I was very interested in making a positive impact through the products and brand I created. I also saw an opportunity in the market - at the time I was living in Asia and saw that there weren't very many sportswear brands available that suited the South East Asian climate and tropical weather. Much of the sportswear offered in the market was still very much driven by the fits and fabrications from The West. I wanted to create something more unique for the market that was of a better quality, good for the planet and to create something that helped people FEEL GOOD through comfort and design while embracing an active lifestyle.The idea came about from my 3 passions: yoga, the environment and fashion
