Plastic – Free Sportswear from Community Clothing


In 2016, Patrick Grant (best known for his role as a judge on The Great British Sewing Bee), ran a crowdfunding campaign to support UK manufacturers and launch a true Made in the UK brand – Community Clothing. Fast forward to 2023 and Community Clothing is now made up of 45 partner factories, including Fashion-Enter Ltd, employing almost two thousand staff.

The latest range to be launched from the brand is Community Clothing Organic Athletic, a pioneering and innovative range of athletic clothing, made exclusively using plant-based textile technology, representing radically different thinking in the world of sportswear.

Moving away from non-biodegradable, oil-based, synthetic plastic materials that dominate the sportswear market, the range is 100% plastic free and has been printed and stitched in FEL’s Haringey factory.

Patrick Grant comments: “Community Clothing Athletic represents the most radical change in sportswear in two generations. Moving away from oil based sports clothes to 100% natural and biodegradable means now you can exercise and play sport and not harm the planet in the process.”

The range includes vests, t-shirts, sweatshirts and three styles of shorts, available in sizes XS to 4XL for men and sizes 6 to 20 for women. The collection is available in black, white, orange and yellow and is priced from £29 to £70.
