RYLEY is activewear made of recycled waste. Their philosophy is centred around sustainability, function and design, using recycled waste materials and eco-friendly processes. The core of their design starts with a responsible and conscious approach, with a garment’s end of life in mind, so that it can be repurposed. Their garments are locally made in a factory in East London, with materials thoughtfully sourced from recycled threads and zips to biodegradable packaging. To minimise their textile waste, they also offer a Repair/Recycle service in order to encourage a more circular economy. RYLEY's vision is to drive positive change by promoting environmental awareness and an active lifestyle.
With a resolution to build a brand with purpose and meaning, RYLEY was born with a name signifying courage and determination. Inspired by women and made for the resolute – the admirably purposeful, determined and unwavering.
