BEHIND THE DESIGN
THE MAKING OF THE ASANA JOGGER
Our Asana jogger was initially designed as an alternative to leggings for workout, pilates and yoga. We wanted to offer a versatile pant that was more forgiving, less restrictive and more comfortable than leggings. However, what started as a workout staple has since become a lounge and everyday must-have.
In this article, we want to offer you a glimpse of the thought process behind our asana jogger, a pant loved by thousands across the world.
NON-SLIP COMFORT CENTERFOLD WAIST
A comfortable and non-restrictive waistband was a priority for this design. After prototyping several waistband styles (including ones with an elastic band) we found a centrefold no-seam folded waistband to be the most comfortable and practical.
The 8cm height of the waistband affords plenty of comfort, while the inherent elasticity of the interlock fabric allows the waistband to stretch and conform to an individual's waist.
DISCRETE INVISIBLE ZIP POCKETS
We included two discrete and invisible zip pockets to carry your phone, and any other necessities when you're on the go.
We included a top stitch around the pocket to prevent the pockets from sagging or flopping around. To reduce bulk, we also decided to skip adding an extra layer of pocket lining. Instead, the pocket is lined by the main outer fabric of the pant.
PEACHY SOFT STRETCH FABRIC
The asana jogger utilises a 220g interlock knit blend that has undergone a peached or brushed finish on both sides.
Peaching is a fabric finishing process that raises the surface fibres of a fabric. The process involves the use of extra-fine metal brushes that carefully rub against the surface of the fabric to produce fine fibres or hairs from the woven yarns.
The peached finish creates a soft, comfortable surface feel - something our customers love!
WHICH LENGTH DO YOU PREFER?
We all have different personal preferences and body compositions when it comes to the length of our joggers. Some of us are taller, while some of us are shorter. Some of like a longer length, while others may prefer a mid-thigh length.
To cater for different tastes, we made our Asana jogers in two inseam lengths designed to sit at the ankles.
TIGHTEN WHEN YOU TRAIN, LOOSEN WHEN YOU RELAX
Tighten up for intense workouts or runs with the soft elasticated drawstring. The flat design is purposed to reduce bulge and discomfort.
The drawstrings are purposely designed to be removable as it's not for everyone. If you remove them, you would never have known they were there in the first place!
