When I heard about a new activewear label, I did a very teeny yawn. After all, you can’t walk five minutes down the road without seeing a yummy mummy in a bra-lette on her way back from her pilates class; Or the Mistress of sportsluxe, Rihanna in one of her infinite track-luxe get ups, in pretty much any magazine.
But when I delved further, Sundried is a label made for people who care. And I do like to think that’s a bit of me. Designed for people who actually work out and spend more time getting sweaty than getting a green juice, the team behind the label are big on training outdoors, and you can tell by the gorgeous capsule collection they have created.
Even though I attempt to look OK when I work out, I know I am going to get a sweat on, so I loved the idea that the simple, timeless styles were ethically produced, and wouldn’t wear out as quickly as some ‘fashionable’ competitors.
With carefully created fabric which is designed to be washed cool, and ‘sun dried’, this might be easier said than done in this climate; But actually the clever bods at Sundried HQ have used a very fine mix of materials which minimise sweat and still keep their stretch after a good long run. Designed in the UK and made in Portugal, all the workers of legal age, get paid a fair wage, and work in safe conditions, which is more than can be said about some competitors.
In keeping with responsible lifestyle choices, for every item sold, a donation is made to the charity Water for Kids. So you can glow on the inside as well as looking fit on the outside; And the kids in disadvantaged countries such as Uganda, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya will benefit from you looking hot too.
Now what’s stopping you working out and feeling good?
