Cedar Shroom Yoga Top

3 reviews
$ 68.00 USD

Mother Earth has taken a beating. For millions of years she shucked off icy glaciers and comet strikes before finding her balance and spinning on without complaining. How did she do it? Every organism chipped in of course. Let's start with the way she cycles fresh water from icy mountain streams to ocean shores. Rain pours down mountains filling streams and lakes, giving us gorgeous sights like Crater Lake and Yellowstone Falls. Not bad for step one. The rivers wind down black mountains and green plains emptying into the sea, mixing with salt water and keeping salinity at a safe level for ocean life, for the seals of Monterey, CA diving for fish. Colossal thirsty clouds suck water back up again and gush down on the hills and peaks, restarting the process.

What does this have to do with mushrooms? Well, these tiny fungi have their own part in the cycle of life. They break down dead organic matter and redistribute it back into soil, feeding nearby plant life and cleaning the area of the past. They’re the unsung heroes of the dirt. Yeah, it's not as glamorous as beaches and waterfalls, but they do their part every second of the day. And maybe that's why we want to sport these little fungi. If millions of them can work in unison fixing up Mother Earth without complaining, maybe we can do the same.

 

  • 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. 
  • FIT: "Supportive enough that you don't need a bra." Double layered. 
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Marbled caramel brown and cedar with cutie creamy chocolate colored 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.
  • PLEASE NOTE!: The top and bottom for this set are not exactly the same shade as they were dyed in different batches. The top is lighter and the leggings are a bit richer. They look beautiful together and their differences make them more unique to wear as a set!

Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Things can only be made cheaply when either someone is underpaid or it's completely automated. Unfortunately, machines haven't taken over all labor yet. So in the meantime we pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $5 for Forever 21 to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $68 dollar top, profit may be $30-40 which then must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping containers, freight charges), taxes, and payroll. Our end of the day profit is closer to $3-6. If we did this for the money, we'd be in the wrong industry. We do this to make an amazing garment you'll love for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - Never. Nothing gold can stay. Each piece is specially designed for the vibe and spirit of the season. Once it's gone, it's gone!

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

A - We only work with small family owned shops employing 8-10 people paying well above minimum wage in Los Angeles, CA.


Q - Is it sustainable and organic?

A - Anyone who claims sustainability while producing a product is greenwashing, intentional or not. We are responsible. To be truly sustainable we should all be wearing undyed, unisex, 100% recycled fabric scraps, government issued uniforms for 5-10 years at a time. While we are not that, we are much, much better than most of the alternatives out there. Our fabric is 99% closed loop, low plastic, made with fair wages, GOTS certified dyed, water based inked, and we donate money to a new charity every month. We will never stop seeking more ways to be make a cleaner and more beautiful piece of clothing!

Purusha People Cedar Shroom Yoga Top Review
01/16/2022

For when you want to feel like a nymph goddess...

When I want to feel grounded, I wear this top. When I want to remember my wild roots and reconnect more deeply with them, I wear this top. When I want to feel like a nymph goddess, I wear this top! The design becomes a mantra; a part of my yoga practice, every bit as meaningful as the intention I set for myself as I join my hands in anjali mudra. When I practice yoga, I pay attention to what I am inviting into my space; I roll out my mat with care, light incense or diffuse oil, and put on something comfy. Why shouldn't that last step be every bit as mindful as everything else I do to prepare for my practice? Purusha People is about adorning your temple in that which is LIVING. Forest fibres that BREATHE with you. I've tried many "activewear" garments, and let me let you: nothing wears like Purusha. Both in terms of durability and comfort. I LIVE in my Purusha People clothing and it looks as gorgeous and vibrant as the day I pulled it out of it's recycled envelope when it arrived on my doorstep. Wearing living fibres just FEELS DIFFERENT. You won't know until you try it and feel the difference for yourself. You'll never go back to "normal" activewear.

So pretty

I am always wearing one of these tops. They are so soft and the mushrooms are my favorite. I also love the marble effect with the browns. In another review I said they were a bit difficult to breastfeed but after trying a few more times, I want to take that back! They are super easy to breastfeed from the bottom. I think I was just being lazy from being braless so long!
