One of the biggest inspirations to Jilla and our designs is planet Earth - sea blues, natural materials and earthy tones. We are on a mission to reduce our impact on the environment to keep our community exercising and practicing yoga in a world that is healthy and protected.
We are on a journey towards a more sustainable future. Our goal is to develop in a sustainable way by reducing our impact on the planet through all stages of the supply chain.
We are aware of the impact the fashion industry has and we take our company's responsibility to change and become even more sustainable seriously.
With each season, we have increased the number of styles made with more sustainable fabrics to the point where every item will be consciously made with responsible materials. In our range we now use as standard GRS recycled polyamide, TENCEL modal, recycled polyester, bamboo viscose yarn and GOTS organic cotton.
We source recycled trims and components where available to ensure the whole garment is considered during it's product development.
Water filtering technology is used during the dying process to help reduce our environmental impact by cleaning and recycling the water and avoiding pollution to the surrounding water systems.

Jilla Active products are packaged in plastic free packaging which is made from recycled and/or biodegradable materials.
To send our orders out to customers we use brown paper mailing bags which are FSC approved and easily recycled at home.
Some of our products are wrapped in Aquapak polymer bags which dissolve in hot water, are commercially compostable and marine safe. The bag is completely water soluble, ocean safe and biodegradable as it breaks down harmlessly to a non-toxic biomass in soil and sea!
Other items such as bras and leggings are sent 'naked' with zero packaging to reduce our demand on resources.
To reduce our carbon footprint we ship our goods from the factory by sea, and once here we choose the delivery partners with the lowest footprint.
Royal Mail is known as the most eco friendly delivery option with the largest number of postal workers on the ground, they have the lowest reported carbon emissions per parcel of any major UK delivery company.
For larger orders and wholesale we use DHL GOGREEN who have a goal of achieving zero emissions by 2050.
