Seconds Spring Moon Organic Leggings Size S
* There is a dye splotch on the back hip.
WHEN SHOULD YOU WEAR THEM?
Whenever you would wear your old school plastic polyester workout leggings. Your Indigo leggings protect your body from yucky chemicals and save the earth from microplastic.
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE AWESOME
Pants made from organic cotton and organic indigo are a beautiful thing! Indigo leggings are crafted from pesticide-free cotton so you don't have to worry about exercising and sweating in something synthetic and chemical-ridden. Also, they are thick! No worries about see-throughness here. On top of this pure and all-natural goodness is... the INDIGO DYE! OMG, let me tell you about the magic of indigo! It's a plant dye with a rich cultural tradition (it goes back thousands of years), and it's so safe that when I'm through dyeing it I use what's left to fertilize our garden. It's pure magic in every way, and you can just relax and enjoy these leggings knowing every inch of them is organic and pure. If you're looking for the holy grail of sustainable yoga leggings, these are it!
WHY THESE LEGGINGS ARE SLIGHTLY LESS AWESOME
Because these leggings 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 (or dye indigo outdoors as the weather allows!) in Northwest Connecticut. (Very, very glamorous, I know!)
92% organic cotton and 8% spandex, 100% cotton threads, organic indigo dye, water-based non-toxic ink.
BORING (BUT IMPORTANT!) INFORMATION
These leggings fit with a high waist that's elastic-free. They feature a diamond gusset (vagina protector so you're comfy when you move!), and a pocket at the back waistband large enough to hold your iPhone. No itchy tags because the tags are sewn inside the pocket!
It's me, Hayley, modeling the clothes! I am wearing size XS standard length (so I can pull them over my heels!) and I am 5’1”, 26” waist, 35” hip.
