Stuff You Should Know
We believe plastic does not belong on our bodies! Our clothing is meant to be playful in. Whether it's hiking, yoga, running all over town, going out, staying in, sleeping, we exist so you can look put together but still feel super comfy. We want to live in our clothes 24/7, therefore will not compromise in them being made from anything but plant-based materials for the safety of our bodies and the planet.
Purusha is a Sanskrit word that literally means man, and philosophically means the soul or breath of the cosmos. We feel it is our duty as a yoga brand to make clothing that aligns with ahimsa, or non-violence to ourselves, our fellow human, animals, and the planet. This is why our creations are sustainable, ethical, and inclusive.
Lenzing Austria certified tencel, we call it Forest Fiber! It's made from trees grown on purposeful tree farms in Eastern Europe (no old growth trees), and manufactured in solar powered facilities. Spandex for stretch, which is a petrofiber, however we try to keep the percentage in our fabric less than 10%. GOTS certified low impact dyes, water treated and discharged responsibly in Los Angeles. Water based inks.
How It's Made:
Cut and sewn in small family owned shops in Los Angeles where seamstresses and seamsters make $15-$30/hr. Dyed in a responsible dye house dedicated to low impact dyes only and not dyeing synthetics. Screen printed in a clean and safe print shop with water-based ink only.
Sustainability is a journey that never ends. We are dedicated to always improving, while remaining transparent about the process.
Our packaging is plastic free. We use 100% post consumer recycled paper materials that are compostable and biodegradable. They're super thick and easy to reuse. We don't use "polybags", those clear plastic bags most clothing comes in, we use 100% recycled brown paper bags and paper tape.
Going Carbon Negative:
All shipping and production emissions are currently offset via carbon credits.
With every drop we choose a new charity to donate to. We've donated to Prison Yoga, Clean Clothes Campaign, Kiva, UN Refugee Agency, Feed America, The Little Guild Animal Shelter, Chrysalis, Ocean Conservancy, Trees For The Future, and many more!
We Won't Stop:
We are absolutely dedicated to sustainability, and endlessly passionate about people, the planet, and doing better. We will NEVER stop working to improve our products and our process!
With love, gratitude, and respect,
