Carrot Banana Peach is a UK-based brand that specialises in organic, plant-based clothing. Founded in 1999, Carrot Banana Peach started out making organic cotton yoga wear, and has since expanded its collection to include bamboo, soybean and aloe vera ranges.
Bamboo, soybean, aloe vera and organic cotton were chosen for their desirable natural properties, including UV resistance, 4-way stretch and breathability, that are suitable for active clothing. Each plant can be grown and utilised in a sustainable, eco-friendly way, thus minimising the impact of the manufacturing process on the environment. Aloe vera and bamboo require zero pesticides and water management to grow, while soybean oil is a by-product that would otherwise be discarded.
Carrot Banana Peach's reputation for lightweight, comfortable and ethical clothing has continued to grow and in 2017, its own concept store was opened in Knutsford, Cheshire. While yoga is the brand's main focus, Carrot Banana Peach clothing can also be used for running and fitness, and appeals athletes from all walks of life.
