We are obsessed with leggings.
After trying a pair of every known brand on the market (in hopes of finding the perfect pair), we came out empty handed. We understand the struggle of looking for the perfect pair of leggings that are comfortable enough to wear all day, without riding up, leaving elastic marks or having to worry about them being see-through.
You're forced to chose between the lesser of two evils:
- Cheap, low quality leggings -- which are more often than not see-through and won’t make it through a few loads of laundry before pilling; or
- Expensive, better quality leggings -- which, let’s be real, still end up being see-through after a couple washes, and cost an arm and a leg.
This is why we created Anesi, a team of passionate legging-lovers who came together to make premium leggings accessible to everyone. We strongly believe that you shouldn’t have to choose between cheap or overpriced leggings.
For the past year, we’ve worked on creating leggings designed to hug every curve of your body perfectly. By combining our team’s passion, years of experience in the apparel industry and the expertise of a world-renowned pattern maker, we’ve created what we believe are the world’s most comfortable leggings.
Naturally, after working with a pattern maker to make sure that the design of the legging would follow every curve of your body, we took our design to a materials engineer with over 15 years of experience in the apparel industry.
Anesi settled for nothing less than absolute comfort. You deserve to feel amazing in your leggings, whether you’re going to the office, out for a jog or even out for a night on the town. After looking at all possible materials and compositions, we created the ultimate blend of nylon and lycra, optimized to be as comfortable as possible, while still keeping breathability of the fabric intact.
We believe details are important. That’s why every feature of the leggings have specifically been thought out with your daily use in mind.
The High Waist
It hugs your waist just right, and is there to stay through work and play. Creating a design that’s elastic-free ensures that your Anesi leggings won’t leave any painful red marks on your waist. As an added bonus, the high waist is also figure flattering.
Using flatlock stitching allows the fabric to sit flat against your skin, without any seams irritating you. This stitching technique maximizes durability of the fabric, so go ahead -- jog, squat or even break dance knowing with full confidence your Anesi leggings can handle anything.
Built right into the waistband, it’s perfect for keeping small valuables safe while you’re on the go.
With a perfect blend of nylon and spandex , Anesi is thick enough to be durable while still allowing for quick drying, keeping you fresh and dry during workouts.
It was important to us that our product be made ethically, and locally. We did this by partnering with a pattern maker, materials engineer, manufacturer and even our courier service right in our own backyard.
We’re proud to say that the entire process, from concept to product occurs in Toronto (other than our custom fabric, which is milled in Montréal).
By selling directly to you online, we eliminate all the unnecessary spending, leaving out the middlemen, expensive retail storefronts and the excessive marketing. We're extremely excited to be able to offer Anesi to you at 30% (or more) off the price of luxury brands.
Who wouldn't love to get premium leggings, without the premium price? Once the campaign is over, our promise to you is that you'll be able to purchase the leggings at wholesale prices,forever.
First of all, thank you to our family and friends for supporting us in everything we do. You know who you are. There have been countless times where we’ve needed your help and you’ve been there every single time. Without you, Anesi wouldn’t have been possible.
These few people worked harder than anyone else we know. Thank you.

Risks and challenges
Production could pose any number of challenges, but our team is experienced in the apparel industry, and partnered with an established manufacturer, as well as fabric milling facility.
Together, we know what pitfalls to look out for and most importantly, how to control for quality. We have gone through two major prototypes of the design. After rigorous testing, the design is now finalized and ready to get in your hands.
As soon as the Kickstarter campaign is complete, the fabric milling facility will be notified to start producing the material, in order to begin our production run as soon as possible.
We are confident that we will ship you a pair of leggings that will exceed all your expectations. We believe in transparency, and will continue to keep our backers in the loop and up to date throughout this process.
We made sure to think of every detail, right down to the company that will be shipping our product to you. Our fulfillment partner has been operating reliably for years, with an amazing track record. We're proud to announce that Anesi will be available to be shipped worldwide.
We have worked hard over the past year to make sure we deliver a product you'll love. We can't wait for you to join the movement!
