The Lotus Tribe Story
Lotus Tribe Clothing was born when I started to create the clothing that I wanted to wear. From materials, to size, to price, what I wanted simply wasn't available. Being a nature loving, active yet thick woman left many things to be desired in the yoga fashions accessible.
While traveling, we found ourselves in the yoga capital of Ubud, Bali. None of the cute cotton styles came my size. Balinese women are traditionally much more petite than the average American woman. So I found a small family run manufacturer to help me create the styles I craved in my size.
I quickly found that others wanted what I wanted too. Namely, plant based fabrics that are earth friendly, soft and non toxic. So we partnered with this family run business and produced our first collection in summer of 2016.
Our brand lives by a simple mission statement.
Lotus Tribe Clothing creates affordable stylish yoga lifestyle wear that is all eco friendly and ethically made. As soft on Mother Earth as it is on your skin.
We create wonderful yoga clothes without compromise. Our designs are breathable AND earth friendly. Flattering AND functional. Comfortable AND cost effective. For the big AND the small.
Feel good, look good and do good in the world.
What does the name Lotus Tribe mean?
The Lotus flower is a symbol of beauty, enlightenment and strength. The Lotus Flower grows in the deep mud, far away from the sun. But, sooner or later, the Lotus reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever. According to Buddhism, every person has the potential to become perfect and enlightened, and it is just a matter of time until each human reaches the light.
Our Tribe represents the ever growing network of people who are aligned with our mission. We share the same values, knowing that humanity is part of the web of life and all nature in interconnected. We believe in Ahimsa, and strive to do no harm which applies to all living beings and why we are plant based, earth friendly and ethically made.
