Hi, we're Vera and Katia.
We met at high school bonding over R’n’B and aerobics. And while we took different career paths, movement continued to bring us back together.
After a few years in different locations, we found ourselves back in Sydney not only best friends but housemates. Like you, we both had full plates. Realising how important movement was for our self care, we became each other’s cheerleader, PT and Oprah rolled into one. Diaries were synced to move together, relieving stress, boosting endorphins and strengthening our friendship.
Following this passion and instinct, we hatched an idea. Our vision: to make quality activewear that feels great. While superheroes have capes, us mere mortals have activewear to motivate us to feel stronger, happier and healthier. We wanted to go the extra mile by making considered activewear with the planet and your body front and centre.
We wanted picking, pulling and adjusting-free workouts in on-trend pieces that let you focus on you.
And since 2013 that’s exactly what we’ve been doing.
Move more, tread lightly.
Conscious clothing has become the core of our company ethos. When sourcing materials we look to ones that have a lower impact on the environment and promote better manufacturing and recycling practices. Our signature MoveLite fabric is made from used plastic bottles that are broken into flakes, melted into pellets, spun into yarn and knitted. Hey presto, our recycled collection is sustainability in high performance disguise.
We are dedicated to practicing our craft consciously, from our activewear and packaging through to our energy consumption and beyond. It’s a journey and we’re excited to share it.
Combatting micro-waste with GuppyFriends
The next step in our sustainable journey is here! GuppyFriend is our latest step towards cleaning up the planet by helping to reduce plastic micro-waste.
In the fashion industry, it is important for us to be conscious of practices we can encourage to help reduce our footprint...plus life’s just more fun when we know we’re protecting mother nature!
Our mailer and poly bags are compostable! Whaaaaaa? Yep, that’s right! They are made from bio-based materials that break down into oxygen, water and biomass when industrially composted.
This means they use a higher heat source to decompose but will break down within 90 days under specific conditions. To compost your poly bags send them to your local industrial composting facility.
And we don’t stop there! Our swing tags are FSC certified to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests, because we're all about giving Mother Nature a helping hand.
