1. Jilla Active
London based activewear brand, Jilla Active, uses seamless knitting for increased comfort. Their collection includes sports bras, leggings, shorts, and tank tops.

Jilla Active works with their own family-run factory in China to ensure working conditions are kept to a high standard. There’s also a workers union to ensure employees receive a fair wage.
RubyMoon is a not-for-profit swim and activewear brand. 100% of RubyMoons profits are invested in business loans and training for women in developing countries. All of their garments are named after some of the women they have supported – read some of their inspiring stories here!
As well as empowering women, RubyMoon is committed to helping the environment. By using yarn regenerated from ghost fishing nets they help to reduce ocean waste. They also practice slow-fashion principles and a zero-waste approach to packaging.
