Calling all COKANNA fans. Would you like to be a COKANNA Kanbassador/tester? Raise your hand if you’re in.

I’m looking for 2 brand ambassadors to test a new design before it goes into production. What exactly does that mean? Read on.

For this first-time round, I’m looking for a Size 1(S) and Size 2(M). I sample in different sizes so don’t worry, it won’t always be these 2 sizes going forward.

I have a new style of pant that has the same wide comfy waistband as the Lynne legging. It’s in a charcoal grey mix and it has phone pockets.

Your gift

You’ll get a sample pair of this new style in Size 1 or 2 to put through rigorous testing, and then they’re yours to keep.

Here’s a close up view of the front, side, and back of the pant.

Your mission

Your mission should you choose to accept it: To wear the pants as much as possible, every day if you can. Wear them for all your activities from lounging, to working out, to going for walks, to working from home…you get the idea. Wash them as many times as you need. It’s recommended to machine wash in cold water and hang to dry. But, I would like you to put them in the dryer too, on low, to test shrinkage.

Report back to me at or 613-863-8893 in one week’s time and tell me what you think. And be honest. Now’s the time to make changes before it goes into production.

What I need to know

Here are the specific things I would like to know:

  1. Is the waistband a comfortable width? Would you like it wider? Or narrower?
  2. Are the legs a good fit? Would you prefer a tighter fit? Or looser?
  3. How’s the size of the phone pocket? Does it fit your phone?
  4. How do they wash? Any shrinkage in the dryer?

Of course, any other feedback you have is welcome too, good or bad. I value your input. It’s how I continually improve my designs. My clothes are meant for you. Not the other way round.

Your commitment

As a Kanbassador, you commit to:

  1. Trying and hopefully loving my clothes if you aren’t already a fan
  2. Taking photos of yourself wearing the pants
  3. Agreeing to your photos being posted on my social media accounts and website
  4. Being a brand ambassador and spreading the word. Word-of-mouth buzz is the best way to create awareness for a Canadian woman-owned small business.
