WE ARE CONSCIOUS YOGIS
AND EARTH IS OUR MAT

At Arctic Flamingo, we don’t just make comfortable, eco-friendly yoga leggings with unique prints that are as soft as the Arctic snow. We challenge you to think about the impact your actions and buying decisions have on the environment. We want you to carry a message of eco-consciousness wherever you go. Wearing Arctic Flamingo leggings is a statement: a way of empowering yourself and others to care about the world.

OUR FOUNDER, DESIGNER AND CREATIVE MIND

Inkeri Glova is the founder, designer and creative mind behind Arctic Flamingo. After practising yoga for several years, curiosity and the need for her own unique leggings got her thinking about how to create leggings herself. Many attempts and failures later, the leggings left the sewing table in her living room and made their way into the wide world.

Originally from Finland, it was only natural that Inkeri should seek inspiration in the nature of the Arctic: in Finland, people traditionally have a close relationship with nature. These Nordic roots represent stillness, harmony, stability and being at one with nature. Arctic Flamingo combines them with bold, colourful tropical birds that embody freedom and a lust for life. For Inkeri, these two polar opposites tell a story about two complementary pairs in the same way as sky and earth, cold and warmth, being grounded and uplifted.

A MORE CONSCIOUS FUTURE

As a mother of two small children, it should be no surprise that Inkeri thinks about the legacy that we will leave for future generations. For Inkeri, it was never just about creating beautiful and unique leggings but also about having a positive impact on the world and society: paying attention to how the product is made, where it is made, what it is made of, and by whom. Looking at the bigger picture, she thinks being environmentally friendly means being aware and asking questions – before you can care about something, you need to know about it.

Inkeri sees her brand as a megaphone for like-minded yogis and yoginis around the world, empowering them to spread the message of conscious living and sustainable choices. People who want to support local leaders and politicians that share their passion. Arctic Flamingo is for people who care enough to see that caring isn’t enough – people who want to put words into action.
