Have you been wondering why my leggings & lounge pants don’t have names? I typically name my designs after women in the community. Women who are unapologetically true to themselves. And, that’s what makes them shine.

Then, it occurred to me that I should probably explain why when a customer casually made reference to the “no name” pants.

In the beginning, something I didn’t foresee was that the bamboo leggings and lounge pants would appeal to other genders. Much to my delight, I’ve had a few male customers purchase the pants.

So, I decided not to name them and just call them what they are…bamboo leggings and bamboo lounge pants. Without a doubt, I want them to be gender inclusive.

And really, anyone can wear them. Anyone who wants soft, comfy, breathable pants that move with your body and not against it. Pants that aren’t restrictive or body shaping in any way. I’m not opposed to that. This is just another alternative.

Both the leggings and lounge pants come in neutral charcoal greys that go with anything.

I’ve had couples purchase matching pants. Could it be the better half’s influence? Possibly. Not everyone can pull off matching pants like Tanya & Quentin!

Tanya likes hers for lounging in style. Quentin likes to wear his when coaching baseball.

Meanwhile, Greg says he loves to wear his bamboo leggings for yoga, cooking, watching movies, playing games, dog walking, sleeping, just about everything. He bought 2 pairs because he says he’s never taking them off.

His fiancee, Sandy, bought a pair too and then her friend, Marjorie, visiting from Chile also got a pair.

If I made bamboo leggings for pets, I think their dog, Eddy, would also have a pair.

As summer winds down, now’s a great time to invest in a pair of leggings or lounge pants.

Shop the leggings

Both will go nicely with the Pamela Bamboo Hoodie that’s coming out soon for pre-order. Just saying! Stay tuned.

Until next time,
