Founders Dave Spandorfer and Mike Burnstein are competitive runners, who were discussing how even the smallest sip of water can make a big difference during a race. This conversation between friends became the idea for Janji, which means ‘promise’ in Malay. It’s a way for runners to give back through their everyday training.
This socially responsible running apparel is sleek and durable. The distinctive geometric pattern—from hats and headbands to jackets and tights—is called Masai, and is inspired by traditional Tanzanian art.
Masai apparel is Janji’s flagship pattern, and proceeds from the sale of each item will go to MSABI, a nonprofit that operates deep-water well projects throughout Tanzania. Only 47% of the rural population there has access to safe water, and your purchase can help provide a person with clean water for up to 3 years.
Wear Janji on your next jog, and your runner’s high will have an extra feel-good boost of energy.
