Doing sport. Saving the oceans.
Behind the young Braunschweig-based label Re-Athlete are Alina Hische and Johannes Skowron, who have made it their mission to raise the profile of slow fashion, sustainability and environmental protection in the sportswear industry. They are now supported by their own Re-Athlete community, which is made up of numerous athletes from a wide range of sports. With its functional sports wear, the company wants to support animal and environmental protection and free the oceans from the vast amounts of plastic waste and ghost nets.
The garments are made from 100% regenerated ECONYL® nylon fibre, which is recycled from old fishing nets and other plastic waste. By producing in Germany, Re-Athlete can make all work processes transparent and ensure fair, safe workplaces. This is very close to the hearts of the founding team - they also promote work therapy in this context, where people with impairments are offered a re-entry into society and working life.
