“Be the change you want to see in the world”

Monique Rotteveel
owner & designer

” Yoga and surfing are a very important part of my life. It has always been a challenge to find good bikinis and yoga pants that stay in place while surfing and during a yoga session.

I traveled around the world, backpacking, when I came to realise that packing light is key. You can’t carry your whole wardrobe with you all the time! I wanted to design the perfect Active Wear, one set of clothes that can be used for all types of sports, on land and in the water. Produced with durable materials and fair production.

My goal is to create fair, functional & feminine designs with colourful prints, which I love to design myself, as I am a graphic designer.  ”


As a fashion brand, we want to leave a positive impact on the people and our planet: we produce our entire collection in Europe. Good working conditions, fair wages for the women and every piece is made with love, you can see and feel that when you wear our products!

No waste: we only print what we need, we design and print each piece exactly on the pattern for that item.

From now on we will only work with our new type of fabric that is made from recycled plastic bottles.

By recycling bottles into clothes we are offsetting the need to produce new raw materials.

Our new packaging is made with biodegradable materials.


Monique Rotteveel ® Active Wear is a member of 1% For The Planet ®, This means that from each of your purchases, we choose to donate 1% to a good cause.
