Breath of Fire is a family business founded in 2004. However, it was in 2009 that the brand established itself as such.
Self-funded, Breath of Fire is one of the only sustainable clothing brands in Switzerland. It promotes yoga outfits made from organic materials, from production that respects the environment and people.
Sustainability, environmental, social and economic, is a journey in itself, and ours began with our mother Cornelia's approach, offering stylish yoga clothing for men and women, following her personal beliefs according to the Ahimsa Yoga Sutra .
Our goal has always been to be 100% sustainable, respecting the environment and the people we work with. We are on the right track, and in many areas it has been a real team effort since we started this family adventure.
Breath of Fire is a sustainable fashion brand synonymous with beautiful and stylish yoga clothing with a consciousness where the body and comfort of movement are at the center. We work daily to improve our brand because we believe it is possible to beautify our world with perseverance and small changes.
At Breath of Fire, we love and respect the Earth and its resources. Our goal is to only source organic and sustainable materials with as little carbon and chemistry footprint as possible.
We produce in two raw materials, organic cotton and bamboo. The origin of raw materials is certified and controlled, as are our means of production. We have two production houses that we visit regularly and with whom we have excellent relationships. By the way, they are also part of our family business, and we love it!
Sourcing our sustainability brand
We only use environmentally friendly materials, including natural plant products and fibers, for our sustainable production. We only worked with natural cotton for ten years to make our mother's Breath of Fire collection produced in Portugal.
We chose a blend of organic cotton and bamboo fiber for our new Evolve collection.
There bamboo viscose is a natural material made from dried bamboo fibers and a chemical process. Bamboo has the advantage of using very little water for high productivity. The one used in our clothing only comes from sustainably planted and managed forests. The chemical process used to transform bamboo fiber into bamboo viscose is controlled and reasoned, and the waste thus produced is free of any toxic chemicals.
OUR new Evolve collection , in natural Turisk cotton and bamboo, is produced in Turkey.
Our brand concept
The concept of our brand is “EverGreen”, which allows us to offer the same model over several years. We produce consciously, ensuring only the quality needed for each quarter and avoiding overproduction. Our concept allows us to not waste any fabric and always get the most out of each kilo of knitted fabric. This allows for ideal optimization of resources.
Our yoga clothing comes in a variety of sizes and colors, each having a spiritual meaning . In addition, each piece in our collection is designed as a whole, so you can build your outfits and variations as you go, buying only what you need and replacing it when the time comes.
Like many sustainable clothing brands, we don't think short term, but only long term on all different aspects of the brand.
It's difficult to produce the same garments all the time, so you may experience slight variations over the years. This is due to the small productions we offer and the non-standardized work provided by large productions. We hope you enjoy these small variations, which are synonymous with properly exploited resources.
Above all, we sincerely hope to satisfy you by making you comfortable in your clothes and by listening to you.
We always want to innovate and keep an open and creative mind with an excellent sense of adventure; that's why we are opening a second production and are now GOTS certified to trace every product from the cotton farm to you, ultimately.
Through our yoga clothing brand, we want to bring about social change and also want to progress in packaging. We will also offer you a new natural material... but this still remains a secret that we can't wait to reveal to you soon...
