I’ve been wearing Asquith ethical activewear for a few years now and every season seems to surpass the previous in terms of designs and prints. But although the styles change, the substance doesn’t. From day one, this London-based brand has had three things at the heart of its ethos: product, planet and people.
Asquith bamboo yoga clothes are of course perfect for the studio, gym and running track, but they’re multi-functional too; it is easy to dress them up. There are plenty of “everyday” clothes too. Every piece is made to last with top quality eco-fabrics. And because the fabric is so soft, everything is supremely comfortable. In fact, it is THE most comfortable clothing I have ever owned.
It’s made using bamboo and Bambor®, (Asquith’s trademarked performance fabric, a blend of bamboo, organic cotton and Elasthane). The organic cotton and bamboo fabrics are both from FSC certified, well-managed forests. The clothes come in polybags made with PVC free material within biodegradable mailing bags. And promotional postcards and catalogues are made from recycled paper.
Asquith ethical activewear and clothing is responsibly made in a GOTS certified factory in southern Turkey, established in 1997 by a Turkish businesswoman. The team works 8.5 hour days with weekends off, and most have worked there for between 10 and 25 years. The working conditions are excellent here in the UK too. Asquith advocates of flexible-working and creating a good work life balance. Many employees have young children and fit their working hours around school. Asquith is a feelgood company for women and planet alike.
My bamboo yoga clothes are from the latest collection. Last season I chose python print,this time the leopard proved impossible to resist. The batwing top is soft and drapey and I have it in two or three other colours. What I particularly like is the fact it’s fitted at the hip. The drapey bamboo fabric is ultra soft and comfortable,. It’s clear to see, (and feel), why this is the best-selling style of bamboo yoga top. I also have these, the Divine Pants in different colours too. I love the relaxed shape and tapered leg.
As well as the leopard print top, I got a black hoodie. I have this in navy and wear it on repeat, which despite countless washes, looks as good as when it was new; there is no fading whatsoever. My new black version looks fabulous with the black and leopard pants as well as with a multitude of other bottoms.
