Audra: With everybody go and during these days why not include it in your workout. Our fitness expert Andrea shows us some eco wear that caters to everybody. Metcalf
Andrea: You know being a healthy lifestyle expert isn’t just about exercise, in fact it’s about how you feel on a day to day basis and believe it or not your exercise clothes can really make a difference. So we reached out to Nolcha, the independent fashion business owners and found Restore Clothing which is a unique concept that not only looks good from the gym to the office but it has responsibility.
Andrea: Anthony and Celeste Lilore owners of Restore, tell us about the company?
Anthony: Restore clothing was founded here in New York because we believe in manufacturing locally and keeping the money in the local economy. On top of that you can stay in the factories and make sure that what is supposed to be being made correctly is in fact being made correctly.
Andrea: Well, tell us a little bit I’m very excited about the fabrics and what Restore actually means?
Anthony: Restore is an acronym and it means Responsible, Earth Friendly, Sustainable, Technological, Organic, Recycled, and Ergonomic and its kind of a tight box to have painted it ourselves into but it works.
Andrea: Well Restore also refers to how you feel about exercise and being connected to the earth and giving back and so all these fabrics have that same concept.
Anthony: They do, they are all North American sourced fabrics ranging from beautiful organic supima cottons to recycled polyester and recycled nylon first to market with the recycled nylon.
Andrea: So tell us Celeste a little bit about why these clothes work in the exercise world back to my daily life?
Celeste: The pants are all cut pitched so their higher in the back sloping on the sides and cut modern below the navel and he front. As you move you don’t get any plumbers crack and it really helps to minimize muffin top.
Andrea: And then I also love the sleeve length because when I’m out there reaching I don’t lose my sleeve in this like this.
Celeste: Right, so if you’re on a bicycle there the right length.
Andrea: Yeah, and I love that and the fabrics are so amazing I’m amazed that it’s recycled polyester here that I’m wearing because they feel so amazing.
Celeste: Their soft.
Andrea: And versatile pieces too, tell us a little of the base pieces and the collection?
Celeste: We have tank with a built in shelf bra and those have a really plush thick elastic so it also minimizes any bra fat that you have because it’s nice and thick. There’s no latex against your skin and the bra is constructed as a real home for the girls. It’s U-shaped.
Andrea: I like to hear that. Not that that’s ever been my problem but just I really like the soft elastic through here because it changes the way you look through the back, you don’t have to worry about feeling like your in a sausage casing. So you know feeling good about your workout comes from the clothing and the exercise that you do and at least with Restore clothing we can feel good that we’re earth-friendly and we still look great.
