AIAYU - Pant
The classic PANT is a signature AIAYU piece. Made from crisp organic cotton, these lounge pants have comfy side pockets and a soft, elasticated waistline with a drawstring that is easy to adjust. A light and breathable style that is perfect for lounging, as sleep wear, or for styling with your favourite knit or shirt for a casual everyday look.
The AIAYU PANT is designed to sit right on the hips. They are small to normal in size, depending on your preferred fit. If you want a loose fit with plenty of room and styling options (highwaist for instance), we suggest you size up one size. If you prefer the pants to sit on the hips, take your normal size.
Aiayu do not believe it is necessary to wash their products before use for safety or toxicity purposes. As a matter of fact, they advocate for reduced washings, as each laundry cycle requires a significant amount of energy and water. Instead, air out your garments to give them a fresh feeling, and only wash when it is absolutely necessary.
Aiayu’s ethos from the beginning has been to actively reduce and avoid chemical additions to their products for the benefit of the planet, their customers, and the people who make their clothes. As a matter of principle, they aim to keep their products as close to nature as possible.
Aiayu’s cotton items are organic and GOTS certified, which means that each step of the supply chain – from seed to final garment – is rigorously assessed and inspected for toxicity and chemical safety. A large proportion of Aiayu’s knits are undyed, using only the existing shade of the natural fibres. When they do choose to dye, it is always done with AZO free and EU REACH standard dyes to ensure the safety their customers and production partners.
Bolivia is where AIAYU started in 2004 where the Danish founder Maria Høgh Heilmann fell in love with a remarkable people whose legacy of craftsmanship with llama wool – an exquisite yet little known material to outsiders – inspired her journey to build a sustainable supply chain which would respect the Bolivian people and environment.
