Staying-In, Sustainably

Leggings are our safer-at-home clothing staple, whether we’re on Zoom meetings (business up top, cozy down low), watching our favorite Netflix series, or keeping grounded with a living room flow. We especially love these organic cotton yoga pants, as they’re made by smaller businesses with ethical production practices and sustainable ethics. Snag yourself a pair.
