Wild Ginger Moon Leggings

3 reviews
$ 98.00 USD

Native Americans used wild ginger to treat headaches, intestinal problems/indigestion, arthritis, and colic. I chose this warm mulberry shade to subtly heal the tummy of worries and stress with it's comforting earthiness, and elevate the spirit with tiny serenity blue moon phases to remind us always this is only a phase.

 

  • 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: Our heavier weight for bottoms, these leggings are warm without getting hot. High waist that hits just at the navel and a hidden pocket in the waistband. Diamond gusset.
  • WE CARE DEEPLY: Solid wild ginger color with serenity blue moons on both the front left thigh and the back right thigh printed 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!

Soooo comfy and super cute!!

I really really love these cloths! My first pair of leggings and can’t believe how soft and comfortable, I love how high waisted they are because it really covers my mom belly. I’m 5”1 and I’m wearing a Small.

Purusha People Wild Ginger Moon Leggings Review

Perfect fit and feel

The color of these leggings is gorgeous, and the delicate light blue moon phases are a nice touch. These fit to perfection and are so comfy it feels almost like I'm not wearing anything at all. I'm very sensitive to fabric textures and have a hard time finding leggings that don't irritate me. Purusha People leggings are the only ones I can wear, and they feel GOOD. I got these in my usual size S. (For reference, I am 5'3" and ~100 lbs). The quality of these leggings is also fantastic. They feel very durable, and the stitching is beautifully done. All of my previous PP purchases have held up really well in the wash (+ air dry) and almost look like the day I received. them. It's comforting to know that these leggings will, too, and that I will have them for a very long time. As usual, many thanks to Hayley and her team :) You are making a true impact on the lives of others and in the world!

Beautiful Color & Perfect Fit

I am always so impressed with the offerings from Purusha People. These leggings are so beautiful, the color is so vibrant and the small blue moon phases really pop. As always the fabric so soft and comfy. I am obsessed with these leggings! They pair perfectly with the Wolf Hoodie.
