When Michelle and Judy Lei converted to hot yoga years ago, they knew it was love at first sweat. Although they looked and felt fabulous after each session, the quest for that perfect yoga outfit was never fulfilled. The Sisters Lei vowed to set out and create the highest quality active wear apparel by infusing fashion-forward designs with high-tech, functional materials.
With over ten years of experience behind her in textile production and sourcing in the sportswear industry- Michelle brings forth a keen eye for detail as well as a savvy sense of business while Judy- long immersed in the arts, draws upon her rich graphic and fashion design background to collaborate and produce an innovative concept in active couture that embodies simplicity and style.
Locally designed in Vancouver, Light Activewear represents the modern-day athlete in us all. Each garment is designed with the utmost consideration in performance, functionality and style; each seam comes complete with thought and reason.
Have Fun & Feel Light.
Our Light Signature Fabric is developed with a proprietary blend of materials specifically made for our garments. The fabric is yarn dyed, and this allows our fabric to maintain the same shape and form washes after washes. We make sure they provide the perfect amount of stretch and support while retaining the optimum level of comfort for our customers.
While fashion is our first love, we understand that clothing production takes a toll on the environment and we want to do our part. As a responsible business, we strive to bring more sustainable, earth-friendly clothing into our collection. Our new Dope-Dyed Recycled Polyester Fabric is made from post-consumer waste, such as plastic bottles and used garments. The raw material is reprocessed and spun into fibres. Using recycled polyester helps us reduce our dependency on petroleum; allowing us to discharge less waste and reduce toxic emissions from incinerators.
Our major partner and supplier is a ISO certified public traded global company based in Asia. The company provides great working enviroment for their workers and fair compensation. We personally visit our manifacturing facilities regularly, and see it for ourselves the enviroment our products are made in. We will be taking some videos of the factories in our next sourcing trip. So be sure to check back soon to see those footage!
