ASH HEATHER ECO-FRIENDLY JOGGER: The jogger you know & LOVE in a brand new fabric that I can't wait to tell you about:
This new, eco-friendly fiber is made of a 50/50 blend of Organic Cotton & Recycled Polyester which provides a light, soft hand-feel.
The recycle part is FASCINATING: Recycled plastic bottles are converted into polyester threads that are used to compose this fabric. Who on earth knew that plastic bottles and polyester threads are made from the same base material? In fact, 5 soda bottles can provide threads for an extra large tee shirt.
It's almost as if Samantha from Bewitched twinkled her nose and a soda bottle becomes a shirt! And if you don't know what Bewitched is.... google it.... and just wait until you get a load of Samantha's mother, Endora!
The textile industry challenged itself to reduce their reliance on the use of polyethylene terephthalate (a type of plastic). This fabric is an example of the types innovations being employed in order to rise to that challenge.
This jogger is slightly lighter in weight than the marled joggers which you may have already tried on. This fabric is roughly 7% lighter in weight. Same Uber-soft touch, same shape-hugging cut - just in a slighter lighter weight.
To me, these sweatshirts are the new sweater and these joggers are the new jeans.
Let me guess, you've been spending a little more time at home lately, right?Yeah me too...
So I gave myself a little project......If I am going to be here, how can I make myself comfortable without looking like and feeling like a complete lazy bones?
I needed a Blade+Blue version of these ugly sweatshirts & sweatpants that were taking up way too much space in my tiny closet.
So here we are and I am SO EXCITED to see this idea come to life. Not even the pandemic could stop this from happening!
I would also like to say that it was a very rewarding experience to meet and work with people who were in the same boat as I was... we were up against the ropes and we had to box our way out of this mess.
I am very proud that these pieces were Made in USA for Blade+Blue.
Check out the images and you'll see that the models are dressed casually (tee & jogger) or more put together with a button down & fleece top). Either way, they look great :)
If you want to see these pieces in real life, just wait on the corner of Eureka St. & Market St. in SF... you are bound to see me walking Blade & Gavin, dashing to the post office before they close, running out to grab my DoorDash order or going for a walk with my Erik. Whatever I am doing, I am in these!
I really like feeling this comfortable but doing it in Blade+Blue style. It makes me feel like not everything had to change in this nutty world.
Each piece sports the Blade+Blue crest next to the kangaroo pocket on the wearer's right.
For sizing information, please see the size chart in the row of images for this style.
