About

ONE WAY TICKET SUMMER COLLECTION. Active and lifestyle wear made from recycled plastic bottles for the dreamers, travellers, adventure seekers, sun chasers, surfers, skinny dippers and all in all bad ass women. 

*please read the info below as we explain the process behind this collection*

*Scroll down to see our products pictured* 

At mymantraactive.com

We believe our oceans are for skinny dipping, surfing, and snorkelling, and islands are for white sand, palm trees and cocktails sipped in a hammock. But somehow, we ended up with oceans and islands made of plastic, harming our environment, wildlife, and our health. It is time for change! 

A fit you’ll love, in a print you’ll love, made with love for our planet. Our activewear is inspired by travel and nature, and made using recycled plastic bottles. So you can keep traveling and discovering without adding to the ever increasing plastic problem.

At My Mantra, we believe that every BODY is beautiful.  We are a tribe of women that support and uplift each other, and Photoshop is not welcome here. So, here’s to the women that will wear our activewear cliff jumping, by a campfire, or on a beach clean. The women who are not afraid to go solo and get lost. The kind that love a one-way-ticket.  

Join Our Journey

It all started when I left London behind to work on a small island in Thailand four years ago. Inspired by the island lifestyle, I came up with My Mantra Active, and eventually launched 8 pairs of leggings (from a hotel room in India). 

Since that day, more and more lines have been added to the collection, and the brand has grown, finding its feet and personality. My Mantra's logo evolved from a delicate butterfly to a strong and empowering "MM", representing strong, active and adventurous women who care about our environment. 

They say that brands are a lot like their owners, and My Mantra Active has grown alongside my own personal journey traveling the world and running fitness escapes. These adventures have taught me what I want in life and in business, and I have a clear vision for My Mantra Active's future. Now all I have to do is bring it to life. 

Kickstarting My Mantra's Summer Collection

This is the part where I will need your help. We will need to raise the necessary funds in order to create the new collection I envision. 

Rewards - What You Are Buying

Store credit. I decided to offer store credit as a reward, or a thank you for your support. Store credit is the most flexible type of reward possible. This means that you'll be able to spend your credit on whatever you want. 

Our Kickstarter Collection

Now that you know what you're buying and why, let's talk about about the fun part - what to spend the credit on. The short answer: anything in our online store. 

The long answer: after years of releasing a couple of designs at a time, we're ready for the next step. Kickstarter will be funding our biggest collection to date, bringing you a bigger selection and access to all the samples you know and love.  

Our products are pictured below and we've included prices, so you can decide how much store credit you'll need to get your hands on your favourite pieces. 

Where Your Money is Going

We're glad you asked. You'll be funding new designs, including our eco fabric and ethical manufacturers as well as import costs, and enabling us to provide a bigger selection for you to shop and enjoy.

We will do a standard order of 30 pieces for each design. Once the campaign has ended, you will receive a survey which will allow you to tell us which designs you intend to spend your store credit on. This will help us get a rough idea of the amount to order in each design. In the event that you miss our products launching on the website, and you don't get your hands on the item(s) you wanted, you can go ahead and pick any other item of your choice or wait for a restock.

We Don't Use Any Plastic

We're on an eco journey. The first step was to change fabrics. Our activewear is now made from recycled plastic bottles, and our tees are made from 100% organic cotton. Next, we went plastic-free in our production and distribution. We don't use any plastic in the packaging of our products, instead using spare bits of bikini fabric to individually "wrap" orders, creating less waste. Finally, we replaced our hygienic bikini bottom liners with liners made from paper. This is our first 100% eco-friendly collection and we're so proud. 

How To Order

1. Click "Back this Project": Select the available reward tier you would like to pledge on the right side of the page. Each backer may only make one pledge.

2. Payment: Enter your payment information. Your payment won't be effective until the very end of this campaign.

3. Style/Design: Don’t worry about that yet! You will get to select your designs at the end of our campaign. Please read the steps below for more info about the process.

Our tees are made from 100% organic cotton.

Next Steps - what to expect from here

Step 1 - Purchase your desired store credit.

Step 2 - Help us reach our target in 30 days. Tell your friends, share our story, spread the love. If we don't reach our target, kickstarter won't release any funds to us.

Step 3 - We hope this is when we smash our target and kickstarter releases the funds to us (which takes about 7 days). We then contact you with your store credit information.

Step 4 - The survey will go out. This is when you tell us which designs you chose.

Step 5 - We organise the BIG ORDER with our manufacturers and start the production of the collection. 

Step 6 - We will keep you updated about the production of the collection. We are as anxious to get our hands on the products as you are. This will take about 6-8 weeks. 

Step 7 - We email you the release date, so you know when the collection goes live on our website. Make sure to set 5 alarms, as we will be operating on a first come first serve basis. 

Step 8 - The big day! You'll receive an email granting you early access to the collection, only for our kickstarter backers. You place your order through our website using your store credit from kickstarter. 

Step 9 - You receive your tracked order and jump up and down with excitement (this is quite an important part).

Step 10 - You go on some wild adventures, wearing our brand... 

Risks and challenges

We've been in this business for nearly 4 years, so we know what we're doing. But we like to keep it real, and from time to time problems do arise. We know what problems to expect, and are planning for them to be resolved if they do, in a timely manner.

A potential risk is that our manufacturers provide final pieces that are not up to our (very high) standards. This is unlikely to happen, as we have worked with our manufacturers for years and they have onsite quality control. However, in the unlikely event that final pieces will need to be redone, it will take our manufacturers roughly 3 weeks to re-create the products.

Our manufacturers are aware of our Kickstarter campaign and have assured us that the quality control will be top notch for our backers. I will be doing my absolute best to visit our manufacturing facilities during the quality control process, to ensure I am able to guide the process in person. However, as I am constantly traveling for work I cannot promise I will be able to fit this in.
