project_sweat

A social enterprise taking a twist.

Project_Sweat all started on the yoga mat, or to be precise, in the changing room after an intensive vinyasa class. Rushing back to work, we usually stuffed our soaking kit in a canvas shopper or plastic bag; at best it would just smell all day or worse it would slowly soak the contents of our backpack.

Surely, we were not alone in our wish to use fewer plastic bags or enjoy a watertight solution for sweaty workout gear. But this in itself could never be enough. Project_Sweat is set up as a social enterprise with the simple idea that a better kit bag can make a world of difference.
We work towards a world with empowered women through easy access to education.

The various, graphic bag motifs have been designed by two Central Saint Martins BA Textile Design graduates, Anna Schlimm and Georgia Fleck. Contributing to the company’s strong visual direction. Schlimm was also commissioned to produce the brand logo. For our graduates, this project not only showcases their design skills, it also gives them a direct opportunity to engage with the possibilities of the product market. In a unique, employee-ownership framework, they are also able to retain an enduring part in something they helped created, as on top of their sale royalties, they have also been given shares in the company.

“This has the potential to evolve into a great project that gives emerging designers a chance to showcase their creativity and gain experience in working with a social enterprise. My hope is that it will encourage future graduates to embed a sense of social and environmental responsibility in their practice.”
— Anna Schlimm
