----------

Scoria brings you biodegradable yoga mats, recycled leggings and expressive t-shirts inspired by children's imaginations. As an art teacher, designer, and passionate yogi, I interpret different children's stories into designs of high quality yoga gear that tap into the imagination!

 

"How can Scoria products help my creativity?"

 Scoria's designs are a tool to trigger the imagination... Interpreted from children's stories, illustrations of landscapes, doorways, or patterns can help initiate the start of a story. We encourage imagining different stories with every practice on the mat

 

 

  

 

 

 

DESIGNS

QUALITY ASSURANCE

Made of natural cork and natural rubber, the most sustainable materials in the market, we use a high quality process of production so that the cork is un-breakable, does not harm any trees and is top performance.

1. THE MAT

 

Three dreamy designs to choose from:

 

 

 

 1. A friend to our planet

2. Better grip every time you sweat! (perfect for hot yoga)

3. Durable and will last years

4. Self-cleaning cork top! Yes, the top is anti-microbial and prevents mildew. Only needs an occasional wipe with water to prevent oil build up

5. One mat gives 6 meals to a hungry child in partnership with FCE

6. Triggers the imagination allowing one to feel more creative during yoga or meditation

AND, they come with a strap!

The sizes of the yoga mats are a standard size of 68 inches x 24 inches.  This first production provides cushioning of 4mm; the best balance of comfortable cushioning and easy travel

 

 

Yoga mat features and materials:

 

SUSTAINABILITY

Yoga mats that use PVC, TPE, and or Micro-fibres, are still not the best for the environment as much as they claim to be eco-friendly. The materials do not all biodegrade and are usually a mix of synthetics and natural materials.

  

 

 

 

 

DESIGN

2. THE LEGGINGS

For this first production we designed only one pair of leggings, but we wish to design more scribbly leggings and start instilling creativity within children in communities once we grow or if we reach an over-funding of the goal (See "Goals" all the way below for our plans)

POND LEGGINGS

Inspired by a young kid’s story of ponds and butterflies

 

 Leggings materials and features:

Our leggings are made using 86% recycled yarns derived from post consumer plastic bottles and 14% spandex. Be kind to the planet while you sweat! They are also functional and can be worn for lounging or for casual wear.

 

 EXCITING UPDATE

Flat lock seams and a gusset are not shown in the pictures, however, we have recently adjusted the design with flat lock seams for an excellent fit and added a gusset for better comfort.

SIZE CHART

We currently have standard sizes of XS, S, M, L, XL. 

At the end of a successful campaign, backers will receive a survey that will allow choosing the preferred size and design!

3. GRAPHIC TEES

Meet our two fun t-shirts that are perfect for casual wear or lounging. Unisex t-shirts!

TEES: Pledge of $25CAD+ | $19USD

 WHO I WANT TO BE T-SHIRT (LEFT) & FLEXI THE UNICORN T-SHIRT (RIGHT)

The t-shirts are printed in Canada and we are hoping that by the end of a successfully funded campaign we are able to print these designs using sustainable organic cotton for better comfort and planet-friendliness.

 

 

 

You can now choose this fun lounge t-shirt design if you selected the "t-shirt" reward. All our t-shirts are unisex, this is an addition for the males who asked for something that could suit their daily lives better!

 

  

If you already pledged for a t-shirt or two...

Great! Now you will have a third choice at the end of the campaign to choose from.

If you are a new backer and just want this t-shirt...

You can choose the "Choice of t-shirt" reward box!

If you want to ADD to your existing pledge this t-shirt...

If you want this t-shirt as an ADD ON, meaning you already chose a reward such as leggings, a yoga mat or a t-shirt and want this as another item, ADD only CA $14 to your pledge ($11 USD) and a note will be added once your pledge has increased. This is a special price to only those who want this t-shirt as an ADD ON to what they already pledged for.

Please feel free to message me or post a comment if you have any questions.

GIVING BACK

Our children are the future! With every unique pledge of $25CAD or more, you help feed children in the most needed communities around the world. We commit to 6 nutritious vegetarian meals with every unique pledge of $25 CAD in partnership with FCE. The meals include lentils, rice, dehydrated vegetables, pink Himalayan salt, are versatile and could be easily cooked into different recipes.

FUNDING ESTIMATE COSTS

Current artist fees are low due to them going back to me, the designer and founder of the project itself. However, for the future, when artists are involved (see below goals), artists, especially any children artists will be given more advantages such as royalties to them, the families, and going back into the help of the communities and charities they are involved in.

THE GOALS

With this funding we will be able to get our first production ready for you! With the start of Scoria, you will be bringing more story-telling and imagination to the world. If we got fortunate enough to reach the goal and even more for stretch goals, we got lots of dreams that would love to make reality and bring to you!

$15,000 - INVENTORY 

With a little more funding we will be able to 100% guarantee that the first collection will be going in a new Scoria e-commerce store for anyone to be able to purchase

$25,000 - NEW COLLECTION INVOLVING CHILDREN & COMMUNITIES

With around $12,000 more we will be able to fund a new collection that is community involved. 

We are aiming to work with children in impoverished communities to inspire them to be artists and give them the ability to become the designers and provide their inspiring stories and scribbles to the world as we give back royalties, financial help, and hands-on help to the children's families and organizations involved directly.

The money will be needed for more research, being able to directly communicate and visit the communities, better communication of ideas to the world, and giving back financially to the children who provided their art and stories to the world. Also, of course a minimum order of inventory for each design to provide the world with the option of having a piece of this collection

$35,000 - NEW LEGGINGS + WORK ON TEXTILE IMPROVEMENTS

If we really over-reach the goal, we will add brand new leggings that you will love, and in darker colours for many who requested that. As we are in a process of even more improvements for the leggings. A lot of the money will go into making the recycled fabrics even better! 

We would love to make the fabric better through keeping it soft and have it feel as if it's second-skin as it is right now, however with a thickness that will be harder to recognize that they are made from recycled fabrics. Compared to other brands, our fabric is one of the thickest recycled polyester and has one of the best functionalities, however we aim to work on developing the textile itself to make it even better in its thickness, coverage, comfort and durability! (Aiming high to use/ develop the best recycled fabrics to find in the market)

$42,000 - ADDITION OF SPORT BRAS TO MATCH THE LEGGINGS

Ah, don't you just want to be covered in scribbles and spark your imagination from head to toe? We worked a lot in the past year to find a way to add a sports bra that is also made from recycled plastic bottles, however we wanted to keep our commitment to manufacture clothing ethically and in Canada and discovered that it will need to be tackled from scratch with a brand new pattern, more testing and research. An investment will be needed to create a brand new pattern, prototypes and with an aim for optimal quality and functionality.

Future Goal: SCORIA MEN'S 

If we reach an even higher funding of $80,000 or more, it's good to dream! We will be adding a first collection for men in terms of clothing/ unisex sweater, tee, and men's active wear/ yoga pants.

Risks and challenges

There is always a possibility for unforeseen circumstances for production, however, there has been a buffer time added to make sure this project follows the timeline. I also worked closely with manufacturers to put together production estimates and secure the materials. At this point all of the products you see are ready to roll with this goal being reached.

And, I will always put in my very best to work through any challenge to deliver what is promised and deliver it on time. Any challenges and risks coming our way will be tackled directly

Duty/VAT charges: If you are an international backer, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

Customs: Some countries may be very slow with customs. We're sorry that it is out of our control to help them get through faster.

Because our backers' support is so important to us and we will make sure to keep our promises and frequently about our progress, and if there are any blips along the way, we'll let you know! All is needed now is your support. So, let's bring this creativity notion to life!
