We are committed to sourcing the most innovative, durable and sustainable athleisure out there. From fabric to thread, we keep nature at the heart of everything we create.
All Ran By Nature pieces are produced at Studio 54 in Jesmond, UK. It’s a small batch production, sampling and development studio where seamstresses set their own rates, everything is recycled and all fabric scraps are saved so there’s zero waste.
A 100% recycled yarn used in our leggings and tops. It’s made from rescued ocean waste like discarded fishing nets as well as plastic bottles from landfill.
Amni Soul Eco®
The world's first biodegradable polyamide yarn, used to make our shorts. If this material ever ends up in landfill, it will decompose in just five years. (Normal sportswear takes around 50).
Made from sustainably sourced natural raw wood and 50% more absorbent than cotton. We use this in our designs as it’s ultra breathable and ideal for exercising in.
Any offcuts we have become our accessories, like the skinny sports headband, the wrap headband and our scrunchies.
We use Coats EcoVerde thread (which is vegan). The only globally available 100% recycled premium performance thread with Öko-Tex Standard 100 certification.
To give our athleisure some stretch we add organic eco-elastic from James Tailoring. It’s made in Austria, biodegradable and plastic-free. We also use natural rubber, which is Oeko-Tex certified and manufactured in Spain.
If we need a zip, we always opt for the YKK Natulon®, which is made from recycled plastic bottles. The hang tags, care labels, and neck tape are FSC recycled paper, organic cotton and recycled polyester with Öko-Tex Standard 100 certification.
Our 100% sustainable, biodegradable and recyclable packaging is made in the UK by a company called Bundle. They always use sustainably sourced paper and water-based inks. Our bloom seed delivery slips are from the UK, and are 100% tree-friendly and biodegradable. The polybags are from wastebased co and are fully dissolvable. Head to our socials to see how to dissolve of them. Pop your bloom seed delivery slip in a pot, and use the water from the poly bags to water your seeds. Nurture them to grow, just like your inner strength.
All of our orders are sent via Fulfilment crowd, using carbon neutral shipping. Fulfilment crowd use biodegradable packaging, a fleet-of-foot culture, and are striving to eliminate plastic by 2022. By taking these steps fulfilment crowd are aiming to be the first fully-sustainable fulfilment provider in the UK. They also raise money for community and charitable causes. Carbon neutral shipping is achieved by calculating the carbon emissions per transaction. These carbon emissions are then offset with a project (for example Tree Sisters and Trees For Life) as closely as possible to the location of the initial carbon producing activity.
But we can still do better...
We’re aiming to be a completely circular company, recycling our athleisure into new styles again and again. We’re still working on the logistics of this. But we’ll get there soon. In our opinion the best activewear is the one that leaves no trace in nature.
