Wearable waste – activewear label Jasmine Alexa drops a new sustainable line
Whether you’re a gym fanatic, yoga master or lover of comfortable threads, there’s always room for (more) activewear in our wardrobes. Though, finding pieces that are high quality, feel great and are sustainably made isn’t always easy. Enter Jasmine Alexa and its new sustainable line that is making waste wearable.
Jasmine Alexa’s newest sustainable range uses post-industrial waste, such as discarded fishing nets and used carpets, to create beautiful and timeless pieces. The brand’s Stand Strong leggings are its very first pair of leggings to be made using these materials, resulting in a beautiful, durable performance fabric. Not only are these leggings sustainable, they also boast UV protection, shape retention (so important) and they’re super breathable, making them the perfect addition to any wardrobe.
Jasmine Alexa has made its mark on the Australian fashion scene since its launch at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week in 2016. It can be tricky to find pieces that encapsulate activewear functionality and daywear elegance, but the brand aims to blur the line between the two styles, while maintaining its ethos of creating honest and uncomplicated clothing. By merging the two, the brand focuses on encouraging modern women to move freely and confidently through their fast paced lives, with a focus on not only how the clothes look, but how they make them feel.
