WE ARE NAKED.

Naked was founded on one basic desire: to create a new standard for how products worn close to the skin fit, feel and function. We have spent years developing designs and fabrics that feel like nothing else. Like you are wearing nothing at all. So you feel how you want to feel: free, unencumbered and empowered. We know because that’s how we feel when we wear them.

Our Company

Established in 2010 by founder Joel Primus in Vancouver, Naked (OTCQB: NAKDD) has a strong and growing footprint. We are strategically placed in some of the best online and department stores in North America. In 2014, renowned designer and sleepwear pioneer Carole Hochman joined as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Creative Officer and Chairwoman.

Naked is intent on becoming a global lifestyle brand for both women and men. We are hard at work developing amazing women’s intimate apparel, sleepwear and loungewear—the kind of extraordinary products for which Carole Hochman has been admired for years. These women’s collections will be introduced in 2015. Meanwhile, we are committed to constantly optimizing and innovating our men’s collections. In the future, we see Naked moving into other apparel and product categories that exemplify the mission of our brand, such as activewear, swimwear, sportswear and beyond.

“What gets me excited to go to work every day is knowing that the sale of our products contributes to the empowerment and freedom of people through education-based charities. I also love knowing that when someone wears Naked, they feel the difference and it gives them an edge to take on their day whatever it holds.”

“My favorite Naked underwear is our Microfiber Boxer Brief. I’ve been working out in them, traveling in them and wearing them under suits for over five years now. No matter what I do or where I go they function, feel and look good.”
