Welcome to Scultura a unique sustainable collection of luxury activewear inspired by our beautiful earth, of ocean meeting land and sky.
Building Strength For Our Planet - Sustainability and ethical production are at the very core of every decision we take, from the design concept all the way through to our packaging, we will always put the planet and people first.
Scultura’s vision is that we will not only design activewear that is kind to the planet and the workforce behind the brand but to also create a platform that raises awareness around environmental issues and ethical design and production. We are a slow fashion brand and will always remain that way and we believe that every purchase you choose to make with us is another step forward for the planet.
Our debut collection is created with fabric made from 100% ECONYL® regenerated yarn from ghost fishing nets recovered from oceans and seas across the globe and other nylon waste which would otherwise be destined for landfill.
It doesn’t end there though. The Limited Edition Camufarre collection was designed with a purpose in mind, to raise awareness around the devastating effects of plastic pollution and in keeping with this, is designed with fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Around 12 bottles or more per pair of leggings!
To support our sustainability initiatives we only buy the exact quantities of fabric required for the amount of pieces that we produce to ensure that there is no waste.
Who am I and why did I start Scultura? Well, I was born and raised in London with an Italian father and as an ex dancer, I’m someone who can’t seem to stay away from the gym, I pretty much live in activewear 24/7!
Every light bulb idea begins with a moment of inspiration. Mine was a few years after my son was born in 2008. Before that the environment and sustainability was something I believed in but more in an abstract sense. When I looked at my son, the reality of the threat to our planet became much more real. If the Earth’s temperature rises significantly, if the oceans fill with plastic, what will life be like for him and for the next generation after that?
My passion for sustainable fashion is mostly due to the environmental issues that we face but also from never feeling quite right about throwing clothes away so I either up cycled or donated to charity. This goes way back and I still proudly own several pieces of clothing that I bought in the late 80’s.
I first came up with the concept of designing my own activewear collection after I struggled to find unique high quality gym wear that motivated me. So I began to search for gym sets from smaller brands and up cycled old T’s, tops to wear as layers. It was around this time that I noticed there was a gap in the market for high quality, sustainably designed gym wear that was also ethically sourced and manufactured.
As a Londoner, I was determined to start the journey of Scultura right here in the UK and with my Italian roots I wanted to include my passion for Italian culture in the brand. Scultura translated from Italian means sculpture and this is exactly what we do with our body, mind and soul when we undertake physical exercise. It seemed very fitting! I have held true to doing all I can in the UK and what needs to come from elsewhere comes from our European neighbours, who share our ethical standards and are close enough to reduce the carbon footprint of every garment that we produce.
We have lots more information available on the website about our sustainability efforts on our Sustainability page. In the meantime I hope that this has provided you with an insight into how Scultura came about, who we are and what we strive to achieve for the planet. We are always here to answer any questions that you may have.
Please enjoy browsing our collections and if you choose to purchase from us, I hope that you enjoy wearing Scultura as much as I did creating it.
