Hi, I’m Amelia!
WELCOME TO PRANA VIDA
Welcome to Prana Vida, your hub for seriously comfy eco-friendly essentials made right here in Canada. I started Prana Vida back in 2013 because I couldn’t find a source of ethically made clothing that I truly trusted and loved. So I started making some of my own clothing, and soon I had so many requests from friends and yoga students that I figured I needed a website, and Prana Vida was born.
Since then, Prana Vida has grown and evolved in so many beautiful ways, as has my mission and this community. After the sudden and unexpected death of my firstborn Landon in 2014, I created designs inspired by symbols that connected me to his brief yet powerful life. After my daughter Lily was born in 2015, I created a collection of mom and mini yoga leggings. As I became more interested in veganism and zero waste and aware of the environmental impact of the garment industry, I committed to making our clothing with the most eco-friendly natural and recycled fabric options, and shipping our clothing plastic-free in compostable paper or cardboard packaging. And, having carried three babies (my youngest Ava was born June 2019) and breastfed for the past 4 years and counting, it’s important to me that our clothing is maternity, postpartum and nursing friendly.
While Prana Vida has changed so much since those early years of cutting fabric in my windowless basement laundry room, my commitment to bringing you (and me!) the best of the best has only gotten bigger. All Prana Vida is still made in Canada in Vancouver and Winnipeg, and the goal is to eventually offer all your essentials in a complete capsule wardrobe (stay tuned as we release a new addition or two every season!).
