Sustainability

Breath of Fire is a family owned brand.

Founded in 2004 but it was in 2009 that the brand was established as it is;
Self-funded, made of organic materials from environmentally and human friendly production.

Sustainability, environmental, social and economic, is a journey in itself and ours began with our mother Cornelia’s approach, offering a stylish and elegant yoga clothing brand, following her personal beliefs in accordance with the Ahimsa Yoga Sutra.

Our goal has always been to be 100% sustainable, respecting the environment and the people we work with. We are on the right track, and in many different areas, and it has been a true team effort since we started this family adventure.
Breath of Fire is synonymous with beautiful and stylish yoga apparel with a consciousness where the body and comfort of movement are at the center. We work daily to improve our brand because it is with perseverance and small changes that we can improve our world.

At Breath of Fire, we love and respect the planet Earth and its resources. Our goal is to source only organic and sustainable materials, with as little carbon footprint and chemistry as possible.

We produce in two main materials, organic cotton and bamboo. The origin of the raw materials is certified and controlled, as are our production facilities. We have two production houses that we visit regularly and with which we have excellent relations. By the way, they are also family businesses and we love that!

Sourcing

We only use natural vegetable products and fibers.

We have only worked with organic cotton for 10 years to make our mother collection of Breath of Fire produced in Portugal.

For our new Evolve collection we have chosen a blend of organic cotton and bamboo fiber.
Bamboo viscose is a natural material, made from dried bamboo fiber and a chemical process. Bamboo has the advantage of using very little water for a high productivity. The bamboo used in our garments is only sourced from sustainably managed and planted forests and the chemical process used to transform the bamboo fiber into bamboo viscose is controlled and reasoned.
The new Evolve collection, made out of Turisk organic cotton and bambou is made in Turkey.

The concept of our brand is “Ever Green”

which allows you to offer the same model over several years. We produce only the quality needed for each quarter and avoid overproduction. Our concept allows us not to lose any fabric and to always get the most out of each kilo of knitted fabric. This allows for an ideal optimization of resources.
Moreover, each piece of our collection is thought as a whole, so you can progressively build your outfits and variations, while being able to buy only what you need and replace it when the time comes.
On all the different aspects of the brand, we don’t think in the short term, but only in the long term.

It is very difficult to produce the same garments all the time, so it is normal that you will encounter small varaiatons over the years. This is due to the small productions we offer and the non-standardized work offered by the large productions. We hope that you will be able to appreciate these small variations, synonymous with properly exploited resources.

Above all, we sincerely hope to satisfy you by offering you a real comfort in your clothes and remain at your disposal.

What’s next?
We always want to innovate, to keep an open and creative mind with a nice sense of adventure, that’s why we are opening a second production and are now certified GOTS so that we can completely trace each product from the cotton farm to you.
We are also going to offer you a new natural material…  but this is still a secret that we are looking forward to revealing to you soon…
