We recently shared the perfect top to hide your possible “Thanksgiving food baby”, now we want to share our go-to pants that will provide both comfort and style during the food-heavy dinner. If you haven’t heard of The Elephant Pants, you should be paying attention. Not only are they the most comfortable pants you’ll own, they come in a variety of fun colors and elephant prints, and they help raise money to save elephants from illegal poaching.
As we said before, The Elephant Pants are very comfortable. They’re perfect for lounging around the house, yoga, and, of course adding a bit of adventurous style to your Thanksgiving look or any event where you’re sure to overindulge in culinary delights. Boasting two side pockets, an elastic waist and leg holes cinched at the ankles, each style of these printed bohemian pants, which are authentically made in Chiang Mai, Thailand, are named after elephants that were either held in captivity in circuses, zoos, etc, many of which have either died or set freed, or elephants left orphaned by poachers.
Aside from its very cool factor, the most amazing thing about these authentic Thai pants, $1.00 or $2.00 from every pair sold gets donated directly to the African Wildlife Foundation, which helps protect elephants from poachers, an ever increasing problem. Some of our favorite styles include the black and white Black Diamond Harem Pants, named after an Indian elephant with Al G. Barnes Circus; the strikingly vibrant blue and white Old Bet Harem Pants, an early American circus elephant owned by Hachaliah Bailey that was shot and killed while on tour near Alfred, Maine by a farmer; the black and gold Mona Harem Pants, a 60-yr old Asian elephant (maybe the oldest in the US) who was euthanized June 21, 2007 at the Birmingham Zoo in Birmingham, Alabama; and the olive and white Tarra Harem Pants, named after the first elephant to retire at the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.
All styles of The Elephant Pants retail for a wonderfully affordable $18.00 each, a very stylish and inexpensive to support a great cause. We’ve shared our favorite colors, which ones are catching your fashionable eye?
