ETHICAL SPORTSWEAR BRANDS
The two founders Nadine-Isabelle and Arendt from Germany founded the leisure and sportswear brand Aeance (combines aesthetics, ascetic and performance) with the aim of creating eco-sustainable clothing for every life situation. Ready-to-wear merged with technical apparel. Not only their styles but also their non-seasonal collections are minimalistic: less but better, as they say. The high quality bluesign® and OEKO-TEX® certified materials are from Switzerland, Italy and New Zealand. All pieces are made in Portugal, using cutting-edge technology such as bionic “adaptive” jackets with bonded seams for maximum comfort. Cool: Aeance collaborates with designers such as Steven Tai on timeless, bold and strong styles.

Make it matter: the sustainable activewear label believes in living a conscious life and keeping sweat where it belongs: in our workout sessions. Under fair conditions, all pieces are manufactured in a sewing boutique in Poland – from cut to finish. Designed with love in Berlin, their leggings, bras, t-shirts and tank tops are made from organic cotton, recycled PET bottles and plastic waste. The colorful, bold and dynamic patterns are all drawn by hand. Sustainable activewear, that motivates women to make it matter.
LANDO believes in creating healthy clothing, and we should be conscious about what we put on our skin. Especially when it’s something such as clothing that is in contact with the skin for such long periods of time. Therefore, they use high quality, GOTS certified organic cotton for their basics and active wear. They ensure that no chemicals that may be harmful to humans or the natural environment have been used throughout the entire production process. We love their modern, cleanly designed pieces, and also that they use seeded paper for their tags!

New York, USA
VYAYAMA works with a carefully selected group of partners to produce a high-quality, natural alternative to synthetic yoga wear. The brand uses TENCEL®, an eco-certified non-toxic fabric sourced from sustainable farmed eucalyptus trees. TENCEL® was chosen not only due to the fact that it’s a renewable, eco-friendly fibre; but also due to its technical properties and its softness. Their custom fabrics are dyed at production facilities that take extreme care not to impact the local natural environment with their production waste and wastewater. The result is a range of luxe, expertly designed and crafted pieces to suit both the bold or more modest yogi.
All of Wolven Threads pieces are created from recycled, post-consumer plastic waste. This fabric is created from plastic that has been diverted away from landfills and oceans, and then converted into an Oeko-Tex Certified fibre. Wolven Threads are passionate about informing others about how our consumerism is detrimental to the natural environment. Their bold prints celebrate the patterns found in nature and can accompany you throughout your day due to their anti-microbial, moisture-wicking, and quick drying properties. These properties make them the perfect transition pieces for those with a busy or active lifestyle. The brand also donates 5% of their profits to programs that bring the practice of yoga and mindfulness to at-risk youth!
