FABRIC PERFORMANCE IS KEY.

Here at SteelCore, we carefully research our fabric sources to select, whenever possible, those made in eco-friendly mills that participate in Fair Trade. We also upcycle bolts of fabric discarded by large name-brands, whose styles and colors have outlived their seasons.

We find satisfaction in knowing that, although the fabrics may not be natural, we are still helping the environment by keeping them out of the landfills where they would otherwise retire. 

We give them new life by making quality, long-wearing, exceedingly soft and comfortable activewear for you at a reasonable price.
