Yoga Pants Fabrics
Our yoga apparel employs a number of high quality materials with different qualities. We offer yoga pants crafted from: biodegradable LYCRA; thick SUPPLEX; normal LYCRA; and Emana.
You can choose from our more environmentally friendly biodegradable LYCRA leggings. On the one hand, this fabric has the same great feel as normal LYCRA. On the other hand, 50% of the product will decompose within 3 years of being discarded. The fabric is manufactured by Santa Constancia using the first Brazilian biodegradable NYLON thread. Consequently, this fabric has many brilliant qualities:
- Sustainable manufacturing process
- Resource optimisation
- Reduced CO2 emissions
- No toxic and harmful chemicals
Our collection includes many yoga pants fashioned from a thick SUPPLEX. This fabric has many advantages. Firstly, it offers the feel of cotton, with the strength and durability of NYLON. In addition, this fabric is soft and smooth to the touch, while resilient and sweat-wicking. Thus, this advanced fibre technology makes SUPPLEX flexible, lightweight and much softer than standard NYLON. Thick SUPPLEX was developed to have the benefits of cotton, without the pitfalls. Therefore, our SUPPLEX fabrics have many advantages for active wear:
- Shape retention
- Quick drying
- Holds color
- Can be UV protective
When combined with LYCRA fibre, SUPPLEX can bring comfort, fit and freedom of movement. Hence, this fabric is well-suited to active wear for Yoga, Ballet, and Gymnastics.
We offer leggings crafted from LYCRA. Our LYCRA is silky smooth and lightweight. This fabric is designed for freedom of movement. Therefore, it retains its shape and holds its colour regardless of what you put it through. Thus, perfectly suited to active wear, the LYCRA used with these leggings is flexible, breathable, sweat-wicking, buttery-soft and fits like a second skin.
Finally, we carry yoga pants made using Emana. Fine-tuned for athletic performance, this fabric includes bioactive minerals that absorb your body heat. The fabric then ’emanates’ far infrared rays back to your body. In this way, this fabric is able to turn body heat into energy. In turn, the fabric itself can boost your performance. Benefits of wearing Emana include:
- Metabolic biostimulation
- Reduction of appearance of cellulite
- Increased skin elasticity
- Muscle fatigue reduction
Whatever fabric you choose, you can rest assured that your leggings will fit snugly while providing full freedom of movement.
