Our Story

We believe that safe, sustainable, and transparent activewear is a nonnegotiable in 2020. The ingredients in our clothing should be as accessible and traceable as the food labels at our local health food store. While caring for our bodies during exercise, yoga, and meditation we should not, at the same time, be wearing clothing made by slaves that’s ridden with toxic chemicals. Our bodies and our planet deserve better than more plastic stuff. This is why Purusha exists: to create beautiful, plant-based activewear, and to educate the community on why plastic does not belong on our bodies.

Purusha (Sanskrit puruṣa पुरुष), is pronounced Puh-Roo-Shah. It means the soul within all beings, the life force that unites us, the spirit that pervades all living things. This word includes all beings, we are all Purusha People.
