Shopping just got easier for athletic Muslim women in the United Kingdom. House of Fraser, a London-based department store, has begun selling athletic black unitards and black body suits with a separate black hijab. The athletic clothing items are created by Shorso UK.
“We are very proud of our achievements with House of Fraser and will be growing our range within the next few months," Jessica Robinson, Shorso UK's regional commercial director, told Al Arabiya .
“It is a pleasure to bring these products to the U.K. and internationally. … We enable people to be active, without compromise – that’s what makes us unique,”
Shorso UK's sports hijabs sell for between £9 and £12 ($13 to $18). The adult unitard and body suit sells between £36 and £40.
According to Shorso UK's website, the company specializes "in a range of modest clothing and sportswear at competitive prices. We inspire you to be active, without compromise."
The website also says that the sportswear "is ideal for various physical activities such as swimming, aerobics and gymnastics."
Shorzo UK's clothing items were already available via several online retailers and a store in Birmingham, UK, according to the company's website.
