🕊 Wear birds when you feel stuck, caged in, and limited. Birds symbolize freedom, expansiveness, and transcendence. Some cultures even believe birds to be divine souls reincarnate, and a connection to the spirit world. Girl, it's time to fly and reach for the stars! Nothing can hold you back from living the life you dream of!! 🕊

  • 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. 
  • FIT: The perfect mix of comfort and support, you'll never want to go back to bras! Double layered and luxurious. Madison is wearing size M and is 5'10", 34" bust, 29" waist, 40" hip.
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Black with white birds, stars and a moon printed on the front and back 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!

Purusha People The Transcendent Yoga Top Review
09/30/2021

Great for nursing

I am breastfeeding and could not find a nursing bra I liked. This top solved that problem for me. It offers great support and is extremely soft and comfortable. I was a 32DD prepregnancy and I don't even know what size I am now, but the support this top offers hold everything up in a very flattering way. I will say, as a note to those who have big boobs - I found that people have a hard time looking me in the eye when I wear this top ;D I put this on the second I opened the package and was sad when I had to take it off to wash it. I have already ordered a few more tops from purusha people because I don't want to go back to regular bras and uncomfortable, ill-fitting tops. TLDR: Best top ever. You won't regret buying it!

LOVE

I love the design, the color, the comfort, the fit, the materials, the creator and her vision - I love absolutely everything about Purusha People!! (FWIW this is my fourth bra top from here, I really need to work on my shopping impulse control - but at least I can feel good knowing both this company and these products are more eco-consciously-minded.)

Beautiful and comfortable

Love these tops for anything and everything. I hate constrictive bras, and these give me plenty of support even despite having a large chest. Slowly transitioning my wardrobe to more natural fabrics and loving it.
