Have you ever noticed how the way you dress can influence your mood and your day? Once you realize that power, why not use it to your advantage?
The Elephant Pants Collection
For centuries, the elephant has been a symbol of strength, honor and good luck in many cultures around the world. Elephants are sacred spirit animals distinguished as born leaders because of their wisdom, strength, and leadership. The elephant is know to be a gentle giant and symbol of confidence around the world. Since the elephant is so symbolic we wanted to highlight this special animal with our Confidence of the Elephants Collection so we can share the confidence they bestow.
Pants Packed with a Purpose
Larissa, the owner of PI, first had the idea to start the business after going to the Elephant Sanctuary in Chaing Mai, Thailand. "After hearing about how the elephants and many other animals are treated and exploited, I knew I wanted to do something that would help protect animals and nature, I just didn't know what yet."
Life happened and the project slightly changed along the way, but the main idea stayed strong. "After traveling through Bali and diving out there it made me realize the terrible state of our ocean. I realize that it's very much "out of sight, out of mind" for some so I decided to support our under-water friends, the sea turtles. When I learned green sea turtles travel 13,000 miles a year from Bali to San Diego, I felt like the whole thing was meant to be!"
Nevertheless, elephants are still very much close to our hearts and we wanted to make sure they hold a special place within the brand which is why we have so many different elephant pants!
The elephants are here to remind us that we have the strength within to deal with any obstacle and this is why we call our elephant prints "Confidence of the Elephants".
Did you know that herds of Elephants are always led by females?
Get inspired by the powerful nature of the Elephants. And when you forget.... just look at your pants, smile and stand tall.
Handmade with Love. Designed with Care.
Each pair of PI Yoga Pants is designed with care. Inch by inch we are perfecting them to fit just the way they are supposed to and we test them out in the wild before even thinking of releasing them on our website (in hot humid Bali streets, during long airplane rides, at various yoga classes, etc).
We handpick the fabric and design each style to make sure the color and print convey the right message. We believe clothes have a big influence on our mood, so we don't take this lightly.
Our goal is to create clothes that are:
✅ Comfortable (if you ever tried them on you know what I'm talking about here...)
✅ Stylish (dress them up or down)
✅ Empowering (our mission is to empower women of all body types to hop on their mat with pants from size 0 to 24)
✅ Fun (so many different colors & styles to choose from)
✅ Practical (adding pockets everywhere we can, for example...)
✅ Versatile (yoga pants that can be worn at the beach & out for dinner... YES!)
✅ Made with a purpose (each purchase helps save the sea turtles!)
Have you noticed? All our designs have their own fun names. Our intention is to make you feel empowered, inspired, confident and comfortable on and off your yoga mat. Sometimes, all we need in life is a few words of wisdom or encouragement to get us through. Choose the clothes that speak to your heart and your soul and as Marie Kondo says only keep physical items (such as clothing) that bring joy into your life.
"Inspiration can be found in many forms, but it's up to us to take action if we want to make our dreams a reality!"
