Following its smart and stylish collaboration with ready-to-wear label A.P.C. earlier this year, athleisure brand Outdoor Voices are back with a slightly different offering: yoga blocks.
The company is elevating the look of your workout with a series of cork - rather than the usual plastic foam - fitness accessories. The $150 "Shapes Bundle" includes a rectangular block, a triangular block, and a roller, and they look as good on a coffee table as they do on a yoga mat.
Joey Guerra, who handled the design of the collection, told Wired:
“Those things (regular yoga blocks) are pretty unattractive, and you don’t want to leave those ugly foam pink shapes lying around. We looked at wood, felt, and other holistic materials, but we drove cork home pretty early on. Cork is sustainable, it grows in the bark of trees, is antimicrobial, and can be milled really easily into any shape you need.”
The Outdoor Voices "Shapes Bundle" is available to purchase now.
