So over the last year team legacy has been on a quest
The quest has been to make a pair of leggings that are squat proof , high waisted and that sculpt to your bum and legs and this at times has driven the team a little crazy at times.
Earlier last year a plan was set in motion to create a range of womens wear that was not only fashionable but eco friendly, now many differnt fabric options were looked into untill we found one that sounded to good to be true …. bamboo.
Yes thats right turns out bamboo is not just for pandas, Bamboo grass is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than hardwood trees, In addition to being enviromentally friendly there are a number of reason why we choose bamboo fabric.
- Anti – odour: it naturally has anti bacterial properties to fight odour
- Regulates body temperature: Bamboo fabric has micro- gaps, which aid in ventilation, meaning they trap cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter to regulate your body temperature.
- Absorbent & Moisture Wicking : The porous nature of bamboo fabric also means it is three to four times more absourbent then cotton, allowing it to wick and absorb perspiration away from the body, keep you dry and comfortable during your workout.
- Luxuriously Soft: Bamboo fabric is super soft and feels like a combination between silk and cotton. The moment you wear it next to your skin you will notice the difference between other fabrics.
- Kind To Skin: The naturally smooth fibres of bamboo fabric lie flat against the skin , limiting skin irritation and sensitvity. Making it a convenient solution to sensitive and easily irrated skin.
- No Chemical pesticides: Bamboo can grow organically with out the use of pesticides because it is naturally disease and pest- resistant .Making it a better natural alternative to cotton.
So now we found the fabric we just had to create the design Legacys Founder Adam Franks said “in phase 2 we wanted to create something completely different to anything we had done before and use different colours , a basic design is functional but a great one should say something and the Legacy Legacy ZHU does just that . This is the first few items in our new womens collection coming out later this year which i am really excited about “
Legacy ZHU is out in May
