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 wonderful rich Teal!
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

I really struggle with high waisted leggings that should stay up but always slip down with the tiniest amount of movement.
But not these ones!
The colour is drop dead gorgeous, a wonderful rich teal! The fabric feels like butter, so soft! I'll never wear different leggings!
My daughter-in-law was very pleased with these.
So beautiful, comfy and flattering - I wear them all the time!
I am wearing the Codies this very second and they are amazing. First of all THEY DON'T SLIP DOWN (hallelujah). But also they are snugly supportive while still super comfy, and the colour is really vibrant and beautiful. When I wore these with the Nola cropped tee in green, my husband said "wowwww are you from the future?" which is exactly the impression I would like to always make. I wear them to work out, to go for walks, to work from home, to lie around, and to look awesome in. Note on sizing: I'm a size 18 and I bought XL - I bought L first but even though they fit they were a bit too tight for comfort. Teal Codies for that slippery, comfy, vibrant space alien look. Yes.
Just received the “Codie” high waisted leggings in Teal and was surprised by the colour which was much more green than expected, as well as the extreme amount of fabric around the crotch, this looked really unflattering at the front and even at the back :(
