Meeting Their Match: BRANWYN Performance Innerwear Partners with Darby Communications

Sustainable performance innerwear brand partners with PR & digital marketing agency


Portland, OR – Oct. 29, 2020 – BRANWYN, the groundbreaking sustainable performance innerwear brand made by women for women, is thrilled to announce its partnership with Darby Communications, a boutique PR & digital marketing agency out of Asheville, NC. As BRANWYN’s PR agency of record, Darby Communications will elevate the burgeoning brand’s presence in the outdoor, fitness, and active lifestyle industries, popularizing its line of Merino wool-based undergarments.

When BRANWYN’s designer set out to find a pair of high quality basic underwear made of natural fabrics, she came up short. Every pair was selling either sex, ruffles, or polyester—rather than performance, comfort, or fit. So she decided to design her own. Today, BRANWYN’s line of performance bralettes and underwear is breathable, moisture-wicking, and odor-resistant—for innerwear designed with active women in mind. And the best part? Each pair is made using natural, OEKO-TEX Standard 100- and REACH-certified Merino wool—for a product that keeps your skin healthy and happy. And because Merino wool fibers are up to 10x finer than a strand of human hair, BRANWYN’s undies are softer than your favorite worn-in t-shirt—for all-day comfort you won’t want to take off.

“Here at Darby, we pride ourselves in working with brands that know how to balance planet and profit,” says Darby Communications Founder Coral Darby. “Even in its earliest stages, BRANWYN has shown that they are a true triple threat: combining performance, comfort, and sustainability for a product that’s best-in-class in more way than one.”

Darby Communications, which has a proven track record of success among the outdoor, fitness, and active lifestyle industries, is aptly positioned to amplify the brand’s presence in these critical spaces. Darby will bolster BRANWYN’s line of Merino wool-based undergarments through targeted public relations efforts designed to garner third-party validation, build backlinks, and drive sales.

“At its core BRANWYN is about female empowerment. In searching for a PR agency, it was crucial to us that we found a partner with an equally strong female presence,” says Sarah Palmer, BRANWYN’s co-founder and creative director. “As a female-founded and female-led agency, Darby understands the importance, and challenges, of supporting active women in all their pursuits.”

In addition to empowering active women through their revolutionary innerwear, BRANWYN takes their mission a step further through their giveback program. Every quarter, BRANWYN partners with a different nonprofit whose goal is to help women and girls accomplish their best in life and sport. This quarter, BRANWYN is donating 1 percent of all sales to Play Like a Girl, whose work helps level the playing field by keeping girls active in sports through middle school.
