There is something of a cult following for brands like Sweaty Betty. When I left my office job, yoga pants became a part of my wardrobe on an almost daily basis, both for exercising and as part of my outfits more generally.

Most yoga clothing on the market is not ethical. It is made using harmful fabrics and processes.

I have done some research to find some of the best closet options.

The best yoga pants are available.

There are some great options here, that fit some of the boxes: ethical fashion, sustainable fashion, vegan fashion and slow fashion.
