Can you run fast without leaving a footprint?

We love:

  • Bright and intense sportswear...
  • ...that doesn’t stain other clothes in your home laundry...
  • ...or fade in the sun

But did you know?

  • Your favorite sports gear has color that just sits on the surface...
  • ...and will cross-stain other fabrics during frequent washes
  • To address this, fabric manufacturers try to remove most of this loose dye using lots of water and energy
