“The purpose was to make the perfect tights that could be used for everything - yoga, weight training, running, cruising around town, at the office - you name it, we’ve tried it in Sculpture! Hell, we’ve even surfed in them.”
Where did the Inspiration come from?
We started this project because we wanted to create the ‘perfect’ tights. Combining both the shaping and compression effects in the same style. With the strength, flexibility and functional versatility to be used for everything - yoga, weight training, running, cross-fit, around town, at the office.
From this jumping off point, and using his vast experience of the textile industry, Carl-Axel (owner of Casall), started his search for the perfect fabric. “We made a lot of different tests and trials to find the functional fabric, pattern construction and desired fit”. As with all our fabric innovations, Carl-Axel has been deeply involved from the beginning and his knowledge of textile properties and performance has been influential in the product development.
We wanted to create a pair of tights that would both help shape and support the body and muscles - making a pair of tights that gave a light compression feeling while sculpting the body and emphasizing a woman’s natural curves.
