Ultra Comfortable

Dyed by local textile artist Anna Joyce, Hot Hibiscus is a wild blend of very saturated tangerine orange and a deep blue based magenta. The magic of ice dye happens when the dye pigments split apart as they melt with the ice and create an entire rainbow of colors in the textile. The pops of electric cyan, yellow and magenta are the result from this color blend. The vibrant dye patterns in the Hot Hibiscus colorway are fun and unexpected.

There is a variation between each pair as no two dyed items are alike (you won't be receiving the exact colorway you see the in the photos).  

Anna Joyce is an artist, textile designer and author based in Portland, Oregon. Joyce is best known for her colorful hand dyed clothing and housewares collections. She has published two books, one on printing and painting called STAMP STENCIL PAINT (Abrams NY 2015) and HAND DYED (Abrams NY 2019) on dyeing by hand using indigo and fiber reactive dye.

 

We recommend washing your dyed items with like-colors for the first few washes, then as normal.

No exchanges or returns on limited edition pairs. Please message us with any questions about fit if this is your first pair of Thunderpants!

The Bike Shorts are sized SM - 3XL and made with the same signature 90/10 organic cotton/spandex fabric as our undies. They are designed with a 4” wide double lined waistband that sits high on the waist, and a tight fitting leg ending about mid-thigh. The Bike Shorts are perfect for wearing under skirts and dresses to eliminate the dreaded thigh rub! They can be worn alone as well, but the material might feel thinner than a traditional legging (depending on the brand) so comfort levels may vary!

Thunderpants 90% organic cotton/10% spandex fabric is sturdy, very stretchy, and has great retention to give our garments just enough stretch and bounce back. It helps the undies to stay up and on, and the other garments to keep their shape without sagging or bagging. We use the same soft organic cotton blend to cut our binding into a wide strip instead of using elastic so their is never any irritating elastic against your skin. All the garments are made locally and lovingly in Portland, OR.

Make sure to wash these alone or with like-colors for the first few washes (don't wash them with whites right away!). The dyeing process does leave a faint scent, this is not scented detergent, we only use un-scented when washing before and after dyeing. The smell of the dyeing process will fade over time.

To preserve the vibrant colors and life of the fabric we suggest you do not soak or bleach your Thunderpants items. Use a gentle detergent in a cold machine wash and dry your Thunderpants on the line (they will survive drying on low, but may fade a bit and cut down slightly on longevity). If you do wash warm or dry, make sure not to use too much heat as heat will break down the spandex!
