June Moon Hippie Pants

4 reviews

Strawberry Moon is upon us- the super moon of the summer on June 14th. This piece is a dedication to all things summer and all things deep, rich, and lovely.

$ 138.00 USD
  •  INGREDIENTS: 88% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 12% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT:  High waisted, wide leg throughout, tiered fabric at calf, and a slightly cropped leg. 28" inseam for all sizes.

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!

 

Dyed shades of teal and spruce. Strawberries and a crescent moon printed on back waist with water based ink on front. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage.

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!

Purusha People June Moon Hippie Pants Review

Magical

I am in love w these and the matching top. The fabric is even better than it has ever been. Purusha must have figured out the eco-elastic. Every time there is a new drop I almost have to pray it isn't my colour or print because then I have no choice but to purchase. If you love being comfortable, are a hippie at heart and are into sustainability you will not be disappointed, you will however become addicted to this feeling of fabric on your body. :)

So Comfortable & Flowy.

I get compliments constantly when I wear these. They are so soft and so very comfortable. The one thing that I wish, was that they were a bit smaller/tighter around the waist/hips. I am a true large and I would have sized down to a medium for this style only. I know this style is supposed to be more flowy but that is just my preference. Everything else is exactly how I wanted it.

So in love with these! Perfect length and fit!

I wear Purusha Peopel every day and I think these pants and the matching top are my new favorite pieces for sure!

Beautiful

These pants are so comfy, flowy and soft! I have received so many compliments in them because you don’t see a lot of bright turquoise tye-dye hippie pants around. The little strawberry print on the back is the cutest.
