A note on sizing:
My garments are sublimated prints ( so printed onto a white fabric ) because of this sometimes you can see some white "grin" if the pant is too tight. I reccoment going up a size if in-between to avoid this. It isn't transparent, just seeing the white color of the base fabric!
Inseams and Fit:
* The Leggings inseam is 29 inches.
* The Capri inseam is 21 inches. The Capri fit tends to run a tad on the snug side, some customers prefer to size up.
* The Short inseam is 3 inches and features a rectangle gusset. The Short fits the same as my leggings
* The Bell is available in Regular inseam: 31 inches and Tall inseam: 34 inches ( I can do custom inseams by request but aren't returnable, If you would like a custom inseam on this cut please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to purchase. No extra charge but again, non-returnable )
* Note *
Currently The Short and The Bell are only available in S, M and L. This will change after I raise more money as I am entirely self funded and making patterns ( and paying folks fairly! ) takes some of that green stuff $$$ - I will be expanding as I want to be inclusive to all bodies! If you are one who's size isn't yet available please e-mail me at email@example.com so I can get you on my wait list!
Fabric and Fit:
Fit is a flattering high waist that won't roll down in your down dog. Waistband can be worn as a high waistband, or folded down to hug your hips.
My fabrics are recycled polyester and eco-polyester blends.
The fabric for the bell is a lighter weight and perfect for summer or hot practices and is made from Recycled Polyester. Using recycled materials helps reuse and keep out the tons of petroleum based materials that fill landfill and oceans each year. If every company started to reuse existing materials a huge impact would be made in our environmental impact.
The legging, capri and short fabric is more compressive; like a hug for your legs! It is made from EcoPoly fiber, this fiber is eco-friendly since it requires significantly less energy and water during manufacturing than conventional polyester
Both types of fabric wick moisture very well and flatter all the right places and body types.
Easy care. Hand or machine wash in cold water with a phosphate-free detergent and machine dry on Low ( or air dry for the environment! ) Do not bleach.
In addition I strive to be a waste free business. I save all my textile remnants and repurpose them into limited one of a kind creations, my packaging and whatever is too small I send back to be turned back into more recycled polyester fabric.
At ROOT I strive to be as earth friendly and low impact as possible by choosing the earth friendlier options as I conduct my business. Unfortunalty unless we stop buying things and become nudists there is always some impact made by the apparel industry. My hope is be being a mindful manufacturer and by you being a conscious consumer we can make a change in how the industry as a whole functions.
