Are you looking to buy ethical yoga clothes or Pilates wear but don’t know where to start? It can be really overwhelming – there is a lot to look for when shopping for ethical clothing. But thankfully Asquith makes shopping for ethically produced and eco-friendly yoga, pilates, and leisure clothing easy.
Asquith produces ethical and stylish clothes for women that are specifically designed to provide comfort whilst you do yoga and Pilates. Their range includes tops, hoodies, bras, t-shirts, leggings, and even jumpsuits, all made from organic cotton and ethically sourced bamboo.
The performance fabrics naturally wick away sweat and don’t fade, bobble or stretch out of shape. Meanwhile, you don’t need to worry about your top riding up whilst doing the downward dog, or your trousers falling down whilst trying to master a Pilates position – Asquith’s clothes have been designed to stay in place during practice. Asquith’s mission, after all, is to create collections that make women feel wonderful.
What I love is that Asquith’s range of clothing doesn’t have to stay in your drawer until you’re practicing yoga or Pilates. They are stylish enough for you to wear as everyday leisurewear, and make for perfect comfortable working from home wear, that would be perfectly acceptable for you to wear on your work Zoom call. Although you might want to cover up a little if you are wearing the bra top!
Why Choose Asquith for Ethical Yoga Clothes?
Asquith’s collection of ethical yoga clothes and pilates wear are responsibly made in Turkey. The factory is GOTS certified. This means it is approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard. This is the world’s leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria. It’s backed by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain, so you can shop with confidence.
Rather than stopping there, Asquith has gone further. All the fabrics they use are Oeko-Tex certified. This means the fabrics they use are processed without the use of harmful chemicals in the dyeing and finishing process. This is part of the Oeko-Tex 100 standard – the global testing and accreditation system for the screening of harmful substances within consumer textiles.
The cruelty-free dyes Asquith uses complies with both the GOTS and Oekotex standards. So although they are not natural dyes, no chemicals in their dyeing process are considered by Oekotex to be toxic, making them a better environmental choice, and a safer choice for the garment workers.
In terms of sizing, Asquith’s yoga bottoms come in three different lengths – short, regular, and long. As someone on the shorter side, and who struggles with the fit of most ethical trousers, it’s really refreshing to see ethical clothing offered in a range of leg lengths. Meanwhile, Asquith caters to sizes 8 to 18. Whilst the differing leg lengths are a really great start, I would really love to see Asquith cater for sizes above an 18. I have asked them about this, and Asquith says they are looking into accommodating larger sizes
