They no longer have a size and material tag - just faint white printing on the fabric. And the fabric material seems lighter and thinner. It's too bad as I really liked the quality of the previous pants and they were less expensive!
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent purchase of the Mana Pant. We are sorry to hear that you are less than thrilled with your new clothing. Customer satisfaction is extremely important to us so I would like to address a few of your concerns about the Mana Pants you purchased.
1) Change in Tags: We've chooses to use Inkcup Tag-less labels because they are way more sustainable! It takes some getting used to but this really is a much better environmental choice. Here's a link if you're interested in reading more about our choice.
2) Fabric: We are using the exact same fabric that we have always used and the fabric we made your Mana Pants from was woven at the same fabric mill Inner Waves has used since the early 2000's. That being said, since our fabric is woven from organic plant fibers, every batch is slightly different due to many factors relating to the cotton and the season it was grown in. Over the years, there have always been slight variations in our fabric for this reason. We do the best that we can do, but some factors are out of our control due to Mother Nature and her complexity :)
3) Price: We are a really tiny company and our production costs have gone up a lot over the past few years due to supply chain issues as well as increasing manufacturing costs in the USA. We wish we did not have to raise prices ever, but the reality for us is that we want to stay in business and keep providing the best quality clothing we can for our customers.
Thank you again for taking the time to write your review. If you don't feel like you got the value you were expecting, we are happy to accept a return. We truly do want you to LOVE every piece of Inner Waves Clothing you buy!
I like the mana pants when new, but they fade more quickly than I would prefer as they are washed and dried.
Thank you for taking the time to review your Mana Pants. We are happy to hear that you like them!
Regarding the color, we make two recommendations for washing and care. The color stays bold longest when the clothing is washed on cold and hung to dry or tumble dry low. We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible so we stay away from the colorfast finishing treatments many clothing companies use to make color last longer. We refuse to use these treatments as they are very toxic to the environment as well as to the health of the consumer. We do pride our selves in the permeance of the construction of our clothing as well as the high quality fabrics we use. We do our best with the dyes & use only low impact, non-toxic dyes. The highest priority for us is that the clothing is non-toxic.
Thank you again for your feedback and we hope you enjoy your Mana Pants for many years to come :)
Great pants! Soft cloth, good elastic that won’t squash your middle. Roomy but not baggy.
Just received the full and cropped Mana pant and am over the moon. Really a nice fit, while allowing for flexibility. Bummed there aren't more colors available right now, or I'd have one of each!
Bottom line: you get what you pay for.
We are thrilled that you Love your Mana Pants and Mana Crop Pants. More colors arriving this week! Thank you so very much for your glowing review. It made our day!
