Stockport-based Imperfect Pointes has teamed up with The Royal Ballet for the launch of a new range of sustainable activewear to create an exclusive three-piece collection made entirely from regenerated plastics, available exclusively on The Royal Opera House web site from 24 June.

The capsule collection comprises a half sleeve leotard, activewear leggings and an activewear vest, each is made from ECONYL—a material like nylon that is made using regenerated plastics recovered from landfill, industrial sources and the ocean—and manufactured in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Jane Storie, Head of Enterprises at The Royal Opera House, said, “we are excited to collaborate with Imperfect Pointes. The sustainable approach, inclusive brand values and UK production are important to our customers and our business.”
