ASH BE NIM­BLE

This brand’s mis­sion is to pro­vide ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able lo­cally-made sports­wear for all. It of­fers a full range of sports ap­parel for men, women and chil­dren that is not only func­tional and ap­peal­ing but also priced be­low RM100 each.

It also has a mod­est, com­fort­able and stylish ac­tivewear range for hi­jab-wear­ing women which de­buted in 2015.

The range is made from soft, stretchy and sweat-wick­ing ma­te­rial. Among its best-sell­ers are long-sleeved mesh tops with fin­ger grips and Ash Be Nim­ble x Numma Nuur hi­jab (a col­lab­o­ra­tion with an­other lo­cal fash­ion brand) that comes in three lengths. Sarah At­tar of Saudi Ara­bia is the main in­spi­ra­tion be­hind Nike’s Pro-Hi­jab, its new mod­est sports­wear line.

ARIANI

Ariani is among the pi­o­neer brands in pre­mium tudung and cloth­ing for Mus­lim women.

Its Ariani Ac­tive range is meant for sports and ranges from its sig­na­ture “tudung awning” to blouses made of poly­blend ly­cra and pants.

The range is straight-for­ward and non­spe­cific (func­tion-wise) and more suit­able for leisure and light ex­er­cises. The de­signs and colours are very lim­ited.

Be­ing a pre­mium brand, each item comes with a heavy price tag. A sim­ple cot­ton, long-sleeved t-shirt, for in­stance, is priced at RM129.

The Ariani Ac­tive range is ex­pen­sive.
