Whether I’m working out, enjoying a cozy fall day at home, or running errands, I am always looking to rep my geeky style. (Life is too short to wear “normal” clothes!) Surprisingly, it’s been harder than I would have thought to find quality, geeky leggings and athletic gear. But that’s all changed now that I’ve been introduced to Lorica Clothing!

Lorica Clothing is a female-led sustainable athleisure brand that is inspired by REAL armor. Many of the pieces are designed to replicate real armor pieces in exact detail, down to the number of rivets. Most recently, Lorica released new pieces inspired by Henry the VIII’s armor, allowing women to take on the world (or maybe just yoga class) in these historically-inspired leggings, shorts, tops, skater dresses, and bring epic medieval fantasy vibes to your routine.

One of my favorite Lorica items is the Valiant Pocket Leggings — part of an exclusive design collaboration with Kelsey Eng. The original design mirrors that of a medieval tapestry with intricate designs, including four unique LADY knights.

Not only are these leggings full of girl power, they’re also incredibly comfortable (even though they are made with recycled plastic bottles — more on that below!).

About Lorica Clothing

Lorica Clothing began in March 2017 when the revolutionary designer Elena Hutchinson launched a Kickstarter campaign with the hope of raising $10,000 to bring the world a sustainable athleisure line based on her love of armor and all things medieval. To her surprise, she went on to raise almost $200,000!

Lorica, which is Latin for body armor, offers sustainable, functional athleisure pieces in regular and plus sizes for women, as well as men’s fits. Each marvelous design is based on a REAL historic suit of armor. Some of which are on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

All Lorica items are made in the USA by female-owned businesses with fabrics derived from recycled bottles — about 25 plastic water bottles go into each pair of Lorica leggings and every piece in the line is made with recycled materials! So far, Lorica has used 87,600 recycled plastic bottles to make their leggings.

    Talk about a really neat brand! I’ll have to check them out further for Christmas gifts (or maybe even treating myself). I love that they’re made from sustainable materials and that they replicate real armor!

    These are so cool! I am loving the sports bras and the leggings that look like chain link. Also, how awesome that they are made with recycled bottles?!
