Inspired by the minimalist traveler, Calibabas merge comfort with versatility

Calibabas are...  

1) Designed to be Unisex. Our unisex size range scales every body type and height. We offer four unisex sizes, which will fit anyone whether you're 4'11" or 6'11". See sizing chart below.

2) Comfortable. We hate wearing things that aren't comfortable.

3) Multi-functional. Calibabas will be the most frequently rotated item in your collection. They are designed to be the only pant you need throughout whatever your day holds. From morning coffee, to yoga, to class, to three-hour nap, Calibabas can do it all.

4) Ethically produced. After searching far and wide, we teamed up with a California-based manufacturer that meets our ethical standards and provides good-paying jobs for employees in its factory in Peru. This gives us the ability to offer these pants at a reasonable price, in a way we feel good about.

5) Adjustable Length. Depending on weather, mood, astrological sign, and personal preference, these pants can be worn down to the ankle like a jogger or raised up to the mid-calf for more of a harem style. This versatile design feature also enables one size of Calibabas to fit people of vastly different heights.

 

Wear them down, or wear them up. Or one of each.

Cooling Space Fabric Crafted from our unique nylon/spandex blend, Calibabas are your year-round, indoor-outdoor pant. They'll keep you cool under the covers, regulating the perfect temperature even with body heat. Air circulation is uninhibited in the hip area, making them great for physical activity or lounging horizontally*.

Deep pockets Hidden pockets can hold all of your belongings on-the-go, making Calibabas your go-to travel pant. The style of the pants and discreet placement of the pockets keep the contents hidden.

Sold Direct At Calibabas, we coordinate everything from design conception to order fulfillment. This model allows us to cut out the middle man and thus offer you quality and comfort, without the retail markup.

 

As a guide, we recommend you choose by waist size, referencing your usual pant inseam (measured from crotch seam to bottom hem) if you fall between sizes. Calibabas are created to be worn at various lengths, so focus on the waist measurement when selecting your size!

 Due to the elasticity of the fabric and the versatility of the style, we've found most people can wear two sizes. If you find yourself between sizes, anticipate that the smaller of the two will fit closer to a jogger style, while the larger option will have more fabric, emphasizing the harem aspect. This versatility in fit and style makes these pants incredibly easy to borrow.

We plan to begin production as soon as the project becomes fully funded. Building in sufficient time to process orders, we expect to begin filling orders at the end of May 2017, with all orders expected to be filled by the end of June. We will be sure to keep you updated throughout the production process or if we foresee any delays.

 

We love our logo. We call him Tim. Tim is just like us. Tim likes to exercise but also likes to relax. Our logo combines those two things at the same time. Tim is not afraid to go full nap mid-yoga session. These are high quality shirts with a lived-in feel.

Previously college athletes and forever frequent travelers, founders Kath and Alex were always packing their bags for something. Their bags were usually overstuffed with a variety of clothes for commuting, exercise, going out and sleeping. Somehow, none of those options could be worn throughout the entire day. It seemed like they were always changing clothes and carrying around too much stuff. They wondered if there was a better way, a way to travel lighter and travel comfier. They wanted a high-quality, versatile pair of pants they could wear for every activity throughout the day.

On a trip to India, Kath realized she hadn't quite packed for the unpredictable weather and cultural norms for the destination. In her bag was a pair of jeans, a pair of sweats, and some leggings and shorts. The jeans and sweats were far too hot for train travel and exploration; leggings were culturally out of context for pretty much anything except yoga. Shorts didn't wick sweat or provide the protection from bugs.

The quick fix — she bought a few harem pants off the street and wore them every day for the remainder of the trip. They were comfortable, kept her cool, and could be worn every hour of the day and night.

Kath returned from India with her bag full of these harem pants for her friends. Everybody loved how comfortable and breathable they were, but it was agreed no one would wear them outside the house. They were fun but lacked pockets and stretchability for physical activity. The exuberant patterns and excessively flowy style were too much for everyday wear; the fabric was cheap and the seams tore easily.

Kath and Alex decided if they couldn't find what they were looking for in a pant, they would make their own. Scratch the elephants and Om symbols; these needed to be useful for everyday wear. The concept would be a unisex pant, something that could be worn for every activity from morning to night, and that placed comfort above all else.

They took the main tenets of the harem style: the extra fabric in the hip region, the focus on comfort, unrestricted range of motion, and the ability to keep you cool. They merged these concepts with the popular jogger style, which focuses on style and versatility. After searching far and wide, they finally found the fabric blend that has the perfect amount of stretch and breathability. They added well-constructed, reinforced pockets to hold all your items on-the-go.

Eight months after starting the process, the final prototype was sewn. We are so excited and we truly appreciate your support of our project.

 

Risks and challenges

As this is our first bulk production, we know there can be some unexpected delays throughout the process. Although we don't anticipate any major hang-ups, one of the challenges we could face would be timely fabric creation if the demand were to far exceed our expectations. We will work day and night to work with our suppliers to fulfill orders as soon as humanly possible. We promise to keep you updated throughout the manufacturing process and inform you promptly of any delays.

Thank you for supporting our project. We look forward to making your life significantly more comfortable!
