They’re finally here! After about a year of buying back our customer's synthetic, gently used yoga leggings, we've collected enough to begin making our recycled yoga leggings yoga mat bags! (Crotch not included LOL!) See if you spot your leggings!
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 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. (The last image is to show the size and shape of the bag.)
You might think the price tag is high for materials that are recycled, but the organic hemp inside, buying back leggings, a quality metal zipper, 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 adore my Purusha People Marigold yoga mat bag! I love that it is upcycled and I feel a connection to my sister yogis who once wore the leggings from which it was crafted. Speaking of crafted - it is so well made that I have no doubt it will last my lifetime. The design and stitching is impeccable. I use the large pocket for my yoga towel and the zippered pocket for my keys, lip balm, and other essentials. My Marigold bag makes me happy every time I see it!
so happy you like it kit!
