Our bodies desire moonlight. With our eyes so frequently on screens and being indoors with artificial lighting, we need the calming light of the moon. Bathing in the moon provides the gentle yin light to settle our fiery yang heat. May our Moon Drops set allow you to heal under the light of the full moon.

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. 

Light scandinavian blue with copper and peach moon drops 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.

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!

Q - Where is it made and who makes it?

Purusha People Moon Drops Forest Fiber Leggings Review
02/17/2021

In LOVE.

While not only trying to heal inside of me, I am working hard on also loving, strengthening and giving time to my body and it’s needs. These clothes not only support my body, but they feel AMAZING. We need to be more aware of not only what goes in our body but ON our body as well. So happy to support this small business and will continue to do so.

Soft and super comfortable leggings!

I have the Moon Drops Forest Fiber crop top and leggings. I really appreciate that the top is fully double lined/very thick. I generally dislike wearing bras, and with such a supportive top, it is not necessary. Overall, they feel like butter on my body! I wear this set both to lounge around and in exercise. It has held up well so far and I follow washing info strictly. I like that the leggings are long enough to be around my ankles and still fit my crotch well, not pulling around weirdly or giving me camel-toe (unless I pull them up too high). I would say that this color does not work well with dark or colorful underwear. It is ever-so-slightly transparent. This doesn't bother me, but could be important for someone else!

Softest leggings yet!

Wow these are so soft and totally comfortable and your skin thanks you when wearing them because the fabric really is nice. However, they do not pass the yoga “bending over” test and are in fact pretty see through. It isn’t a big deal while at home but If I was out and about bending over, I probably would want something a less see through.
