Marzipants GIVEAWAY

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Marzipants, luxurious cotton fisherman's pants with a modern, ethical twist, are in existence today, after one lady's passion for developing a more flattering fit, to the traditional fisherman's pants she saw through her travels in India.  

"I first came across these wonderful trousers on my travels in India. I loved their simple design and  endless versatility, and felt that, with a few key alterations they would be a huge hit back at home.

I worked tirelessly to perfect the final design, moving towards a more contemporary cut, which gives a more flattering fit, whilst allowing for a complete and free range of movement. I decided from the outset that they were going to be a luxury item; hand crafted from the softest cotton, cut and sewn by skilled artisans belonging to a fair trade workshop. 

I've chosen a collection of vibrant colour which transcend both the seasons & continents. Finally, each pair has been packaged in it's own stylish bag which can be worn over the shoulder to carry anything you should need." Maree Gecks, Marzipants.

Maree Gecks, Marzipants Founder

Marzipants are hand made, fairly traded, lovingly crafted.  Each pair comes in a matching bag, all ethically produced by a small family run factory in India. You can read more on each individual person involved in the family factory right here.

"Marzipants are 100% natural, cotton trousers ideal for; the beach, traveling, yoga, pregnancy, dancing, festivals, simply relaxing and most importantly, having fun"

Marzipants are not limited to adult wear, they are suitable for children too.  I have a pair of Marzipants age 3-6yrs for Jnr RF.  Out of all 12 colours available, I chose indigo blue.  His little Marzipants are gorgeous, so well made, and very reasonably priced:

The beauty of ordering Marzipants for children, apart from their comfort, is the wear they'll get out of them.  Due to the added feature of a button and loop adjustable leg length and elasticated waist, this means they'll last him a few more years, which is a rare bonus considering the pace of which kids grow in height.

The arrival of Marzipants, in a beautifully presented little bag with tag, great for travelling:

Marzipants are unisex, suitable for men, women or children. Their unique wrap-around design means they comfortably fit all shapes and sizes, and I can confirm, they are quick to dry:

Dry in almost half an hour after this particular tap playing incident on a hot day!

Marzipants are available in adult 3/4 length or full length which fit up to size 20, and children's age 0-3 and age 3-10.

Marzipants would make an ideal ethical present for any fun loving adult or child.  They'd be no concern the trousers would not fit, due to their one-size fits all design.

Marzipants are on twitter and facebook, and blog here.

Hi Erica

Hopefully I am entering correctly - the Rafflecopter section was a bit hard to navigate by iphone. Anyway, it told me to go to the Dewdrop design store and look for my favourite item... which is definitely their simple canvas wallets - very cool!

I'd love to win a child's size pair of these trousers for my little neice, particularly after you described all the benefits for children'

Many thanks : )
