Our quick-dry and breathable sports bras and leggings with anti-bacterial treatment are made from an innovative, GRS-certified* performance fabric that maximizes the use of recycled pre-consumer waste in every piece. A whopping 100% recycled polyamide teams up with elastane, also with a 58% recycling share. That’s algebra that doesn’t give us a headache, making a total of 93% recycled raw material. 


Our flowy ACTIVEWEAR shirts are made from a performance-forward mix of TENCEL™ Lyocell, organic cotton and elastane, light and airy to wear while retaining a signature bounce that allows you to flex, bend and stretch in any way you want. We use Naturally clean® finish to ensure all colors and surfaces stay vibrant and smooth while extending the garment’s life by at least 20% – reducing carbon, water and waste footprints for every piece in equal measure.


Why did we choose recycled polyamide? Not only is it recycled and helps us save precious virgin fiber. It’s durability, breathability and quick-dry properties are ideal for performance fabrics – something natural fibers like cotton cannot provide with current technology. We took precaution to keep the impact as low as possible, and so should you, by following our care instructionsand by using a washing bag. To help protect the environment and to extend your ACTIVEWEAR’s life.

Wir machen deine Fitness Outfits more sustainable und haben Sportswear geschaffen, die nachhaltiger und ressourcenschonender ist. Dabei sind wir einen weiteren Schritt in Richtung Innovation gegangen.


Vorwärtskommen? Für uns nicht nur beim Sport ein Thema. Wir wollen noch fitter werden, wenn es um Nachhaltigkeit geht. Unsere ACTIVEWEAR ist das erste ARMEDANGELS Produkt, das GRS-zertifiziert wurde (zertifiziert durch CU1085700).


ACTIVEWEAR gehört zu den Performance Fabrics. Das sind Fabrics, die besonders viel leisten müssen und zum Beispiel beim Sport zum Einsatz kommen. ACTIVEWEAR aus Funktionsfasern hat gegenüber unserer sonst verwendeten Bio-Baumwolle einige Vorteile. 

● Funktionskleidung leitet Schweiß von innen nach außen. Das kühlt dich und du fühlst dich auch bei intensivem Training nicht klitschnass geschwitzt. Du kennst das als hohe Atmungsaktivität. 

● Sie ist besonders leicht und stört dich damit nicht durch unnötiges Gewicht. Dadurch ist sie auch als Yoga Kleidung bestens geeignet! 

● Die Fasern sind schnell trocknend. Nach der Wäsche ist deine ACTIVEWEAR schon bald wieder einsatzbereit. 

● Das von uns verwendete Polyamid ist sehr strapazierfähig und macht alles mit.

Im Sportbereich bzw. bei Performance-Fabrics sind Synthetikfasern die naheliegende Alternative zu natürlichen Fasern, eben wegen ihrer besonderen Eigenschaften. Wir haben deswegen nach einer nachhaltigeren Lösung gesucht und arbeiten bei den Leggings und BHs der nachhaltigeren Sportkleidung von ARMEDANGELS mit zu 93% recycelten Fasern.


Unsere ACTIVEWEAR ist speziell dafür gemacht, damit du aktiv sein kannst – im Fitnessstudio, beim Tanzen, beim Yoga und bei deinem nächsten Schritt zu mehr Umweltschutz. Aber natürlich muss nachhaltigere Sportkleidung vor allem eines: Gut sitzen! Wir stellen dir unsere Sportswear im Detail vor. Meet the new ones!

ACTIVEWEAR Basics: Sportsbras

Ein gut sitzender Bra mit gutem Halt ist wichtig. Außerdem sollte beim Sport auch dein BH atmungsaktiv sein. Das alles leisten unsere Sportbras aus 93% recyceltem Material. Deine Optionen: 

● SAATYA: Der Bra ist schmal geschnitten und eng anliegend. Du hast so die optimale Bewegungsfreiheit. SAATYA gibt dir leichten Halt. 

● SAANTOSHA: Der Bra für anspruchsvolle Aufgaben. SANTOSHA bietet mittleren Halt und ist wie SAATYA sehr eng anliegend und besonders schmal geschnitten, damit dich beim Sport kein Stoff stört und der Sport-BH sich wie eine zweite Haut anfühlt.


ACTIVEWEAR Tops: Shirts Unsere Shirts sind super soft und more sustainable! Wir stellen sie vor allem aus TENCEL™ Lyocell her. Das ist eine Zellulosefaser mit Holz als regenerativem Ausgangsstoff. Genau wie unsere ACTIVEWEAR aus synthetischen Fasern sind auch unsere nachhaltigeren Sport-Shirts atmungsaktiv. Das ist unser Sortiment: 

● BENISHAA: Mit diesem Shirt hast du Bewegungsfreiheit, ohne dass es besonders weit sitzt. Passform: Regular Fit. 

● DAYITAA: Das Oversized Sport-Shirt ist das richtige, wenn du es lieber etwas luftiger magst. Es ist sehr großzügig und weit geschnitten.

ACTIVEWEAR Bottoms: Leggings

Mit unseren nachhaltigeren Leggings bist du ready für dein Training. Übrigens: Auch der Elasthananteil in den Sporthosen ist zum überwiegenden Anteil recycelt. Er macht die nachhaltigeren Leggings dehnbar, strapazierfähig und bequem. Deine Auswahl: 

● AASANA: Besonders schmal geschnittene, besonders körpernah anliegende Passform. Fitted, High Waist. Endet unterhalb vom Knöchel. 

● AMBAA: Geschnitten wie AASANA, endet jedoch oberhalb vom Knöchel. Fitted, High Waist. 

● AJAALA: Die passende, nachhaltigere Sport-Leggings für den Sommer! Sehr eng anliegend, besonders schmal geschnitten und kurz. Endet oberhalb vom Knie. Fitted, High Waist.


Leggins und Bras:

Our ACTIVEWEAR leggins and sportsbras are made with 93% recycled material, setting a new standard when it comes to saving precious resources. Main material is 100% recycled polyamide, coming from prodcution waste.

Our products are GRS-certified*.

We're offering a breathable, durable, quick-dry product while maximizing the use of recycled fibers.

The raw material are fibers that are spinning waste, i.e. residuals from production. This happens to be a scarce resource, therefore if some styles may be out of stock, bear with us. It can always take a while to produce new ACTIVEWEAR.


Main material for our soft & sporty shirts is TENCEL™ Lyocell. Lyocell is a cellulose fiber with wood as regenerative resource. ACTIVEWEAR Shirts are light and breathable and the Naturally Clean® Finish extends their life by 20%. [Source: Novozymes A/S].

GRS stands for Global Recycled Standard. Our ACTIVEWEAR leggins and sportsbras are our very first GRS certified products.

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is an international, voluntary standard that set requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The goal of the standard is to increase the use of recycled materials. The GRS includes additional criteria for social and environmental processing requirements and chemical restrictions.

For our ACTIVEWEAR leggins and sportsbras we're using 93% recycled fibers. The polyamide is 100% recycled. Polyamide globally is the second most frequently used synthetic fiber, recycled polyamid however only represented 1.94% of all polyamid used in 2020. [Source: Textile Exchange, Preferred Fibers Market Report 2021].

Synthetics have a bad reputation and most often for a reason. While fibers like cotton are regenerative, synthethics depend on oil, which raises red flags.

It's worthwile taking a closer look: even cotton isn't good per se. An enormous contamintaion of water, often in regions already suffering from drought, an irresponsible use of synthetic, chemical pesticides and hazardous fertilizers are among the reasons that made us choose organic over conventional cotton for our cotton products.

For performance fabrics, products used for excercising, even organic cotton reaches its limitations. And that is due to its characteristics. Regenerative fibers like cotton absorb sweat, start smelling and are drying slowly.

For our leggins and sportsbras we therefore searched for the most sustainable solution and are working with a fabric that is quick-dry, lightweight, breathable and durable.

We're using recycled polyamide, that is 100% made from production waste. According to industry experts, polyamide is less likeley for fiber breakage.

Polyamides like nylon supposedly are abrasion resistant. [Source: European Outdoor Group/Outdoor Industry Association via].

In addition we're avoiding mechanical treatments that could harm the surface, which could cause a loss of fibers.

But while benchmark studies missing, we suggest to take note of our care instructions.

By the way: the elastane used is also 58% recycled. In total we're at a 93% recycling share - the most gentle on resources we can offer when it comes to performance fabrics.

 The rest is on you: please take not of our care instructions and enjoy ACTIVEWEAR!


You sure have heard of microplastics. While washing, microfibres from synthetic textiles can release and make their way from rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Tip: Use the Guppyfriend washing back, also available in our Webshop. According to Fraunhofer Institut UMSICHT, on average 86% fewer fibres of synthetic clothing break when using the washing bag. The fibres that do break are collected in the corners of the washing bag after washing and can be easily removed and disposed of.

By the way: not only can you help protecting the environment, but your garments also live longer when taken proper care of.

Positive side effect: The producer is supporting STOP! Micro Waste with the profits. This NGO is raising awareness for (micro)plastic pollution and is conducting workshops for partners, consumers and educational institutions on how plastics can be kept away from polluting nature.

Study care instructions
To wash your garments the best possible way, always study care instructions.

Use a washing bag like Guppyfriend
To protect your garments and to prevent microplastics from entering nature you should wash your ACTIVEWEAR with a washing bag. You can find the Guppyfriend bag in our webshop.

Sort your clothes the right way
Separate hard from soft textiles before washing. Don't mix garments with a rough or tough surface like Denim with items with a soft surface, no matter if ACTIVEWEAR or e.g. fleece items. You can protect nature and keep your garments for longer!
This implies: please don't wash shoes together with sensitive garments!

Use eco-friendly detergent
Select an eco-friendly detergent and do not overdose. Eco-friendly color detergents are recommended. More soap doesn't make your garments cleaner, but can harm the environment.

Reduce rotation speed
Select a low spin speed. Heavy rotation can leverage friction.

Don't tumble dry
Mechanical stress inside a tumble dryer can cause fibers to break. Our ACTIVEWEAR is fast-drying, so just air-dry it..
