The introduction of the new Organic Cotton Yoga Collection marks the lucy® brand’s first step towards offering an increased range of sustainable products. “Organic cotton was the most natural way for us to add depth to our eco-friendly offerings. We recognized a demand for sustainable apparel within the yoga marketplace and set out to develop a high quality organic cotton yoga line with the same great lucy® design details our customers know and love,” said Judith Kempe, Director of Design for lucy activewear.

The collection also includes an organic cotton version of the brand’s top-selling Karma Racerback. Featuring a cool palette of blues and lilacs mixed with bright whites and lucy black, the collection’s cover-ups, tanks, and pants are designed to flatter and inspire.
