Mandala is a German activewear brand founded by Nathalie Prieger in 2001. It creates sustainable yoga wear made of ecological materials.
The label produces stylish yet timeless designs and combines urban trends with sporty nonchalance and feminine elegance.
Mandala promotes an urban and active lifestyle, wearing yoga leggings and a blazer to a business meeting to finally slip into a hoodie and head straight to a sport session.
Mandala encourages a conscious and positive lifestyle. It holds fair working conditions as important as an environmentally friendly production.

"Sustainability is sexy – this we believe from the bottom of our hearts! Not only do our collections look beautiful, but they are also made from high-quality materials having no chemical additives at all."
Mandala aims to produce yoga fashion sustainably. It was one of the first yoga brands to adopt sustainability practices in Germany. The label doesn't use plastic bags but paper banderoles. All paper used in packaging comes from sustainable forests.
Mandala uses a large proportion of organic materials such as OCS or GOTS certified organic cotton, and recycled materials such as recycled nylon or recycled polyester, as well as regenerated cellulosic fibers such as lyocell, and modal from Austrian manufacturer Lenzing.
Mandala manufactures its clothes in Turkey and Shanghai and adopts a respectful approach towards humans and nature. It ensures responsible and environmentally friendly production in its entire supply chain.
The brand guarantees fair working conditions and the payment of a living wage for all workers in its factories. It checks the application of high standards personally on-site with regular visits and audits from third-party organizations such as GOTS and OCS.
Mandala doesn't sell any clothing made from animal-derived materials. The brand decided to become 100% vegan back in 2019 and received the PETA Approved Vegan certification.
Mandala doesn't show any measurement of its greenhouse gas emissions, water, land, and energy use, pollution, and waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goal or timeline to improve in the future either.
