It's finally here! After about a year of buying back our customer's synthetic, used yoga leggings, we've collected enough to begin making our recycled yoga mat bags! (Crotch not included LOL!) This is our very first one!
We decided the best way to make better use of unwanted plastic leggings, rather than them going to a landfill, was to create something useful and beautiful, and also not something to be washed or worn often to prevent further spreading of microplastics. A yoga mat bag just made perfect sense :)
This beautiful floral bag is two of a kind, and made from four pairs of polyester yoga leggings. The inside is 100% organic black hemp canvas, to make the bag extra sturdy and of course, totally natural. It features a heavy duty metal zipper pocket, and an external pocket. The bag is hand sewn by Nadya in her home in Twentynine Palms, California.
You might think the price tag is high for materials that are recycled, but the organic hemp inside, buying back leggings, and paying Nadya a living wage does NOT come cheap, as it shouldn't. Thank you SO MUCH for supporting us as we try to keep plastic off our bodies and out of landfills! XOXO
I absolutely love my new bag. I’ve been carrying around the same bag for a few years now. When I got the notification about the new bag made from leggings I knew I had to snag it. The shape is perfect. Most bags comes in the same shape to hold your mat. However, this one is shaped differently. It holds my mat perfectly and has a front pocket to hold my phone, keys, water bottle and even my clutch. Just like every think else made by PP it’s buttery soft. It’s spacious, stretchy, stylish and just overall super comfortable to carry. I absolutely love my new bag! Thanks Purusha People for being amazing and my go to brand for all things yoga
