American Flora

 In Archives, Uncategorized

Leotards, tanks, leggings, and booty shorts made from 100% recycled fabric in the US with solar power?  The future is here.  My friend and colleague, Mary Brewster, has begun a really innovative line of clothing for dancers, yogis, and active people alike called American Flora.

The silhouettes are classic and simple and as of now, the line is entirely in black (which is always in vogue and is easy to incorporate into the closet).   There are also chic metal grommet details on every piece, which I think are a cheeky nod to the industrial and industrious nature of working with recycled material.

I am a big fan of the IRIS cropped yoga pant and the POPPY shorts.  Likewise, Alison Roper of OBT has given this review, “I like the comfort of the fabric.  It has a feel that is unique.  It has the softness of Modal (that bamboo fiber) but the coolness of lycra.  Very nice!”
