Melbourne Designed & Made: Protea Yoga Leggings

Made by hand in Melbourne,
from the ethically focussed yoga label Protea,
these striking leggings have quickly become our favourite
pants for walking, running & of course for yoga.

 
 

Patterns of stripes, florals & geometrics
in monochrome & bright colours
make for happy legs.

The designer behind the label is
Alissa Stytsenko-Berdnik,
who sews all the garments herself,
using locally sourced materials and unique printing.

We love the importance placed on sustainable fashion,
as her garments are designed to be worn & loved
for years on end -  making for a healthier planet.

The quality of the garments & the perfect fit
is hard to describe - they really are beautiful to wear.

Alissa's designs emphasise high quality of fabric and stitching,
which transcends to garments that feel silky-soft,
flexible and incredibly durable.

Sweat and odour resistant.
Sounds unbelievable,
but it’s actually true.

This next-generation polyester fibre
doesn’t absorb moisture
& thus doesn’t accumulate smells;
and knitted structure allows fabric to “breathe”
and evaporate sweat in no time.
— Alissa Stytsenko-Berdnik, Protea designer

Protea leggings come in their own
sweet little matching carry bags.
