The story of the High Rise Biker begins in the United States, where the hemp-cotton blend is grown and sourced. As a crop, hemp requires no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or GMO seeds which enables the soil to thrive while growing the plant. When sourcing fabric, NATASHA TONIC only works with hemp, avoiding polyester-based materials to ensure that her clothing does not contribute to the plastic crisis. Once the material is sourced, it is brought to Natasha’s studio in Los Angeles where the biker short is made. The entire process is completed in the United States. Manufacturing locally brings complete transparency, while minimizing pollution and emissions from transportation. The biker short is then dyed with natural components that are water soluble and have no heavy metal content. Once completed, the biker short is packaged in compostable packaging and transported to a shipment center, headed straight to you. This biker short has lived in 1 country and traveled hundreds of miles to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love this biker short and wear it with pride knowing that you are embodying fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choices.
