Good products start with good resources, and we are happy that we have some great natural fabrics to work with. All of our fabrics are plant based, which means that our sportswear is completely vegan.
Hemp is and always will be one of our favourite plants. Its versatility and positive environmental impact make this plant a must for the future. More on why we think hemp is awesome can be read here.
Hemp fabric has some unique properties that make it great for working out. It is naturally antistatic and antibacterial, which means it’s more comfortable to work out in and also makes you smell less during workouts. Win-win! In order to produce locally, we source our hemp from Turkey.
There are two types of trees that we use to create our clothing with: eucalyptus and beech trees. Wait … how do they do that? Here you can find out more!
Both the eucalyptus and beech trees that we use are FSC certified and processed in a sustainable way into fabrics, which makes them great alternatives for plastic. Fabrics made out of eucalyptus and beechwood (also known as TENCEL™, lyocell and modal) are antistatic and antibacterial, just like hemp. But one key difference is that these fabrics keep your body cool, which makes it great for intense training sessions. We source our beechwood and eucalyptus from Austria and Portugal.
Organic cotton is as the name states; organic. This means that there are no pesticides used in the production process, which is way better for the environment.
We mainly use organic cotton because it makes other fabric softer when mixed, which is especially useful with hemp since raw hemp fabric is on the rough side. This way you have the benefits of hemp and the softness of organic cotton, so you’ll see a lot of hemp and organic cotton mixes in our products. We source our organic cotton from Turkey.
For now, these are the materials we work with. But we are always looking for other natural materials that we can make products with. If you know some other great materials we should experiment with, let us know!
