ABOUT KALSONI

KALSONI is a PURPOSE DRIVEN lifestyle brand committed to positively impacting the health and well-being of women and girls by providing activewear that is culturally and faith-based inclusive, EMBRACES their individuality, and truly REFLECTS their values of modesty. We want to ensure that women and girls who prefer a modest fit style can enjoy and engage in the outdoors, gym, sports, and any other activity with maximum comfort, functionality, and confidence. We aim to diversify the fashion and sports industry through our inclusive designs that adhere to individuals standards, beliefs, and faith. 

OUR WHY


We launched our brand with a mission to empower and encourage woman and girls to be physically active by providing activewear that respects their values of modesty and instills confidence.

 

We recognize that the current activewear and sportwear industry doesn't truly reflect those in our community who are among an underserved market- women and girls who prefer a modest fit. The activity and sportswear business still has a gap in the market, and those looking for a modest fit have few options. Women and girls struggle to find modest sportswear, which leads to lower physical activity involvement and confidence in their ability to achieve or enjoy exercise. The modest fashion market is currently $283 billion and is predicted to reach $360 billion by 2023. For young girls, however, there is no modest full-coverage fitness or sportswear readily available. For many women and girls like me, we are left with:

  1. Spending too much time shopping piecing outfits to create a modest and comfort fit
  2. Purchasing more oversized products for a comfort and loose-fit style
  3. Settling for whatever is in the closet and wearing everyday clothing

OUR SOLUTION

1Kalsoni

 

EVERY WOMEN AND GIRL SHOULD BE ABLE TO FREELY EXPRESS HER INDIVIDUALITY IN HER ACTIVEWEAR. BE WHO SHE IS  AND NOT COMPROMISE HER VALUES.


Our activewear are for all ages of women who prefer a modest fit. We developed a solution to this problem by collaboratively designing inclusive modest activewear with our community. We work closely with all ages of women to collectively design and create products that ensure that all needs are met.  Our first collection includes a versatile activewear top that can be worn in all activities from outdoors to everyday wear. We recognize and understand that modesty levels vary for every woman, so we created different styles to meet all fit preferences.

MORE THAN JUST A PRODUCT
Collectively impacting and inspiring our next generation

Beyond our products, we collaborate with local organizations to collectively impact the health and well-being of the next generation of girls by providing access to opportunities ranging from outdoor to tailored sport-specific activities. We are currently working with a number of organizations and athletes to provide product customization of modest activewear with their logo. We recently collaborated with a nationally recognized non-profit organization called Girl on the Run Minnesota to provide over 100 customized sports hijabs to their participants. Our brand strives to promote diversity, inclusion, and equal representation in the outdoor and fitness industries. We believe that we can have a greater impact by collaborating with organizations in our community whose missions are similar to ours and focus on the health and well-being of women and girls.

"GAME CHANGING "

“It’s amazing to have a modest friendly activewear that is local and designed and created by a Black Muslim woman.”

YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS TO US

We are growing and need additional funds to produce more products. In the US, only 2% of venture capital funding went to female-led startups. Black women make up only 0.6% of those who secure capital funding. Similarly, 72% of female founders reported that their number one barrier to starting a business is access to capital. THIS WHY WE NEED YOU. You can support our campaign by:

  1. Making a monetary contribution
  2. Purchasing a product under the “Reward” tab
  3. Spreading our story and brand by sharing this campaign with network

With your support, we'll be able to make modest activewear more accessible to women and girls and make fitness accessible to all! You can help us provide a gift of confidence to women and girls.
