the wee boo-tique
The products we offer our students in the blue lotus boutique are made by earth-friendly, thoughtful, community-oriented businesses. They are produced by innovative companies, and are not available anywhere else in the Triangle.
We get good stuff from good people that do good things. That’s good karma in action. As part of our own karma yoga, blue lotus donates a percentage of all product sales to Raleigh non-profit organizations.
Peruse our selection of clothes, props (including eco-friendly mats), books, CDs, and DVDs. blue lotus boutique is open 30 minutes prior to the beginning of each class, as well as after each class. The product and brand selection is ever-changing, so read on to learn more about some of these very cool businesses.
This Hawaii-based company is as committed to providing quality garments as it is to being environmentally responsible. Inner Waves Organics cotton clothing for men and women is made with a low-impact dyeing process and sustainable materials sourced from companies that comply with Fair Trade labor practices.
Be Present is a grassroots small, family owned business that values close relationships with clients, environmentally friendly practices, and doing the right thing. Every item of clothing is proudly made in the United States and incorporates the philosophy of the practice into the clothing line.
Looking for stylish, hard-to-find yoga lifestyle clothing? blue lotus has it with OMgirl. The OMgirl line was developed to be part of that peaceful space we look for on and off the mat: balance, harmony, and comfort inside and out. OMgirl continues to impress us with beautiful organic cottons and hip logo tees whose proceeds are donated to charitable causes.
Comfortable (think pajamas!) and stylish (everyone will ask about those pants!), this simple line is as thoughtful as the practice. In the words of owner AK Kennedy, “I saw an opportunity to make graceful gear my business.” And graceful it is!
JadeYoga is committed to making the world’s best performing, most environmentally-friendly yoga mats! JadeYoga plants a tree for every mat sold, and tries to help out many very special people and organizations trying to bring yoga to those who might benefit from it, but might not otherwise have a chance to try – from a abused girls shelter in West Africa to a homeless shelter in Indianapolis to supporting educational programs for children from New York to California.
If the name on the tag leaves any question in your mind, this company invites all of us to live at a higher vibration. They offer a clothing line with eco-friendly options that “encourage awareness, choosing happiness, creating abundance, and manifesting the life you want to live!”
