We're often asked why our clothing feels so soft and light, why it regains its form after each use and why it stays looking great through countless uses and washes. The answer is simple, and it hits at the very very core of our business. It's our material.
When we made our first side string short we had very specific needs in mind. We loved the feel of cotton, but we hated how it absorbed all our sweat and felt heavy on our skin. We wanted a material that would strectch with our bodies through asanas, yet bounce back to form as we lay in savasasana. We aspired for a solution to loose fitting shirts and shorts but we needed to ensure our material would last, we demanded durability. It required a great deal of searching, testing and tweaking, but we found a solution, and we call it 'Coolform'.
Is a knitted fabric that combines Amni polyamide with elastane yarn. Lighter weight and thinner than our coolform fabric, coolform light is meant specifically for heated rooms and hot places. This material is so light and so soft that it is often described as equivalent to the feeling of wearing nothing at all! Free from harmfu chemicals while offering 50+ UV protection, we make all our prints in this material, and some styles in black too. We recommend this material for hot yoga, during the summer months, or as anuber comfortable first player during colder months for your outdoor activities.
Is a funkafied version of our coolform fabric, with slightly less weight. You'll find the cotton soft feel, moisture wicking ability, four-way stretch and shaperetention are all present in this fabric, but also that it 'pops' giving it a 3D effect. Remember those pop-up books you read as a child? THink of our textured coolform as the material version of a pop-up book. It grabs the eye and pairs beautifully with our other fabrics.
Has a slightly textured surface with a very comfortable fir that molds to the body without over compressing. Wicking properties provide ideal thermal exchange while the lighter weight is deal for hot rooms and hot places. We weave this fabric with 100% biodegradable nylon Amni Soul Eco, a Brazilian technology, which produces accelerated garment decomposition in landfills. While it once took decades for traditional nylons to decompose, our Eco Coolform will fully decompose within three years of being in a landfill. Free from toxic chemicals and containing 50+ UV protection, this is a fabric that both Mother Earth and your skin will love.
Is both lightweight and stretchy. It offers ventilation withour the bulk, it holds you in and breathes at the same time, making it perfect for your active lifestyle. We feature our stretch mesh mainly as an accent fabric and in combination with our coolform and coolform light fabrics.
