Luxurious, ethical trousers perfect for yoga, the beach and beyond

Inspired by the bohemian comfort of the popular Thai fisherman pants, Marzipants are a collection of beautifully tailored, luxurious trousers for men, women and children. Their unique wrap around design fits all sizes and makes them perfect for yoga, the beach or simply relaxing.

Marzipants use the finest cotton for a soft, luxurious feel and come in a range of 12 classic colours. Adult sizes are available in ¾ and full length, and children from newborn to ten years. Each pair comes in a beautiful matching bag all ethically produced by a small family-run factory in India.

Fair trade is at the heart of the Marzipants philosophy. All 28 women who handcraft the trousers receive continued training and a good wage to support their families. You can meet them and read their story at www.marzipants.co.uk.
Career history / Company history:
Marzipants founder, Maree Gecks, left her successful job in television production to follow a dream. Driven by a passion to create quality trousers that invoke fun and freedom, and support business in developing countries, Marzipants were born in January 2012. In a very short time they've been featured in Vogue, picked up by Kate Moss and awarded the "New Brand to Watch" prize at the Ethical Fashion Source Awards. They've grown a dedicated following in over 20 countries, and are taking the yoga and beach fashion market by storm.

Back in the summer we applied to the …
