Pants for elephants? Well, yeah, kind of. They’re a real thing but they’re actually for you to buy in order to support the African Wildlife Foundation’s efforts to save elephants around the world. For every purchase (depending on the price of the purchase) they donate $1 or $4.
Their products are all covered in artistic designs which, naturally, are covered in elephants. So, if you’re an elephant lover like me, it’s a gold mine filled with harem pants, tapestries, shorts, rompers, jewelry and more!
The business was created with the help of Kickstarter in October of 2014 by two elephant phans, Nathan and James. Nathan Coleman was inspired by pants he had purchased in Chiang Mai, Thailand during a visit in September 2013. With compassion for the decreasing population of elephants, the two decided to partner with the AWF’s Say No Campaign with the goal to end poaching.
About my purchase:
I bought the “Hattie” pants. They have a high elastic waste, loose legs with pockets and elastic bottoms at the ankles similar to their other pant designs. Each pair has a story. Hattie was from New York City’s Central Park zoo. She was said to be, “the most intelligent of all elephants” so it only makes sense that her style warm and bright hues of orange, purple, teal, and tan. The design makes them comfortable and perfect for yoga. They won’t move around while you’re out adventuring or playing upside down.
The Hattie pants are $25 but I used a code from an ambassador to save 15% use the discount code: KristenL
