Describe yourself in three words.
Never - not - smiling
What gives you energy?
My bike, my yoga morning routine, being outside, my dog and hubby - good foooooood!
What’s your personal mantra?
Better an ‘oops’, than a ‘what if’ and ‘Do everything with a good heart and expect nothing in return and you will never be disappointed.’
What does “sustainable sportswear” mean to you?
For me ‘sustainable sportwear’ means that it is good for the environment and for myself. Quality clothing that I can wear for a long time without harming anything or anyone with it.
I love the story and the family business behind this brand. Their good energy and willingness to become better and bigger reflects in their clothing.
Your favourite RectoVerso item?
I love the feminine sport bra’s that RectoVerso has. GOOD JOB!
Complete the sentence: RectoVerso is …
Sportswear that every woman who loves sustainability and femininity has to have in their closet.
