After being tired of searching for sportswear that are both comfortable, practical and modest while training for a hike up Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa’s highest summit, the duo decided to start their own line.

The two have spent over a year creating and fine-tuning their ideas for loose-fitting active-wear with a designer, and are know crowd-sourcing funding to help create their clothe line. They are doing it through the famous kick-starter website Indiegogo and aim at raisin some QAR 55,000 ($15,000).

They said that any additional money raised beyond the QAR 55,000, will be invested in production, as well as the creation to a modest swimwear line. Anyone who donates will be able to enjoy first collection items on a discount price.

The first Oola Sports collection is said to feature non-slip breathable oola-sports-founderheadscarves, and loose and sweat-wicking tops that are lower than usual tops and have full-length sleeves.
