WHY HAUMEYA LEGGINGS?

Because we want to be conscious and intentional consumers. Because we care about the world we live in and about who makes our clothes. And, really, because we girls want to wear leggings all the days (denim is dead to me).

The fashion industry is the second-largest polluting industry in the world, after the oil industry-- and since most athletic wear uses synthetic, plastic fabric fibers-- we as consumers are inadvertently contributing to a global pollution problem. Not to mention all the people (real live people!) around the world who produce clothes in poor conditions to satiate the Western demand for cheap fashion. 

Enter Haumeya.  We set out to create an athlesiure closet staple that is kind to the earth and to people without sacrificing quality, comfort, flexibility, compression (all those lovely things we need in our stretchy pants, am I right?). With our eco-friendly fabric, a sustainable and non-toxic manufacturing process, ethical practices, and recycled packaging, now we legging lovers can wear what we want and not feel one bit bad about it.

MATERIALS & FEATURES

We looked long and hard to find a fabric of the highest quality, extremely durable and long-lasting, that would have no distinguishable differences from your other leggings. Except THESE are wood pants, which is super cool.

The Haumeya Classic Black Legging is available in extra-small through extra-large, and in two lengths: 3/4 length and full-length. They are the perfect high quality, versatile, sustainable staple.  Go ahead, add them to your capsule wardrobe.  Wear them on a date, and to the gym, and the grocery store. Wear them all the ways, to all the things, and make the world a little happier!

 

 

MANUFACTURING

The production of our fabric fibers uses much less water than other common fabrics-- even organics like cotton-- and is closed-looped: fancy term meaning that all materials used during the process can be recovered and reused repeatedly.  Which means... no waste introduced into the environment (happy dance!). The yarn from these fabric fibers is woven and dyed with non-toxic dyes in our fabric mill in California, then off to be cut, sewn and assembled into pretty leggings, and then all packaged and mailed with love by yours truly.

 

CHARITABLE GIVING

(Since Kickstarter prohibits creators from donating Kickstarter-raised funds to charities, we will begin implementing the charitable giving aspect of our business once the campaign closes). 

In an effort to make a positive impact on more than just the environment, it's important to the Haumeya team to use our influence and resources to bless the lives of those less fortunate. For every pair of leggings sold, Haumeya will donate to an organization that will provide one full year of clean water to FIVE individuals in need. Because we think giving back is a must.

 

Risks and challenges

One of our biggest challenges is competing with a saturated athletic wear market where many consumers don't care that their athletic wear fabrics are made of synthetic (plastic) fabrics. However, our research makes us optimistic, as many individuals and companies are having more success shedding light on the terrible circumstances around textile manufacturing around the world. Even celebrities are using their influence for good and wearing more sustainable clothing on the red carpet.

Our other risk is that we are attempting to fund our business without involving venture capital or investors. Our bootstrap capital has only allowed us to develop a small number of prototype samples for testing and market validation. In order to move forward the project will have to be funded by generous, forward-looking backers.
