WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR THEM?
Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your bells protect your body from yucky chemicals and save the earth from microplastic.
WHY THESE PANTS ARE AWESOME
Pants made from organic cotton are a beautiful thing! Our bells are crafted from pesticide-free cotton so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden.
WHY THESE PANTS ARE SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
They have a defect, for one. This is why they're marked down. The organic cotton shrunk much more than usual in our latest batch, and the inseam for these babies is measuring out to a cute 28". "Damn, that's short!", I said as I pulled some from the dye bath. BUT, how perfect if you're a shortie (like me), or like to wear bells like flood pants (which are in style, hallelujah!) They're are also more like a light to medium weight organic cotton. ALSO, the dyeing on these is slightly imperfect.
Because these pants 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, 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
This top is DOUBLE LAYERED! Yes, cap locks for this! I can't begin to tell you what a game-changer two layers of delicious plant-based goodness is! It's seamless on the inside so it's ultra-comfy and mildly compressive to give you support while still feeling relaxed. It's pretty much the dream top.
THE LAST BIT OF SUPER IMPORTANT INFORMATION (I KNOW, IT'S A LOT, SORRY!)
These are ready to ship! Woohoo!

Our clothing is special. It's inspired by the magic and awe of nature and the seasons, but beyond that it's as ethical and sustainable as possible. Purusha People is made in the USA, plant-based, nontoxic, manufactured safely and fairly paid, and 10% of profits going to a unique charity with every drop. We know our stuff is expensive, but that's because it's made the right way. It's worth the investment in ourselves, in our planet, and in future generations.
Our creations might look dainty and even reserved for special occasions, but they're truly designed for no fuss, everyday wear. As a mom with two young children and two spunky dogs that lives in comfy clothes, I can't be bothered with spending lots of money on clothes that I won't wear often and that won't hold up over time. I've worn our clothing throughout pregnancies, breastfeeding, hiking, running, yoga, and everything in between. You can also just throw your pieces in the wash without special treatment.
If your Purusha doesn't hold up for you, I promise to always repair or replace it, no questions asked. I adore our creations and stand behind them! I respect you and your support more than I can say.
