Whilst Sundried respect our sport to know we need to use materials which wick sweat, stretch and work with our bodies, we also want our fabrics to work towards a better impact on the environment and do this by producing our fabrics in Portugal with the mitigation of harmful substances, pollution and other environmental hazards. We are audited by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund to ensure we minimise the carbon footprint throughout the full lifecycle of our clothing through its design, manufacture, distribution, use and disposal.
Tough workouts require tougher activewear. Sundried clothing is designed to last, trialled and tested by leading triathletes to ensure our athletes are supported. Sundried use premium materials with the finest quality fibres to ensure the products we bring to you are of the highest standard.
All our material choices are made with the mitigation of harmful substances, pollution and other environmental hazards associated with raw material extraction, to protect the planet as best we can. Our production process is regulated by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund who help us to run our company as efficiently as possible.
Here at Sundried we like to make your products journey traceable, it’s part of our ethos. From the extraction of our raw materials monitored by The Low Carbon Innovation Fund, to images from our factory in Portugal. The lifecycle of your activewear is traceable all the way until it hits your doorstep, then it’s up to you. We encourage you to continue your activewear ethical responsibility by following our wash cool, sun dry, care information, which keeps our carbon footprint as low as possible.
Our customers can also trace the journey of their unique pledge to charity Water for Kids through our donate site, which reveals how your donation has been used to help provide a clean and safe water source for a child in need.
Quality is at the heart of everything we do. When Sundried was just an idea our CEO pulled together a team of the finest designers who share our passion for delivering fresh and innovative designs and challenged them to craft activewear with exquisite style and technical function that could be crafted using ethical materials and production.
Our products pay attention to detail, from reflective lining to flatlock seams to ensure the products we bring to you support your sport.
