When Imperfect Pointes was asked to collaborate with the Royal Ballet to produce a leotard and a capsule collection of a sustainable activewear we jumped at the opportunity. 

Designed with ballet fans professional dancers and the adult ballet community in mind, the capsule collection includes a half sleeve leotard, activewear leggings and an activewear vest. Each piece is made entirely from ECONYL®; made from nylon waste otherwise polluting the Earth, like fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring, and industrial plastic, recovered from all over the world.

The entire dancewear collection is manufactured at our family-run factory in South Yorkshire.

The leotard and activewear were tested on professional ballerinas from the Royal Ballet and was sold through the Royal Opera House shop in Covent Garden London, or through the Royal Opera House online shop.

The new Royal Ballet X Imperfect Pointes range is an exclusive ballet wear collection made in the UK, entirely from regenerated plastics. It comprises of three pieces, each one named after a plastic pollution hotspot on the River Thames.
