Active Therapy is a luxury ethical clothing brand handmade with organic and eco-friendly fabrics. From dance, yoga to swim the brand aims to give you daily strength with a mindful approach.
The brand was formed from the love of being active and environmentally conscientious.
All garments are handmade locally and fabrics are sourced ethically to create sustainable products. The designer worked in fashion production for many years before completing MA (Master of the Arts) at the London College of Fashion in innovation. This manifested into the development of the brand and the exploration of the business-to-consumer experience. Helping you live a active lifestyle.
What makes Active Therapy different?
1) The Origin:
Who would you like to design your yoga clothes? An yoga teacher, perhaps, that's intimately knows what is required? An fashion designer, maybe, to add soul stirring style. Danielle, the founder is both.
2) Ethical Fabrics:
The brand aims to stay as environmentally friendly as possible by using natural fabrics (bamboo, hemp & pure cotton) and recycling pattern paper and fabric remnants. The double-stretch bamboo fabric is very silky to the touch and so is
smooth and soft next to the skin. It has a good weight and so drapes
beautifully, falling rather than sticking. Bamboo is an excellent choice
for year-round clothing - because of it’s microporous structure and
natural breathability it keeps you cool and comfortable in hot weather
and warm and cosy in the cold. It is also 100% biodegradable and is
naturally grown without the intensive use of chemicals.
3) Ethical Manufacturing:
Each order is handmade locally. We like to create high quality garments and support sustainable fashion (rather then mass production) so each order is made for you! We aim to keep a ethical and transparent supply chain. That is against fast fashion and mass consumption that is often wasteful and harmful to the environment. Being mindful of planet and social impact with each product made.
3) Comfort & Freedom:
When the new collections are designed we not only have the ethical element in mind but also creating the perfect fit for every action sport. The leggings and shorts are high waisted and the sports bra's have double layer fabric for support. Aiming to allow movement and support in the garments, giving a feeling of comfort and freedom.
The design process is carefully thought through and we consider each body shape when creating seasonal collections. The designs are stylish and change seasonally so you can stay on trend. Each garment is designed so you can feel and look good!
We are not just a brand based on appearance, we go deeper. The brands ethos is all about living an active lifestyle as a healthy lifestyle both for you body and brain. Being active is a form of therapy, it can get your blood flowing, improve your muscle strength, boost your endurance, and produce endorphins which make you feel good.
We post regular positive and inspirational quotes and advice (in the blog and on social media) so you can feel positive inside-out.
