About Us

Girlfriend Collective is a new kind of activewear brand for people who care. After an initial 2016 marketing campaign of our sustainable black leggings went viral, we knew our vision of creating a community that cares about every part of the apparel production process was achievable. We launched our full line of bras, leggings, and tops in June 2017, built on our core values of ethical manufacturing, sustainable materials, and epic performance. While still a small online retailer, we’ve got big dreams and an aggressive growth strategy already in motion and we want you to be a part of the movement.
