After one year of preparation, Jamie Hunt, the former triathlon champion from New Zealand who co-founded the 2XU brand and partially sold it to L Capital Asia in 2013, is coming out with a new sustainable performance sports apparel label, called Pressio. The launch coincides with the expiration of a non-compete agreement following Hunt’s departure two years ago as product development manager at 2XU. Pressio claims that all its items are “exactly engineered to enhance running, jumping and recovery, without sacrificing the community or environment.” It uses recycled yarns and environmental-friendly knitting and dyeing processes. A range of Compression Power garments for long-distance running makes use of sophisticated compression techniques. A more comfortable Compression Equilibrium range for any sports offers a graduated compression profile. The two ranges are accompanied by a line of compression socks made with Econyl Recycled 6.6. yarns made from leftover waste. Pressio is being sold as of this month on its own web store. It is reportedly making its debut in the U.K. at Selfridges, Browns and Flannels.
