Strike a Pose
Yoga enthusiasts Sevda and Bert Holland had a problem with yoga clothing made with synthetic blends. To them, it felt inappropriate for the holistic practice. It felt foreign and confining on the body. And, oftentimes, it was styled as if yoga were some sort of competition — a sport where there are points, fans, and cheerleaders.
In response, Sevda and Bert launched Prancing Leopard, a clothing line that allows them to embrace a 360° organic lifestyle. The goal is to create wares that are comfortable and stylish enough to go from brunch to a yoga session and then out and about again, without having to change. It all starts with gorgeous organic fabrics — natural, made with sustainable fibers — and then comes to life with Prancing Leopard’s laid-back boho-chic style (which, frankly, looks way cooler than the average yoga pant-tank top combo you may have sported in yesterday’s bikram session). Check out picks like the Kuray High Low Sweatshirt ($129), an off-the-shoulder, colorblock looker, or the so-versatile-you’ll-wear-it-all-the-time Imago Knit Wrap ($153). For guys, the super-soft Marseille II Top ($69) is an instant classic. Jewelry and Mala beads ($219 and up) make an appearance. And kiddos are repped, too: look for organic pants ($34.20) and tees ($28.20).
And, as always, ecofab is a huge cheerleader (of the non-competitive sort) of companies that give back: Prancing Leopard’s own Women Artisan Project helps out women in underserved communities. Get more details at prancingleopard.com.
