founder & designer
Hi! I’m Monique (32) and I started this clothing line in the summer of 2015, because I love to design colourful prints, and I love Surfing & Yoga. It was always a challenge to find good surf bikinis and yoga pants that stay in place in big waves, and also in down dog and handstands!
I had been traveling for a while, backpacking around the world, when I realised you wanna travel light, and don’t have much space to carry a lot of clothes with you. So I wanted to design the perfect Active Wear, that can be used for all types of sports, on land and in the water!
My goal is to create high quality yoga & swimwear: functional & feminine designs with unique prints, using only the best materials!
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!
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. 2017 we chose a project that helps clean up the plastic out of our Oceans.
We make the donation, all you have to do is shop your favourite items with us! Thank you!
Also stoked to announce that we are working on getting all of our packaging plastic free, with Bio-Degradable materials.
I always like to hear your ideas, tips and feedback on the styles and prints, so don’t hesitate to contact me!
It’s so amazing to see so many beautiful, athletic women in the water and on the mat, wearing our designs! Thank you so much chicas, without you this would not be possible!
I hope our designs will make you feel confident, strong, and beautiful, while you’re doing what you love!!
