The story of the Rider Leggings 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 swimwear to ensure that her bathing suits do not contribute to the plastic crisis. Once the material is sourced, it is brought to Natasha’s studio in Los Angeles where the leggings are made. The entire process is completed in the United States. Manufacturing locally brings complete transparency, while minimizing pollution and emissions from transportation. The leggings are then dyed with natural components that are water soluble and have no heavy metal content. Once completed, the leggings are packaged in compostable packaging and transported to a shipment center, headed straight to you. These leggings have lived in 1 country and traveled hundreds of miles to earn a permanent spot in your wardrobe. We hope you love these leggings and wear them with pride knowing that you are embodying fashion and choosing to better the planet with your conscious shopping choices.
