Mushrooms flourish and thrive in unlikely places, they decompose matter that is dead and done with its cycle in our land of the living. I created this print and color palette to remember that we can look to the shrooms in dark moments, to discover a rebirth from something we thought was lost and gone.
INGREDIENTS: 92% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 8% spandex for stretch.
Twilight blue gray with copper moons and shrooms printed with water based ink. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage.
These leggings are very soft & comfortable and the top of the waist comes just high enough to meet the bottom of their cropped bra tops. The color of these lean slightly more gray - I was expecting them to be a true navy blue, but still liked them enough to keep. The fabric has a lot of "give", so they're perfect if you want leggings that dont feel too constricting. These definitely show your rear if you're bending over, so something to keep in mind. (I usually pair it with a longer top or mostly wear at home). All in all, I think these are definitely worth it because you can feel good about supporting a small business that pays workers a fair wage and uses materials that are better for us!
I got this print on accident. I was new to the brand at the time so I wanted to get a S and M in the moon print. I learned I am in between a S and M so either works for me, though the band on the small is more snug but not terrible. I am 5'3" and 120lbs and carry my weight in my midsection for the most part (its unfair! lol) but I have to say even though it was more fitted at the band for me (size S), it was still comfortable. I walked my dogs for an hr in it and wore it sitting for long periods of time (I work from home). And it was comfortable and the fabric is what keeps me coming back for more. I said this in another review, I do wish the fabric was more opaque. Either make it double lined or Idk find a way to make the bottoms less see through, it does not pass the bend test, so look out for that. But for someone like me who is an amateur yogi and does like exercise its fine! And I ended up keeping the shroom bottoms and went back for the matching top :D
I'm officially addicted to everything Purusha! These leggings fit perfectly and are oh so comfy. All the designs are amazing. I need them all!
I do yoga and other exercise classes in my Twilight Shrooms Moon Forest Fiber Leggings, but I think this picture captures how I LIVE in them! Love the high waist and that I absolutely never have to adjust them, even during an active HIIT class. The material is soft, yet strong. I am 5' 8" and curvy and ordered a size large and it is perfect. Seriously don't want to take them off!
My second purchase with the matching bra. Soft and stretchy, beautiful color and great design. X
