100% premium Japanese cotton - performs, feels and lasts like no other jersey knit cotton you have felt before
Machine wash inside out and avoid dryer for fabric longevity
My MIX short is designed with yoga and pilates in mind combining a luxurious woven jersey cotton feel with a relaxed bike-short cut, making it a perfect comfort option no matter what your activity. Like myself everyone who gets a pair finds themselves wearing them lounging and relaxing in them just as much as when doing yoga or stretching!
The reason I made these out of cotton rather than a performance synthetic fabric is Yoga is one of the few stationary activities you sweat in a stationary position, especially in a heated class where there is no air flow. Synthetic fabrics work when you have airflow and are moving and otherwise they just feel saturated and slimy by the end of a class whilst our short feels like a comfortable second skin as they offer more absorption of sweat.
Here is a review from a customer I met at Manly market who I discovered later is a yoga teacher:
"I'm really enjoying the shorts, I don't really notice them at all when I'm practising yoga (mainly astanga and vinyasa) so it's great to have one less thing to distract me from my practice. They're so much more comfortable than my citrusy synthetic lululemon shorts too ;) I think mainly due to the softer fabric and breathability, and they don't seem to hold any odour which is an added bonus. They've also lasted really well considering the amount of use they've had, the construction of them is solid and only really bought a second pair for some variety."
There are technical features like lightly elasticised cuffs so the short does not ride up and a flat waistband with flat laces stitched into place so they don't twist and create pressure points.
Unlike the cheap jersey cotton you get in pretty much any shopping mall chain or box store I import premium Japanese jersey cotton specifically for this garment at an expense greater than wool for it's following features:
Interlock woven - This is the tightest and most costly way to weave jersey cotton. You know the big loose weave on the inside of cheap jersey? This is the opposite with a tightly woven weave. It produces the softest feel whilst creating strength and allows a natural flex in the fibres with no need for any synthetic stretch component that will blow the garment out over time. This means our MIX short keeps it shape wash after wash.
Mercerised - A treatment which strengthens the cotton and provides a lustrous appearance. The fabric is is run over an open flame incinerating stray fibres which significantly reduces pilling.
Enzyme washed - Makes the fabric softer, more supple and neutralises odour.
Fit tip: Buying them in your waist size will provide a silhouetted fit. If you feel like you would like a more relaxed fit then go up a size. The waist band can be cinched in and the crotch can be raised if desired as the waist band can flip over itself neatly as the it is in a flat construction.
