Spirit Girl was started by two Capetonian ladies who wanted to create yoga leggings that were eco-friendly and inspire a free-spirited lifestyle.

Their range of brightly printed yoga leggings and crop tops are made from plastic bottles! The recycled PET, a product made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottle, is woven with spandex to create a COOLMAX® performance fabric. The result is workout pants that are breathable, comfortable, moisture wicking and quick drying. The fabrics are also 50% UV protected making them ideal for outdoor activities.
