When I started Asteria Active in 2014, I set out with one goal in mind: the perfect legging. By then I was living in workout gear and I wanted to make a cherished unit of clothing even more indispensable. I wanted unparalleled fit and construction. I wanted a legging that would move and recover its shape from warm up to cool down. I wanted to use my years of expertise in pattern making and I wanted to produce ethical clothing in my beloved city of New York.
So what makes Asteria’s zig zag leggings the perfect one?
- The leggings were designed for the gym and can easily be paired with Converse for a relaxed day.
- They chose a premium knit performance technology which doesn’t fade and has a matte finish while also having moisture wicking properties.
