Juniper Moon Eucalyptus High Waist Leggings
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR THEM?
Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your Juniper Moon leggings protect your body from yucky chemicals and save the earth from microplastic.
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE AWESOME
Pants made from a tree are a beautiful thing! Our Juniper Moon leggings are crafted from eucalyptus tree wood pulp so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. Don't worry though, eucalyptus feels like silk and doesn't at all resemble tree bark ;) The organic cotton is certified organic and fair trade OEKO TEX (fancy speak for it's awarded for being ethical and pesticide-free).
*NEW! Choose your legging thickness! Brought by popular demand, we now offer our leggings in a single layer for warmer weather and more breathability (regular price and returnable), or doubled layered for cooler temps and if you have any concerns about opacity (for $25 more and eligible for exchange only).
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
Being plant-based our leggings might feel lighter and thinner than your typical thick and stuffy polyester legging. Some people say they're like not wearing any pants at all! Which is great when you're sweating and moving, no one has time for pants that feel like... too much pants! Also, they do contain 6% spandex, which is a petroleum-based ingredient. Without it, your leggings wouldn't stretch and no one- you or the planet- would benefit from a product nobody wants because we refused to add a stretchy element to it. Until we can all exercise in loose woven flood pants and tunics (unlikely), or until someone invents a plant-based stretch fiber (yay science!), this is the best we've got. So much better than 100% plastic though, don't you think?
WHERE DO THEY COME FROM + WHO MADE THEM?
Our eucalyptus is sourced from sustainable tree farms in Austria and neighboring countries, where the trees are grown for fibers so you don't have to fret about deforestation. The organic cotton is certified fair trade from India. The eucalyptus and organic cotton are knitted into fabric in Canada. Nadya, my best friend, and my super talented seamstress, hand sews each and every piece in her home in the desert in Southern California. I (Hayley), hand dye and hand screen print everything in my basement in Northwest Connecticut. (Very, very glamorous, I know!)
66% eucalyptus tencel, 28% organic cotton, 6% spandex, 100% cotton threads, low impact dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
These leggings fit with a high waist that's elastic free and can be folded over. They feature a diamond gusset (vagina protector so you're comfy when you move!), flat athletic seams, and a pocket at the back waistband large enough to hold your iPhone. No itchy tags because the tags are sewn inside the pocket! The inseam is magic, it can easily stretch from 28"-35"!
One of my other BFF's is modeling the clothing- it’s Nicole! She's wearing size S, standard length and is 5’8”, 27” waist, 36” hip. Our leggings run true to size.
THE LAST BIT OF SUPER IMPORTANT INFORMATION (I KNOW, IT'S A LOT, SORRY!)
This piece ships in 4-8 weeks because we don't carry ANY inventory. Don't freak out, I PROMISE it will be worth the wait. Think of it as bespoke yoga wear, custom made for you. But, why?! Cue crying emoji. Because: 1. We can't afford to stock multiple items in 9 sizes for 40 different styles (we're handmade y'all, not a factory!), and 2. It's better for the environment to produce less and not make a bunch of stuff without knowing if anyone will ever buy it. The top harm to the environment in the fashion industry is throwaway fashion, so we're avoiding this all together by only bringing clothes into this world that people really want. By the time your clothes are done you will be amazed at your patience and probably feel pretty proud that Amazon Prime hasn't destroyed your ability to wait for something special! Go you!
I love Purusha People and everything they stand for! Their items are amazing quality and some of the softest leggings I own. Be patient! I ordered my items end of March and did not receive them until mid-June. With that being said, COVID has obviously played a part in that but the fact that all of the items are handmade to order is so impressive and worth the wait. I would definitely recommend Purusha and plan on buying more!
I love the leggings, the material, the dyed pattern, and how high waisted they are! I am about 5'10" and 140 lbs and a medium fits me well. I say well bc the leggings are not totally tight in the crotch area which is a curse and a blessing. I have this issue with many leggings so it is my body type and not the product's fault. Side note, they smell amazing and come with a lovely handwritten note! Will definitely be buying again in the future.
These leggings are it. Not only are they beautiful to look at they are beautifully and thoughtfully made. The quality is high and I see myself wearing these for years to come. The eucalyptus is breathable and super soft. Perfect for hot days. My absolute favorite thing about all Purusha leggings is the diamond shaped pattern in the crotch area rather than a straight seem. It’s makes and absolutely world of difference especially when doing yoga.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. The pants fit so well, I’m 5’6 118 pounds and bought a small. They are thicker than expected, so well made and so comfortable. They are great for summer as they are very breathable. The waist band is very flattering.
These just might be my new favorite leggings! They are super soft and stretchy but not see-through, and they don't ride up or slide down when I work out and do yoga. I also loved how they came with a personalized thank-you card and smelled really good when I opened the package. They are super comfortable and high-quality overall, and nothing beats the sustainability factor!!!
