Rumi Yoga Wear is modern yoga wear, and more. The latest in high performance fitness apparel to land on Australia’s shores, Rumi Yoga Wear brings to its clothes a philosophy of wellness with the entire range products made from sustainable sources, such as recycled plastic bottles – 13.5 to 16.5 plastic bottles go into one pair of leggings to be exact*!
“The Rumi concept evolved from speaking to the yoga and wellness community”, says brand founder, Melissa Chu who is also a certified yoga teacher. “It was clear to me that the apparel we wore was not contributing positively to our yoga experience”.
Committed to creating a line of apparel that both allowed its wearers to express their personality and better serve the environment, Chu insisted on using eco-friendly materials only – the result is breathable, flattering and vibrant yoga wear and everyday apparel, comprised from recycled plastic bottles and stretch spandex.
“Trash is a growing problem, too, so finding uses for non-biodegradable materials like plastic is a must. Plastic, once cleaned, shredded, melted and stripped into thread, is indistinguishable from polyester,” adds Chu, who is from San Francisco, currently residing in Hong Kong.
Rumi’s high-performance leggings are made from 100 per cent recycled plastic while reprocessed coffee grinds are going to be used for their tops. Rumi’s range includes ¾ and full-length leggings, shorts, accessories such as headbands all with digitally inspired prints; available exclusively online in Australia at this stage with delivery in three working days. With plans to introduce tops, and maternity workout wear, Rumi is made for the modern woman.
With Rumi’s attention to detail and thoughtful designs, the cloth transforms into active fashion that will change the trend away from plain, dull sportswear. Rumi’s leggings are known for their wide waistbands and inserted gusset lining for extra comfort and exclusive breathable and super soft fabric. Conveniently, for women on the run, all leggings also have a barely visible pocket to keep cards, keys and loose change safe, and can be thrown right into the laundry without any leakage of colour.
