Redwood Moon Eucalyptus High Waist Leggings
We aren't sure how safe it is to wear polyester while exercising. Polyester is made from crude oil. It's plastic and bad for the environment. Recycled plastic is still plastic. Activewear made from eucalyptus is superior in every way- it outperforms synthetic activewear by being lighter, cleaner, and healthier. Let your skin breathe again.
- Our high waist leggings are hand sewn with seamless active stitching, and feature a diamond gusset and a hidden pocket in the back waistband large enough to hold an iPhone.
- Handmade from sustainable tencel from eucalyptus trees, organic cotton, and spandex. Hand dyed redwood brown with hand-printed moons in white non-toxic water-based ink.
- Nicole is wearing size S, standard length and is 5’8”, 27” waist, 36” hip.

If you're like me and you're trying to live a cleaner life and support sustainable, ethical fashion but you have a tight budget, I know the pain staking debate that goes into the purchase of each slow fashion item. You want to be sure that's the item is something you'll use for a long time because of the cost and you're trying to purchase responsibly. Well I'm here to tell you their offerings are definitely worth the price, and afterpay makes these items a little more accessable to people that struggle financially like me. These are my new favorite leggings, they are very soft, great for yoga in, and the fit is perfect. These out class all my old plastic leggings I'm transitioning away from. My only issue was the "redwood" color looked a little more orange-brown in the pictures but it's a little different in person but I don't mind, I like the brighter orange too, just wasynt what I was expecting. The issue could have also been my phone's display, I'm not sure.
Love these leggings. They are perfectly high waisted and pair well with the tops sold here! My only issue is that I thought they would be a little thicker than they are. But I think that is because I'm used to synthetic leggings. After I got past that, they are my go-to leggings. Since there is a little less fabric than I'm used to, it feels more breathable and the material is incredibly soft. The print kind of cracked away in mine as I stretch but when I am in a normal resting state the print does not look cracked it is just when I stretch that area. Doesn't bother me too much as long as they don't chip which I haven't seen!
I'm not joking when I say that I. LIVE. IN. THIS. SET. I literally wear it every single day. I get really itchy on my bum and legs when I wear spandex (or even tights!) and never fully understood why, but I realized it was probably whatever it was made out of, like polyester (plastic), nylon, spandex. Yes, these have a very small percentage of spandex in them, but you can FEEL the difference. It's also incredible how everything is made to order in batches and I swear that you can feel the love in them. I've never been so happy with a clothing purchase and I hope others will choose to purchase as well! It's worth the money indefinitely.
I am hooked - I will only be buying eco-friendly, eucalyptus blend fabrics from now on. Fits like a dream, so soft, well made and such a nice color. I'm in love!
