Bright Print Leggings by FAIR+True Sustain

These tribal print leggings mix the best of the patterned pant and geometric trends for a versatile pop of color.  Made from sustainable modal fabric in the UK, the leggings are a great bottom from an oversized color-blocked sweater or a simple black dress. FAIR + true is an emerging eco-fashion brand based in London dedicated to producing responsible and sustainable clothing for the hip urbanite.

Leopard Leggings by People Tree

Made by one of our favorite brands dedicated to ethical production, People Tree is a sustainable clothing label based in the UK. Many of People Tree’s garments are produced ethically in Bangladesh, but their organic leggings were made by Assisi, an Indian organization partnering with skilled fairtrade artisans and contemporary style. Ninety-five percent organic cotton and a wee bit of elastane keep these stretchy and breathable too.

GoodoneLeggings

Casual Pants by Goodone

My favorite of them all, I love these Goodone leggings for their urban punch. Designed with style in mind, these leggings are made with three fabric types: panels on the outer leg from repurposed British wool boucle, organic cotton ponte and the inner leg is modal. As always, Goodone is made in the UK. Stylish and comfortable, these leggings are a must have.
