2. Future-fit, in every way possible | Anima Active
The search for eco-friendly, ethically produced activewear that is kind to the ocean, can be arduous. Thankfully, Anima Active
has the answer. In the collection, you’ll find all the quintessential sportswear apparel you’ll need to complete your active fashion capsule wardrobe.
Brand founder, Raquel Telo was inspired to create Anima Active when she realised just how toxic many of the world’s most common synthetic fibres can be to the environment. Mass-produced textiles such as polyester, rayon, acetate and nylon are treated with thousands of chemicals during production. At the end of their relatively short lifespans, these garments end up in landfills or in the sea as pollution, where they cause damage to delicate plant and animal life.
With Anima Active however, you get all of the functionality without any of the nasties. All the garments you’ll find in the range are made from recycled Tencel fibres that are produced in Austria. This pioneering textile is made from wood taken from trees that are cultivated without the use of chemical fertilisers and in sustainably managed forests. This makes all Anima Active garments fully biodegradable in both soil and marine conditions.
