Bangkok-based yoga and activewear brand Flexi Lexi Fitness, known for its bright, bold colors and quirky designs, has a new eco-friendly collection that will make you look and feel so extra without having to sacrifice on performance or style.
Inspired by carefree, summer holiday vibes and mythical aquatic creatures, “Under the Sea” is the brand’s first collection to boast items created entirely from recycled polyester made from plastic bottles. The recycled bottles are collected and flaked, before they are turned into Repreve chips that are extruded into Repreve yarn. Around 25 bottles are needed for one pair of pants and around 10 bottles are needed for one piece of crop top. With one set, the brand could help reduce up to 35 plastic bottles.
The five sets available—Sassy Seahorse, Let's Be Mermaid, Message in The Bottle, Turtly Awesome and Whale Be Okay—each comprise super-soft and stretchy crop tops (B2,275) and leggings (B3,325), packaged in a customized eco-friendly canvas zipper bag made by a local seamstress.
The brand claims every purchase of the Under the Sea collection will go towards helping local artisans generate more income and give them above average wages in order to support their families and work in a safe environment.
