There are two main reasons why I love and support prAna – their commitment to sustainability and style. So when I had an opportunity to partner with Mambo Sprouts on a sponsored promotion with prAna – I had to say yes. Especially because with barre 3-5 days a week, I always need new workout wear and athleisure clothing for around the house.
The Mika Strappy Top made it through a barre class without a mishap – and I can’t say that for other tops I’ve used in barre class. Believe me, when you’re in an inverted position in yoga or barre, you definitely want something that can strap your ladies in for the whole hour!
It’s awesome that I get to post about these pants today, as it’s Hemp History Week and these incredible pants use hemp fabric! Huge natural industry brands like Dr. Bronner’s, Manitoba Harvest, Tempt, Nutiva, and too-numerous-to-list bath and beauty products brands. Hemp is an versatile crop with so many benefits, and unfortunately it has a bad rap that is totally unwarranted. Learn more about hemp fabric on prAna’s hemp fact sheet.
Why is hemp so great to use in clothing and other household goods?
- Hemp does not require chemical pesticides or fertilizers
- Hemp is a drought resistant plant
- Hemp fabric is lightweight, breathable, ashes well, and it doesn’t wrinkle as much as linen does
But even without considering the awesome material it’s made from, these pants are extraordinary. Mostly for this stretchy band in the back. It’s like backwards maternity pants (for my gluten-free donut baby/babies)! They’re some of the most comfortable athleisure pants I own!
The color is perfect, matches just about anything and everything. I ordered a size medium and it fit like a glove. While linen makes me itch like crazy, this fabric – hemp, organic cotton, and recycled polyester – was perfect for my sensitive skin. These pants can be dressed up and dressed down depending on what you’re pairing it with.
