Moon Bee Eucalyptus Harem Joggers XS + S + M + L
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 PANTS 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 PANTS ARE SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
Being plant-based our pants 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!
THE GOOD NEWS!
