ABOUT

Iron Roots© was founded in 2017 by friends that were fed up with the fact that more than 90% of all sportswear is made from plastics.
When we started to look for alternatives, we couldn’t find any, so we decided to take matters into our own hands. By combining design, functionality and sustainability, we aim to create the best sportswear. Welcome to our journey.
