Q - Why is it so expensive?

A - Clothes can only be made cheaply if people and/or the planet are being exploited. In 2022, the reality is we are extracting limited resources from the planet to make limitless things. The more plastic clothing made in slave like conditions overseas we support with our hard earned dollars, the more we tell brands that YES, we are down with limitless consumption. When we pay workers a living wage and consider that the planet cannot survive at the pace we are overproducing, clothing can't be inexpensive. We need so much less than we're told we need, therefore do not need to buy dozens of $6 items. It's always better to save up for ethical pieces. (This message is to those with some disposable income, not to those living in poverty.)

We pay a premium for high quality fabrics and labor. While an average top may cost $2.50 for Shein to make, we pay anywhere from $30-$50. That means on a $78 dollar top, profit may be $30-40, which must cover operating expenses (website fees, shipping, advertising, freight charges), taxes, and payroll to our fairly paid employees. 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 heirloom piece you'll treasure for years.


Q - When are sold out items restocked?

A - We don't make the same thing twice, and this is why: our creations are art! An artist would not repaint the same piece over and over. And for you, our beloved customer, this means your piece is very unique and bespoke. No one else will have it. This is how we used to make clothes long ago-- items just for you that are meant for you and not mass produced to maximize profits.

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 true 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, made in the USA, 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!

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!

Super cute

I love these so much, the colors are unique and they’re super comfy as always. I love working out and doing yoga in them, but they’re so comfy you could even just lounge around.

Full Worm Forest Fiber Dyed Short

This morning I lit my incense, did some basic yoga poses and mentally thanked the team at Purusha People for making these shorts. I initially thought they were too big, but I love the flexibility I have in these. I’d prefer another inch on the inseam but I have thicccc thighs, so that’s just me. I’ll be buying more in the future :)

Amazing! Very High-Waisted!

I think I anxiously refreshed my computer a hundred times waiting for the clock to hit the exact time of the drop for these! I was so happy when I knew I had snagged a pair (meant to be ✨)! I NEVER buy shorts without trying them on. I'm short (5'2) with not a very large waist but pretty thick thighs! I also have a very short torso, and more length in my legs haha! Shorts are always a challenge, if they fit my waist, they dig into my thighs (which can be especially painful when sitting). These shorts don't dig in! They fit so comfortably, and they are absolutely beautiful! Pictures don't do justice. I will say that they do come up pretty high on me (again short torso struggles) , so they are a tiny bit loose at the waist. When I wear the moon top (also a faveee of mine and I want like 100 more colors!), it fits snuggly over the top of the shorts so they're in place, so it's definitely not an issue! I may try a medium though next time, to see if they are more snug up top, but not too snug in the thighs! (For reference I'm usually a 30 in jeans) Overall though, I am a Purusha People Girl for LIFEE. Worth the extra $$ to feel good in what you wear, and good ABOUT what you wear. Afterpay is also a great option for some of us who need to split the cost up a bit sometimes, so thankful for that option when drops come out that call to me. ❤️
