Natural Fiber Athletics
Detox your Wardrobe
Downtown Betty has been Doing it Naturally since 2009,
and we're so happy you’re right here with us!
We invite you to detox your wardrobe, by welcoming the goodness of natural fiber athletic wear, that can easily be worn as workout wear, work-from-home wear, to everyday wear, or worn to dinner out on the town. Multi-purposed clothing, while waving goodbye to landfill-clogging plastics.
Wardrobe Detox, baby!
And while we can’t all transform our entire closets overnight (let’s be real),
we can make daily choices that feel much, much better—
for your comfort, for your skin & for the planet.
Biodegradable Natural Fiber Fabrics
We pride ourselves on keeping our clothing as natural as we possibly can. Each garment is made with 95% cotton (organic where we can) & just enough Lycra (5%) to ensure comfort during yoga, exercise and long wear times.
That’s why Downtown Betty is soooo comfortable to wear.
Unfortunately, most other athletic apparel is made from all synthetics. Synthetic apparel also relies on the petrochemical industries for raw material, meaning these (plastic) fashion industry staples are dependent on fossil fuel extraction. Yuck!
Not only are natural fibers kinder on the planet, they’re kinder on your skin. Your skin can breathe through cotton, which is especially important when sweating while exercising, or extended wear. Cotton transmits moisture away from your skin, like a towel, and is also naturally hypoallergenic.
This means it doesn't irritate the skin. Ideal for those with skin allergies, and for those that prefer a comfier, more natural fabric feel. We think that's a big win!
Because every piece of natural fiber clothing makes a big difference.
Did you know cotton is one of the easiest fabrics to decompose? In the right compost, the material should be gone in less than six months. That’s a tiny fraction compared to synthetic fabrics like spandex, polyester and nylon—
which can take 20 to 200 years to decompose.

and you have to decide what kind of
difference you want to make”

Natural Fiber Athletics Collection:
Check out our beloved 95 Leggings! We call these beauties The 95's because they are made with 95% less plastic than most other athletic apparel out there.
The fabric is 95% cotton + 5% Lycra, so they move and groove with you during yoga, breaking a sweat working out, out & about town, or just lounging around the house.

"Instantly my new favourite leggings. They’re so comfortable, I almost feel guilty wearing them out of the house. But they look so good, they can easily be dressed up—without the sporty spandex look.
I also love how high-waisted they are! And how long they are. Perfect for yoga! Yup, I’m a fan."
