ATSUI: New Local Athleisure Brand to watch out for!

ATSUI: New Local Athleisure Brand to watch out for!

Atsui started in 2014 with a strong vision to provide Pilates and Yoga wear that would match the needs of everyday enthusiasts in function, fashion, and price. Backed by a strong familial manufacturing background, it found its humble success within the community and is now embarking on a bigger mission to provide the same comfort and confidence to all kinds of movements.

Inspired by the different and changing circumstances around the great rivers in Asia, Atsui’s newest collection called ‘Rivers’ represents the brand’s movement and progress, and includes a wide range of functional performance and lifestyle pieces in stylish designs, rich color palettes, and prints.

With Atsui’s strong commitment to quality, the brand also introduces airemov – a specially woven 4-way stretch and moisture-wicking fabric with increased elastane that allows each piece to move as you do.

“We make sure we use the best fabrics to provide the support needed for high-performance activities such as spinning, boxing, and CrossFit,” says Homer Silvestre, co-founder, and designer for Atsui. “Each product that we create at Atsui is carefully designed and engineered with uncompromised quality at honest, appropriate value.”

Check out the Rivers collection below:


Inspired by the river that bisects Shanghai that highlights the two faces of the city – Puxi with its historical architectures and Pudong which is lined with modern skyscrapers.


Inspired by the river in Tokyo, Sumida is a study of contrasts juxtaposing the Japanese reverence for nature with its Sakura tree-lined banks against the electric energy of the big city.


Taking from the changing view of the progress of the Korean megacity of Seoul, where the Cheonggyecheon River is found, the collection features patterns that hint of technology, reworked urban camouflage and topological maps.
