MADE IN COLOMBIA
All our products are made in Colombia, with only the best fabrics produced in Colombia and the USA. After many trials and errors and working with our fabric supplier in Colombia, we could tweak the fabric components to use the best quality Elastane and Polyester. We looked to print on our authentic fabric with the highest-quality threats and got a product with a perfectly adjustable fit. Our Leggings are printed and manufactured in-house by our main leggings brand. We want our colours to be very vivid in every body size. Eco-friendly ink is used in a vast amount to make sure the colours are vivid. As "One Size" leggings are our strength and mission, we don't limit our ink consumption or processes to avoid extra cost. We go big.
To obtain nice colourful prints, it is essential to use High-performance fabrics that allow for the art of adding patterns and designs to fabric. As a result, we came up with a great combination of high-quality Elastano and Polyester.
