The label is powered by Irina and Sara who are two yoga, Acroyoga and dance enthusiasts. The style of their hand-sketched yoga pants show the ideas and talent of designer Irina who studied Arts and Fashion in Barcelona and mixed both passions becoming a fashion print designer. On her travels she met Sara on a month long partner acrobatics teacher training in Andalusia and so together they started with Pitaya Yoga. Sara is now living in Berlin and spends her time teaching Handstands and studying movement therapy. She formerly worked in an office job in a London EdTech startup. Joining the team as Head of Product and Marketing, Carmen Dresel is responsible for Pitaya´s Online and Social Media presence.
Together they create artsy yoga wear that is suitable for your yoga practice, and for before and after, too! They are supported by a wide network of friends that are equally free-spirited and full of helpful ideas.

A Yoga label that gives back
The two creators have embarked on a journey to do what they love and show it in the things they create. As they have a strong wish to contribute socially, the brand donates to organisations that are active in areas like the refugee crisis, woman empowerment, animal protection and climate activism - amongst others. The products that lead to donations are marked as 'donation-based'.
Small quantities in a responsible production
The label started off in early 2017 with productions in a family-run business in Guadalajara, Mexico, where Sara was living at the time. As their initial fabric was taken off the market, they started producing with a recycled polyester textile that was especially elaborated for them in Greece. On the quest for a natural fibre textil, they are now working with a middle-size production company in Turkey and produces with a quality fabric made out of bamboo, cotton and elastane.
The oldies, and the newbies!
New designs come out every five to six months. And as soon as the designs are sold out, they are usually gone forever. Except for the two favourite designs which get to be re-stocked from time to time. This way there is always space for new designs but it also means that your favourite design might not be available anymore when you discover it.
So stay up to date with us! We enjoy creating, illustrating, conceptualising and painting too much to just print off our oldies. And you benefit from this with truly unique hand-sketched yoga pants that are limited editions.
