Sportswear, but make it fun (and ethical!) (and recycled!)
Introducing our Codie Leggings - made from 88% Recycled Polyester (from plastic bottles) and 12% Elastane. Great stretch, silky soft fabric in a fab rich Rust colour!
Recycled polyester is great because...
- it saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
- it's super soft
- less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil
But nothing is perfect....
- all polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them. To prevent this, use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres - we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag

Really love them! I struggle to find leggings that don’t slip down when running and these ones are an absolute dream. They stay up perfectly and I love the colour. I originally bought them in a M (I’m a 5’2 size 12) but ended up exchanging them for a S which fit better. I highly recommend them and plan to buy more in different colours (as unfortunately they are now the only leggings I wear for running as they’re so much better than any of my others lol) I will say however that the fabric is quite thin so if you’re self conscious over cellulite or anything like that on your legs then maybe bare that in mind?
One of my fav leggings so far. I'll do yoga with her and she (the Legging) is not slipping at all. Most comfortable fabric and nicest colour!! So thanks for this super nice item! :)
Super comfy and really good fit (I went for M, usually a tall 10/12) haven’t taken them off yet!
Love these leggings for their colour and cut - really beautiful orangey rust, waistband sits at a comfortable point and they are a great length, hitting just at my ankle (I’m a leggy 5ft 9). But I find that the material makes my legs really itchy! I have sensitive skin and sometimes have itchiness with wool and synthetic garments, but this material has definitely given me the worst reaction for a while. I suspect there is some kind of chemical in the recycling process which I’m reacting to. I’ll try the bamboo leggings next. Hope this feedback is helpful! X
These leggings are so comfy it’s kind of rude. Perfect amount of stretch vs firmness. These wash really well too! The rust colour is such a happy colour to have on my legs.
