Divination Organic Cotton Leggings
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR THEM?
Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your Divination leggings protect your body from yucky chemicals and save the earth from microplastic.
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE AWESOME
Pants made from organic cotton are a beautiful thing! Our Divination leggings are crafted from pesticide-free cotton so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. Also, they are thick! No worries about see-throughness here. This cut has a narrow elastic at the waist so they're the perfect leggings for running and CrossFit or HIIT workouts as they stay in place.
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
Because these leggings are only organic cotton, no eucalyptus, they are not as great for super sweaty workouts. They get heavier with sweat. But they freaking rock for cold-weather outdoor workouts, non-sweaty yoga, rocking climbing, and moderate exercise. Also, they do contain 8% spandex, which is a petroleum-based ingredient. Without it, your leggings wouldn't stretch and no one- you or the planet- would benefit from a product nobody wants because we refused to add a stretchy element to it. Until we can all exercise in loose woven flood pants and tunics (unlikely), or until someone invents a plant-based stretch fiber (yay science!), this is the best we've got. So much better than 100% plastic though, don't you think?
WHERE DO THEY COME FROM + WHO MADE THEM?
Our organic cotton is USA grown! The organic cotton is knitted into fabric in Los Angeles, CA. Nadya, my best friend, and my super talented seamstress, hand sews each and every piece in her home in the desert in Southern California. I (Hayley), hand dye and hand screen print everything in my basement in Northwest Connecticut. (Very, very glamorous, I know!)
92% organic cotton and 8% spandex, 100% cotton threads, low impact dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
These leggings fit with a mid-rise waist that has narrow elastic to keep them in place while you move.They feature a diamond gusset (vagina protector so you're comfy when you move!), and a pocket at the back waistband large enough to hold a credit card. No itchy tags because the tags are sewn inside the pocket!
One of my other BFF's is modeling the clothing- it’s Nicole! She's wearing size M, standard length and is 5’8”, 27” waist, 36” hip. These leggings run a little small.
THE LAST BIT OF SUPER IMPORTANT INFORMATION (I KNOW, IT'S A LOT, SORRY!)
This piece ships in 4-8 weeks because we don't carry ANY inventory. Don't freak out, I PROMISE it will be worth the wait. Think of it as bespoke yoga wear, custom made for you. But, why?! Cue crying emoji. Because: 1. We can't afford to stock multiple items in 9 sizes for 40 different styles (we're handmade y'all, not a factory!), and 2. It's better for the environment to produce less and not make a bunch of stuff without knowing if anyone will ever buy it. The top harm to the environment in the fashion industry is throwaway fashion, so we're avoiding this all together by only bringing clothes into this world that people really want. By the time your clothes are done you will be amazed at your patience and probably feel pretty proud that Amazon Prime hasn't destroyed your ability to wait for something special! Go you!
Amazing. They feel so good and look so pretty.
