Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your shorts protect your body from yucky chemicals and save the earth from microplastic.
Shorts made from a tree are a beautiful thing! Our shorts
s 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 shorts thickness! Brought by popular demand, we now offer our shorts 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 $20 more and eligible for exchange only).
Being plant-based our shorts 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?
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.
These shorts 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!
T-Age is wearing size S and is 5’11”, 34” bust, 25” waist, 35” hip.
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!
