The idea of slow fashion instead of fast fashion has gradually reached the gyms and running tracks. Sustainable raw materials, high-quality workmanship and fair trade have spurred these sportswear brands to produce slow fashion.

wijld: Made of Wood

Hard to imagine, but wijld produces sportswear of wood. At first it sounds uncomfortable, scratchy and somehow massive, but in fact it’s not. On the contrary: the garments are surprisingly soft and offer incomparably light wearing comfort. But comfort and style are only half the story for the winner of the German Sustainability Award for Start-Ups. wijld obtains its wood exclusively from certified sustainable forestry, which makes the garments of the German start-up additionally environmentally friendly. In the video below you can see how they spin wood into yarn and make a Woodshirt.
