Kamilla is our activewear manufacturing partner in Estonia. The company was founded in Tallinn in 1991. Their core business is in making outfits for ballet, gymnastics, aerobics, swimming, and dancing, and that requires a wide but detailed skill set. This is why we have fully trusted their quality seamstress work from the very beginning.
The ladies in Tallinn help us make the final improvements to our patterns. They make their own prototypes every time to ensure they find the most effective and sustainable sewing methods for each garment.
During our partnership, we have both been growing. Kamilla has been able to develop their business by purchasing new technologies, hiring more people, and raising the salaries they pay staff.
Carvico /Jersey Lomellina is a fabric company from which we source our activewear materials. The company is located in northern Italy. All our activewear materials have Oekotex standard 100 certifications, which means no harmful chemicals are used in the fabric making process.
Fabric making is a highly technological process and here are some facts about how Carvico reduces their impact on the environment in the long-term. The company uses renewable electricity sources; between 2002 and 2017 they have been able to reduce energy consumption by 17.4%/tonne of finished product manufactured. 448 953m3of water is recovered and reused every year. That is approximately the annual water consumption of 7 000 people. 48.3% of the water used in production is recycled. 95% of the waste is recycled and reused. This equals 154 garbage trucks not emptying waste into landfill every year.
Our lazywear items are made together with a Finnish company called Pure Waste. The company was born in 2014 on sustainable values. All their items are made using 100% recycled material, undyed, and responsibly produced in Pure Waste's own facilities in India. Soon they are expanding their production to Bangladesh to meet the increased demand for recycled fabrics.
Both countries are near the top when it comes to producing clothes, and thus also producing textile waste. It makes sense logistically to be located right at the source of the materials they use. In India, Pure Waste has their own facilities, from sorting out the waste to manufacturing new fabrics. In Bangladesh, they are going to produce in a factory that has BSCI certificate (Business Social Compliance Initiative).
We choose to work with Pure Waste because they are an amazing and innovative example of how there are thousands of ways to be responsible, transparent, and sustainable. We want to be part of their story and we want Pure Waste to be part of ours. They also have an excellent website with all the information you need about the ethical and ecological sides of their business.
Our Népra socks are made in Ylöjärvi, Finland by Sukkamestarit. The company was founded in 1996 in Ylöjärvi. Sukkamestarit has a certification (avainlipputuote) for Made in Finland. All raw materials have Oeko Text 100 Standard certification and raw materials that come from “high risk” countries have to have additional certificates such as GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) or BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative).
Starting in 2018, our Nox Socks are made using a mix of organic cotton (instead of conventional cotton), polyamide and elastane.
Népra Gym Sacks
Our Népra Gym Sacks are made by Printscorpio. They are located in Aitoo, Finland. The print is also 100% digital so that it has less negative impact on the environment than traditional printing. A digital printing process does not consist of films and frames at all, and it uses only a fraction of colour compared to traditional printing methods.
The company is overall committed to making better choices by improving their production methods to be less of a burden to the environment. They have been using renewable energy since 2010. In May 2018, they installed 228 solar panels and every fourth product is manufactured with the energy sourced from these panels.
We order our labels and ribbons from Tuotenauha from Lahti, Finland. The labels are customised for us in Lahti (e.g. printed).
The material of our care labels is polyester satin, transported to Lahti from Great Britain. Country of origin is China (the factory the British company uses).
The material of our logo labels (blue labels with white logo print) comes from Turkey.
The satin ribbon comes from France.
Pre-order means that the product is not in stock nor available for immediate delivery. A customer can order a product before or while the product is being manufactured. Pre-orders allow us to produce more responsibly and help us to meet demand better.
Pre-ordered products usually arrive within 3-4 weeks. The estimated schedule is visible on the product page of each PRE-ORDER product. If the schedule changes for reasons beyond our control, we get in contact with all customers that are waiting for their orders.
Yes, you can always cancel your preorder if your situation changes or if you feel like the wait has been too long. You can do so by emailing us your order number and stating you’d want to cancel. No reason needed, and it’s completely ok if you need to cancel! We will refund your entire order amount including the shipping cost.
If the order has already been sent and you need to return the item(s), you can do so within 14 days from receiving the items. Our standard return policies apply on all preorder items as well.
Of course! Our normal return policy also covers pre-ordered products. So you can order a pre-order product with peace of mind, and if you want to return products, you can do so within 14 days of the order arriving to you. The waiting period for pre-ordered products does not affect your right to return them, the return period is always 14 days from receiving the order.
Yes you can, but please note that your order will be sent out once the last item on the order has arrived at our warehouse. If you want to order both pre-ordered and in-stock products and you want the products quickly, we recommend placing two orders to get your in-stock items immediately. If you are not in a hurry and want to save on the shipping costs, you can add the in-stock products and the pre-order products to the same order. In this case, we will send your order as soon as all the products have arrived.
On the product page you will find a size guide for each product, with a size chart showing the body measurements in different sizes. We recommend taking the body measurements with a flexible tape measure from the top of skin-tight clothing. If your measurements fall between the two sizes, we recommend that you choose the larger size.
Products are ordered according to pre-ordered quantities, so extra products in all sizes and colors may not be available in stock. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to exchange a product for another size. You can still return the product. However, please contact us about an exchange so we can check the status of the products and see if an exchange is possible.
