Between The Worlds Eucalyptus Harem Joggers
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR THEM?
Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your harem joggers 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 harem joggers 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 ;)
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 5% 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 eucalyptus is knitted into fabric in Los Angeles, CA. 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!)
95% eucalyptus tencel and 5% spandex, 100% cotton threads, low impact dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
One of my customers called these pants elevated granny pants! They have a slightly dropped crotch, pockets, and a thin elastic at the waist. The elastic is below a few inches of fabric so you don’t have to worry about it pinching and pushing your skin up. They have cuffed ankles too!
My treasured mama friend and light-being, Robyn, is modeling! She's wearing size S, standard length and is 5’7”, 27” waist, 37” hip. Our pants 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!
Incredibly comfortable-thank you
These pants fit perfect and the fabric feels amazing. I had gone through a phase a while back of purchasing only natural fabrics, and had a lot of them turn out to not fit so well or hold their shape, but these pants feel so luxe when I put them on. Very satisfied.
