weargrace is a new collection of yogawear that resonates well beyond the confines of traditional athletic clothing. transmitting the values of yoga practice into everyday life, the brand offers deeper meaning to the products we buy and the clothes we wear. weargrace’s foundation embraces ancient wisdom awareness, yet each piece has been conceived for the reality and needs of an active, modern world. ancient themes and symbols blend with contemporary forms creating an innovative duality where looking inward is just as important as the beauty that reverberates outward.

infinity (also eternity) - in ancient india and tibet, this symbol represented perfection, dualism, and unity between male and female. in the occult tarot it is linked to magic and represents equilibrium or the balance of various forces..in modern times, it became a secular mathematical symbol for infinity in numbers, time or space. the infinity design reminds us of the innate timelessness and balance in ourselves and the universe.

tibetan prayer flags
tibetan buddhist prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. the prayers depicted on the flags, when blown by the wind, are said to purify and sanctify the air, spreading good will and compassion into all pervading space. these blessings are then carried to all beings. the row of colorful rectangles hanging from weargrace garments are not prayer flags, but a graphic representation of them meant to remind us of this beautiful tradition and gently guide us to recognize the peace, compassion, strength and wisdom within ourselves and others.
wear grace to live life
grace is unmerited favor, a bestowal of blessings, a gift that falls upon us. grace is soft and strong at the same time. it is spontaneous and stable, awake and silent. grace is a collection of clothing whose forms and patterns are inspired by ancient yogic teachings and devotionalwear. it can provoke or gently guide people to question what is, to look deeper into themselves, to be silent enough to see and understand. on the mat, off the mat, for yoga, for life, with grace.
