and from luminous grays to earthy reds.
