Balasana®, feel-good yoga wear made in France

Clara Daviet | Balasana | Tenues yoga femme

Balasana aims to inspire a new way of thinking, away from the trend of mass consumerism that is currently putting our planet in danger with its negative effects on both humans and the environment.

To do this, we decided to create a brand of eco-friendly yoga wear that is 100% made in France.

From designing the fabric to sewing the finished products, Balasana’s entire manufacturing process takes place in France.

In keeping with our ethics and our commitment to quality, not only are our garments sewn in France, the fabrics we use are also woven, knit and dyed in France, right down to the labels!

But our commitment to quality and sustainability doesn’t stop at our clothes : all of our packages are shipped in linen pouches and 100% recyclable boxes.

To have an even more positive impact on the environment, for every order placed with Balasana, we plant a tree in France with the help of our partners at Reforest’action.

 

Balasana® clothes are also full of character, like those who wear it : we imagine them to be daring, feminine and free-spirited!

Balasana® yoga wear is made for a discerning clientele, who cares about comfort, style and the world around them.

Each piece in our collection is designed to be a pleasure to wear, a good feeling to carry with you all day.

Balasana®, made by skilled artisans in France

Wearing a Balasana®, garment means wearing a high-quality, locally-produced piece of clothing that is 100% made in France and looks great before, during and after yoga class!

All of the materials that we use are vegan: we don’t use any wool, silk or leather.

Balasana® fabrics are eco-friendly and ethically-produced, and have been carefully designed to be:

  • Comfortable : made of super-soft fabric to provide optimal comfort and a full range of movement
  • Practical : Fast-drying
  • Soft : It’s a key feature of organic cotton – it’s extra-extra soft and anti-allergenic.

 

All suppliers have been selected by Balasana® with the utmost of care, and were chosen for their eco-friendly manufacturing processes, taking into account :

  • The use of products that are safe for people and for the environment
  • Waste water treatment practices
  • Recycling practices
  • Energy-saving initiatives

Weaving, dyeing, sewing, embroidery, and label production all take place in France, with a conscious and artisanal approach :

  • GOTS-certified organic cotton is produced in Aube
  • Breathable Oeko-Tex fabrics are produced in Rhône
  • 100% natural linen is produced in Maine-et-Loire
  • Patterns and production takes place in Vendée
  • Embroidery is done in Alpes-Maritimes

 

What do GOTS and Oeko-Tex certifications mean?

  • GOTS guarantees that the entire manufacturing process is organic, from harvesting to labelling, while also guaranteeing the social engagement of producers and manufacturers
  • Though not necessarily organic, fabric that is certified Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is guaranteed to be safe for consumer health.

Is organic cotton really better for the environment?

Yes, as conventional cotton growing is undoubtedly more polluting, using 2.5% of farmland but 25% of pesticides (source: WHO). It also requires a lot of water : two-thirds of the world’s drinkable water supply (source: French National Center for Scientific Research). The unfortunate trend of fast fashion (disposable items of clothing that are produced cheaply and replaced regularly) has disastrous consequences on water and soil quality, as well as on the health of people.

Organic cotton offers an essential alternative. It uses a lot less water, thanks to artisanal irrigation methods. No chemical products (GMOs, chlorine or others) are used in the chain of production (cleaning and spinning) and harvesting is done by hand. Farmers make their own inputs (fertilizer and seeds from compost). They don’t get into debt because of less-than-ethical suppliers, and they don’t become ill from repeated contact with dangerous substances.
