The Southwest Crops were a collaboration designed in-house by two of our team members; Alessa Garcia and Tonia Lenk. Tonia, a member of the Tsimshian Nation and graphic artist, was elated when asked to assist on this design. The motif is a blend of rich patterns and is a nod to our Southwest friends. This is not a traditional or direct representation of Southwest art, but instead an original design inspired by Southwest Aztec artwork.
Here is our legging story:
First, it began with a desire to create an ULTIMATE legging. We sourced a fabric that has 8-WAY STRETCH, the best stretch of any legging on the market today. They don't fade, stretch out or shrink yet still have wicking ability to keep you dry. The best part? They ALWAYS stay opaque and will never go sheer.
What does this mean for you? Leggings that SUPPORT you, COVER you, STRETCH with you and NEVER leave you exposed. So there you have it. We've poured our heart and soul into these leggings so that we can call them SILVER ICING EXCLUSIVES. You literally cannot get them anywhere else.

I am wearing the Southwest Crops 12 inch rise in XL. The stretchy fabric is just the right thickness, not thin and not too thick. The sizing is true to size, as I am a 5' 10" amazon, and the leggings didn’t constrict my thighs or calves. Super comfy! They were super easy to put on, and I feel the nicest tummy flattering with the 12 inch rise. The gorgeous pattern speaks to my soul, though I may be a little biased (wink wink) The tribal on-trend design has me walking tall and proud as a strong Indigenous woman, and I know I am going to get a lot of wear out of these.
How gorgeous are these. I love the almost calming but detailed print Tonia & Alessa created here and the fact that we are continuing the conversation, as Tonia has stated. These are white-backed so I am going to stick with a size small. These are made from our 8-way original stretch fabric meaning they're ideal for high-performance activities and have all of the amazing properties as our other 8-way leggings. Moisture-wicking, not see-through, buttery soft and amazingly comfortable. I will be sticking with my true size in these (S), as they're a white-backed legging.
Oh my goodness, these crops are possibly my new favourite!! This pattern has been so beautifully created by Alessa and Tonia! The strong tribal pattern mixed with the beautiful soft pink details is the perfect pairing! They are made of our fabulous 8 way stretch with a white backing. I am wearing an XL and it's the size I will purchase!
