Welcome! I design ethical activewear for intelligent, strong, modern women who care about the world and the people in it. My goal is to create unique, beautiful pieces at an affordable price.
I started Matcha & Ink to merge my two passions, health & surface design. I worked in the health & nutrition industry for many years before deciding to pursue my creative dreams in 2013. I studied graphic design & illustration with the goal of becoming a textile designer (more)
Ethical Activewear at an Affordable Price
The fast fashion industry creates tonnes of waste going into landfill every hour. Clothing manufacturers often manufacture more than they need and these unnecessary items usually end up in landfill. The low prices of fast fashion encourage consumers to buy things they don’t need, which are often never worn, or worn once before they are thrown away.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers are still using sweatshops. These factories often have poor working conditions, unreasonable hours, unsafe conditions, unfair wages and use child labor.
I spent a lot of time researching how I could make high quality, ethical yoga wear & accessories. I found some great manufacturers that agreed to make my items to order. This ensures I never have excess stock ending up in landfill.
My manufacturers are all small businesses, based in the US, Canada or Europe. They pay their employees fairly and create comfortable working conditions.
Each item is shipped to you from my manufacturer. This eliminates the emissions created by additional shipping.
We recycle, compost & use green energy where possible. I don’t think any business or individual can ever be 100% eco-friendly but at Matcha & Ink, I do the best I possibly can. Read more about my sustainable business practices.
I also plant a tree for every product sold via One Tree Planted who is a non-profit organization that plant & maintain seedlings in communities all over the world.
Where to Buy Matcha & Ink Activewear
Matcha & Ink products are only available online.
I chose to sell my yoga wear online as selling directly to the customer allows me to keep my prices as affordable as possible while still maintaining fair working conditions and eliminating waste.
