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.

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!
Our clothing is special. It's inspired by the magic and awe of nature and the seasons, but beyond that it's as ethical and sustainable as possible. Purusha People is made in the USA, plant-based, nontoxic, manufactured safely and fairly paid, and 10% of profits going to a unique charity with every drop. We know our stuff is expensive, but that's because it's made the right way. It's worth the investment in ourselves, in our planet, and in future generations.
Our creations might look dainty and even reserved for special occasions, but they're truly designed for no fuss, everyday wear. As a mom with two young children and two spunky dogs that lives in comfy clothes, I can't be bothered with spending lots of money on clothes that I won't wear often and that won't hold up over time. I've worn our clothing throughout pregnancies, breastfeeding, hiking, running, yoga, and everything in between. You can also just throw your pieces in the wash without special treatment.
If your Purusha doesn't hold up for you, I promise to always repair or replace it, no questions asked. I adore our creations and stand behind them! I respect you and your support more than I can say.
