The Pure Waste sweatshorts are designed for both the gym and the sofa.
The shorts feature slanted side pockets, one open back pocket and a flexible waistband with drawstrings manufactured from excess knitting machine yarn to reduce waste. The inside material is soft brushed knitted fabric. One of the legs has an interesting detail: a woven label showing the product’s environmental footprint.
The sweatshorts are manufactured from recycled cotton and recycled plastic bottles. Pure waste doesn't dye their products; instead, they get their colours from the cotton waste they are made from. These ecological sweatshorts are available in three stylish colours. They are manufactured responsibly in India.

Please note that the recycling process is not entirely clinical and Pure Waste's products may contain small amounts of different coloured fibers. In dark colours, fibers of different colours do not stand out, but in light colours they are more easily visible. For Pure Waste, these little coloured fibers in the fabric are a feature that reminds them of the uniqueness and origin of their products.

Pehmeät ja mukavat shortsit. Naisille suunnatut shortsimallit ovat usein kovin lyhyitä, tässä unisex-mallissa onriittävän pitkät lahkeet mukavaan olemiseen. Materiaali on melko paksua, joten ihan kesähelteille eivät tule itsellä käyttöön. S-M-kokoisena naisena S-koko oli minulle sopiva.
