"We create yoga apparel that honours our mother earth. Our leggings are locally made from recycled water bottles and are BPA free. Our garments are sweatshop-free and are made in North America (Vancouver to be exact!). Our shirts are all hand printed with love in our small studio. We believe in giving back to our greater global community through philanthropic initiatives."
Based in Vancouver, BC, Inner Fire Apparel was born out of an unfortunate health scare that forced creator Leah Emmot to take time off from being a yoga teacher and fitness instructor. Stuck at home, Leah tuned into her creative side and began making earth-friendly, clever t-shirts.
This creative outlet has now expanded to a successful apparel line including t-shirts, tank tops, long sleeves and leggings for women and men.
Earth friendly facts about Inner Fire:
- Their t-shirts are ethically made in the US and use water-based inks for the screen printing
- Their leggings are made in small batches in Vancouver from BPA-free recycled plastic bottles with an anti-microbial chitosante treatment
What is chitosante?!
Chitosante is a natural biomass made from re-purposed crab and shrimp shells recycled from food industry waste. While most companies use harsh chemicals to prolong the life of their garments, Inner Fire uses chitosante as an eco-friendly alternative.
Inner Fire also donates a portion of it's profits to The School Fund, an organization that helps give educational scholarships to children in developing countries.
My New Neighbour loves the high quality active wear basics and bold colours Inner Fire uniquely offers. We adore that they truly go above and beyond to create an Earth friendly product. Their customer service is prompt and friendly, very "neighbourly"! AND we keep getting compliments on our good lookin' yoga wear!
