First of all I would like to start by saying a very happy new year to everyone and apologise for my lack of posting! The end of year always marks a very busy time for me but I am back and ready to go!
A bit about the owner.
I wanted to start 2019 with a blog post about a very lovely yoga brand by the name of Kismet. Kismet is a yoga clothing brand which was founded on the back on a yoga practice. Sylvia who founded Kismet is an avid yoga practitioner and has had the pleasure of practicing in Mysore, Goa, Koh Phanghan and Brazil.
I met Sylvia last year after we connected online. I actually meet a lot of people this way due to the joy of social media! After a little back and forth, we eventually arranged to meet at our store, Yin Nation in Bonn. She is a warm, expressive and passionate woman who knows her business inside and out. She has spent many years sourcing only the best material and working with small businesses who focus of quality and high social standards. She also know her customers. A kismet wearer is a conscious buying who cares about sustainability, quality and style. It’s not a brand for the teenage market which I kind of love.
So I’m now in my earlier thirties and I have begun to notice a change in my yoga clothing tastes. Kismet designs are for a more sophisticated and mature buyer looking for something a bit special and items that were build to last. When I spend my own hard-earned pennies on yoga clothing I really do look for items of great quality, items that will last the test of time and a strong yoga practice. I’m also not too old or above colourful and creative clothing! Kismet have some really cool designs in leggings which combine quality and creativity wonderfully.
It’s not all about the looks though. Kismet combines comfort and functionality without compromising on anything! This is very obvious when you look at their Radha bra. The Radha bra is made from recycled polyester and gives soft support from a to e cup which is great news for the big boobied yogis out there! PLUS they give a lovely shape to the ladies. You are perfectly covered in every movement and the bra gives you the freedom to breath deeply without any tightness or restriction. I am actually wearing this bra in the photo and if you notice, all is safe and well!
Looking for Kismet?
Kismet is a company with a philosophy deeply grounded in the belief of fairness, equality and the power of inspiration and friendship. They make sure all their manufacturers are small businesses of high quality and social standards which makes it very hard not to LOVE this beautiful yoga brand. If your interested in learning more about Kismet please head over to their website or you can pop in to Yin Nation store in Bonn as Kismet is stocked!
