Local activewear brand Outfyt launches a sustainable collection ECO LUXE, made from recycled fishing nets
Active for change
Sustainability is something that's on the top of everyone's minds nowadays, even when it comes to the clothes on our backs. From polluted oceans to burning rainforests, there's quite a lot to work on — but every little bit of individual thoughtfulness goes a long way in saving our planet. That's why we are so excited to see Outfyt, a local activewear brand that has just launched ECO LUXE, their sustainable activewear line. Given that the local sustainability movement is still growing, it's heartening to see a homegrown label setting an example while enabling a healthier lifestyle at the same time.
With ECO LUXE, it is all about the material — ECONYL Regenerated Nylon, a nylon fabric made from nylon waste such as abandoned fishing nets from the oceans, and scrap material from mills. The special material is made in Italy and has even been used by the likes of fashion houses like Burberry.
Lending the midas touch of LYCRA XTRA LIFE fibre, expect a stubbornly-durable fabric, that's tougher and more resistant to wear. So the stylish collection is not only comfy enough for home lounging, but also functional enough to withstand those strenuous gym workouts. Other than its fabrics, Outfyt also comes with sustainable packaging — packaged in biodegradable and compostable cassava bags instead of plastics, and also forgoing wrapping paper and silica gel bags, amongst other common practices.
Aligned with the brand's ethos of ethical produce, all the apparel from Outfyt is manufactured by workers in Indonesia, granted a living wage and safe environments to work in. Let's just say, it might be time to revisit what we're donning on for our next ClassPass sesh. Any form of plausible buy counts — more than you know.
