  • Our Leggins

The brand was founded by Michelle in 2019 while being a mommy to a very active little girl.  She originally designed leggings for herself in order to complete her yoga teacher training and to enjoy her running without constantly having to tug on her leggings or to feel self-conscious.  The leggings design was a huge success, because of the comfort and the confidence it inspired in women. The bold colours and designs made exercising so much more exciting and motivating. The leggings were also designed with all shapes and sizes in mind and we hope to keep our clothing range this way.  The clothing range is made locally in Cape Town and not mass produced but lovingly sewed with each individual in mind.

Akima Active is more than just an active wear brand. Our mission is to inspire you to life you life to the fullest by embracing the Akima core values.

Our leggings are designed to offer you the most comfort possible even while doing intense exercise and understand that each woman’s body is built differently.

Each print is limited and new prints are launched every month. We custom make each pair per client order. Please choose the custom option if you need to order a different size band with a different size bottom or if you need a custom legging length or longer/shorter band length and we will contact you to discuss changes. We also offer maternity pants on request. You can choose the maternity option and we will contact you to discuss sizing.
