We make natural athletic apparel


At Iron Roots we have always wondered why almost all athletic brands use plastics in their clothing. Shouldn’t the demonstration of what nature’s possible of; sports, be accompanied by natural materials itself?

This question led us down the road of a black boxed, polluting world of clothing. Where there’s a lack of sustainability and transparency. We believe that this can change! By combining sustainable fabrics like industrial hemp and lyocell, with a transparent supply chain, we create natural athletic apparel.
