THE DESIGNER'S PRINT INSPIRATION:
I hate to admit it, but as much as I love plants I do not have a green thumb. Someone recommended I try succulents 'cuz "they're super easy to care for" and after a quick google search I was stunned by how exotic and beautiful they are. Alas, my poor succulent suffered through a near-drowning experience and then couldn't cope with being left for too long to dry out. For the well-being of plants everywhere I should no longer have any in my personal care, however, to satisfy my wish to be surrounded by greenery I will print plants on tights I can wear, everywhere!
IN-PRODUCTION: These are currently being made and will be ready to ship mid-end July, however you can order now to reserve your size before they arrive!
A ton of love and care is put into every detail, from what you get to what you give back with each purchase. Read on for a full description of all the feel-good features.
WHAT YOU GET
- Feather-light material: These shorts will be made in our feather-weight material for a barely-there feeling.
- No-slip fit: We designed a grippy elastic for the inside waistband that prevents them from slipping while running, bending or jumping.
- Comfortable waistband: The waistband is made from super light and stretchy material - you won't feel like an encased sausage, we promise.
- Two pockets: Conveniently placed at the side-waist, for keys, cards and energy gels - and smaller phones will fit, too.
- Flattering fit: The 4-way stretch compression material smooths and supports.
- Anti-camel toe: Our unique crotch fit doesn't crowd your lady bits - a.k.a. no camel toe.
- H20 friendly: Our tights won't get heavy when wet and they dry really fast, so you can wear them for running, hot yoga, SUP, under your ski pants and more...
WHAT YOU GIVE
- Reduce waste: There are approximately 8 recycled plastic bottles in every pair, certified by the Global Recycling Standard.
- Fair wages: The seamstresses who sew our products earn a fair wage.
- Plant a Tree: We plant a tree in British Columbia for every order, in partnership with One Tree Planted. A fully mature tree will sequester approximately 48lbs of CO2 per year!
- 1% For the Planet: As a member of 1% For The Planet, we're committed to donating 1% of our total annual revenue (not just profit) to environmental initiatives.
- $1 For A Teenage Girl: We donate $1 from every purchase to help a teenage girl attend Girl In The Wild wilderness and leadership camps.
- Eco-conscious: These tights are coated with an all-natural anti-bacterial fabric treatment made from seashells recycled from the restaurant industry and certified by the EPA.
- Eco-friendly printing process: Our graphics are transferred onto the material using recycled paper via a process that does not waste dye nor require the use of any harsh chemicals.
- Recycled content: All hang-tags, packing slips and tissue paper are 100% recycled and recyclable. Our boxes are 60% recycled and are recyclable.
ABOUT THE FIT
- HIGH-WAISTED: These high-waisted leggings fit to the smallest part of the waist for a smooth and flattering fit under a t-shirt or with a sports bra.
- ANTI-CAMEL TOE: The crotch area is designed to sit away from your lady bits, which helps to prevent camel toe - if you're a new mom you will love how these take the pressure off a sensitive area!
- NO - SLIP FIT: As a compression short with an inner grippy elastic, these should be put on like a pair of nylons - scrunch them down and slide them up, don't just pull from the top. You want to feel the stretch going around the leg, but not pulling down from the bottom. When put-on correctly, the grippy elastic works wonders to keep them from slipping when running, bending and jumping. Please note that in cold weather they may slip slightly so the trick is to warm-up, reset and they'll stay-up!
- INSEAM LENGTH: See size chart.
ABOUT THE FABRIC
Our RUN-LIGHT shorts are made from...
- Our ECO-FEATHER material.
- 200gsm light-weight 79% recycled polyester / 21% spandex.
- Silky-smooth and feather-light with a matte finish.
- Long-lasting and looks new wash after wash.
- An all-natural anti-bacterial treatment made from seashells.
- The trifecta of technical must-haves; compression, wicking and quick-dry.
CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Machine wash cold gentle cycle, tumble dry low or hang to dry. ***Important*** Please cold water soak before first wear to set the ink. Sweating in the shorts prior to soaking them in cold water could cause the ink to shift. Once the ink is set this will not occur.
PRODUCT LIMITATIONS: Due to the graphics being printed onto lightweight white material it is highly recommended this product only be worn with solid nude or light coloured undergarments. Darker, brighter and patterned undergarments will show through. The print is also a surface treatment, so it is best to avoid rubbing against abrasive surfaces that could wear off the ink and damage the material - please avoid sliding down rock faces, continuous contact with velcro and crawling on knees.
