I’m picking colours for the phone pocket pant? And, you know, I always like to get your input.

3 colours

Black is always the anchor colour in any style especially pants. It’s a must do. I learned that early on.

In manufacturing, you typically get to pick 3 colourways, which is the term used in the fashion industry for colour combinations.

So, the first colour will be black. The 2nd colour will be this charcoal grey mix. It’s the colour I sampled the pants in. It’s a nice alternative to black.

That leaves the 3rd colour choice open. What’s your favourite colour for pants, other than black? Or maybe I should be asking: What colour would you like to wear this Fall? What are you missing in your wardrobe?


Here are a few options to get you started. I know it’s difficult to capture true colours on camera and then online, but it gives you an idea of what’s available in bamboo.


Navy or Marine blue

Olive Green

The pants will be going into production in August which means I need to order the fabric soon.

The fabric will be a medium weight bamboo french terry. It’s super soft against your skin and breathable. It almost feels like you’re not wearing pants at all, lol.

The Joy

The name of these pants will be the Joy. Joy Rodgers is a breast cancer survivor. She’s the creator of Joyful Packages and offers cancer care packages and accessories for men, women, and children. There will be more to come on Joy, her journey, and how she started Joyful Packages during the launch of the Joy phone pocket pant.

In the meantime, comment below with your colour choice or send me an email at colleen@cokanna.ca. As always, I love to hear from you!

Until next time,
