Carlyle the Label
Carlyle the Label is fresh on the block and is a brand I am so damn excited to get behind.
They create timeless swimwear and exercise gear are made out of nearly 100% biodegradable and recyclable threads. Meaning that if there ever comes a time where you’ve got to throw them out, you’ll know you aren’t impacting the environment in the process.
I’ve actually got a pair of their exercise leggings on right now and I cannot fault them. I’ve done high-intensity interval classes in them, kickboxing classes along with hot yoga classes and these threads have excelled far beyond what I expected. The quality is great and it seems to hug your body in all the right places (holla). An added bonus is that I’ve had people come up to be after the classes to ask where I got my leggings from! I don’t know about you but it's a pretty awesome feeling when someone appreciates what you are wearing and then you are able to further educate them by telling them the story behind it.
Carlyle highlights how the fashion industry is the second largest global polluter only after oil and they encourage each and every person who passes by their store to consume mindfully and to be a game changer within the industry.
As Carlyle was inspired by Brazil, it’s only natural that the pieces are made there. The Brazillian manufacturer is someone who is incredibly passionate about the fashion revolution movement and donates a portion of her profits to support animal rescue shelters in Brazil. So essentially by investing in Carlyle not only do you know your pieces are made fairly, and with quality material that’s also biodegradable but your money also goes to helping animals right back to the middle of the supply chain.
