Sundried – The activewear brand that is not only good for your workout, but for the environment too…
2017 is fast fading, Christmas decoration are being stowed back in attics and Christmas food stashes diminishing, a few lonely Bounty’s left in the Celebrations tin and remnants of tinsel clinging to the carpet. With a new year brings a host of new beginnings, along those the need to get that bikini body. The one you promised yourself you’d get last year but this year you really will stick to. And what better way to get you motivated than some brand new sportswear? After all, looking the part and being prepared is half of the battle. The brand we’re coveting for this is Sundried – a UK-based sportswear brand whose range is designed entirely from recycled waste.
Sundried pave the way for sustainable sportswear, proving you don’t have to compromise on style to be ethical…
This means not only is the exercise good for you, but your clothing is good for the environment too – double win! The ethical activewear fashion brand pride themselves on their innovative and sustainable technology, producing high-quality sportswear that doesn’t compromise on style.
And when it comes to ingredients used to craft sportswear, the last object which probably come to mind is coffee beans, but that’s just what they have used. They process the grounds in a low-temperature, high-pressured environment to turn it into yarn. The coffee has a natural ability to block odour – ideal for when you sweat- and it dries over 200 times faster than cotton making it a very practical addition to your workout wardrobe.
Sundried was founded and is run by a team of personal trainers and athletes, meaning they know exactly what is required from sportswear. (You can also check out their fitness tips on their blog here.)
What we say: We were surprised at just how great Sundried’s collection was. We tried the Sundried Breithorn 2.0 Sports Bra and Sundried Ruinette Capri leggings. The bra is designed with a stylish mesh overlay and can either be worn alone or under a loose training top. Not only is it really comfortable, but flattering too. The leggings are designed simply, with a high waistband mid-calf finish. A real standout feature of the outfit is that you can really feel the quality. The material is thick enough to be durable, yet remains lightweight and soft, providing support while feeling like a second skin. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and can’t wait to expand our Sundried collection.
