The power of life causes the snake to shed its skin, just as the moon sheds its shadow. The serpent sheds its skin to be born again, as the moon its shadow to be born again. They are equivalent symbols. Sometimes the serpent is represented as a circle eating its own tail. That’s an image of life. Life sheds one generation after another, to be born again. The serpent represents immortal energy and consciousness engaged in the field of time, constantly throwing off death and being born again. There is something tremendously terrifying about life when you look at it that way. And so the serpent carries in itself the sense of both the fascination and the terror of life.

Furthermore, the serpent represents the primary function of life, mainly eating. Life consists in eating other creatures. You don’t think about that very much when you make a nice-looking meal. But what you’re doing is eating something that was recently alive. And when you look at the beauty of nature, and you see the birds picking around — they’re eating things. You see the cows grazing, they’re eating things. The serpent is a traveling alimentary canal, that’s about all it is. And it gives you that primary sense of shock, of life in its most primal quality. There is no arguing with that animal at all. Life lives by killing and eating itself, casting off death and being reborn, like the moon. This is one of the mysteries that these symbolic, paradoxical forms try to represent.

  • INGREDIENTS: 88% forest fiber from acacia, eucalyptus, poplar, pine, spruce, beech, birch, and maple trees grown on tree farms in Eastern Europe, 12% spandex for stretch. 
  • FIT: High waisted, extra wide flare, v-waist to flatter the hips and waist, diamond gusset at the yoni, and a 32" inseam for all sizes. If you need a shorter inseam, please get them hemmed at a local tailor! This supports a local business, is inexpensive, and ensures your clothing will fit you at it should. As we grow we plan to introduce long and short lengths, but we are not there yet.
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Dyed by hand shades of warm grey, taupe brown, and sunrise orange. Silver moon phase snake and white twinkles printed with water based ink on right pocket. Cut, sewn, dyed, and printed in downtown Los Angeles by small family owned shops where creators are paid more than minimum wage. *Please note: Our pieces are dyed by hand, and vary from piece to piece. The tops and bottoms were dyed in separate batches and may not be identical in coloring. This is a sign of a handmade item, and makes your pieces special. We are not a mass produced brand.*

    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!

    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 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, 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!

      Comfy, cute, retro vibe

      Really really really love these! I think these are the best bell bottom yoga pants! Also, definitely a cool style too wear as a outfit as well. Being a mom, I really really love the high waste because I’m a little self conscious about my belly and it’s nice too feel cute. I don’t have too worry about pulling up my pants and well if I pull them up too high them I have kamel toe. Sorry, just being honest and I feel like other moms out there could relate. ;) so it’s great I don’t have too worry about that problem. Love that the pants stay in place. I’m wearing a XS and a Small would fit too. I’m 5”1 and im around 115ish? Sorry haven’t weighed myself in awhile,
