No side pockets. One back pocket (right side). Elastic-free drawstrings.
|Fabric:||Organically grown European hemp|
|Made in:||Europe. Sweatshop-free. (Till fit inventory gaps, some of the stock are made by sew-at-home artisans in Thailand. Also sweatshop-free.)|
Note on pants sizing: The Hemp Meditation pants are cut straight and have no elastic at the waist. The sizing is on the small side, especially around the thigh area, so if you're deciding between two sizes, we recommend that you go for the bigger size.
|Care:||Care as you would fine linens: hand wash or machine wash with mild detergent in cold water. Lay flat to dry. Machine drying is not recommended as dry heat may damage fabric. Iron at the highest linen setting if desired.|
Eco-friendly pants to practice meditation or Tai Chi in. Great as warm weather drawstring hemp pants for the beach or the streets.
Great for yoga practice too, thanks to the comfort of their elastic-free waistband, which you can adjust to the width that works for you.
Routine is perhaps the most important part of mindfulness practice, as long-time practitioners know. We find that when we meditate in the same space, at the same hour, and with the same outfit, we get into the a serene state of mind faster and more naturally. The combination of the RG539 Mindful Hemp Shirt and RG684 Hemp Yoga Meditation Pants puts us in the right state of mind each and every time.
Eco tidbits: Simplicity and Fairness: Simple living is less violent and less exploitative. When we live in complexity, our needs are so great in terms of energy and material goods that we live at the expense of others. As we simplify our homes, our clothes, and our eating habits, not only is less work needed to supply us but also less effort to maintain our way of life, as well.
As the people of the world who are now exploited begin to get a fair return for their labor, prices will rise. We must expect this and be willing to pay the costs, otherwise we are hypocrites of the first water, wanting the world's people to be well off yet still insisting that our bananas be cheap. When the people picking the bananas in Honduras, tapping the rubber trees in Malaysia, mining tin in Bolivia, and making shoes in Brazil get the same return for their labor that we do, our bananas and boots and tires and tin (and fair trade clothing--ed.) will cost more. -- from A Handmade Life by WM.S.
