SUSTAINABLE | MINIMAL WASTE
Simply good - without trying to be.
The only fancy thing about ZONE by Lydia's Hemp Bike Short is the material, cut and feel, as it should be. There are no pockets for distracting gadgets and no weird butt-lifting-accentuating-seams.
Made from a luxe blend of hemp and organic cotton jersey with a tiny bit of spandex, ZONE by Lydia's bike short is just lovely the way it is. The hemp bike shorts are comfortable without being too compressive and sits mid-thigh and semi-high on the waist to flatter while you flutter, run, jump, flow, stretch and bend.
The hemp fabric is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, preventing odour and perfect for hot, sweaty yoga classes and for those with allergies and sensitive skin. The hemp short's fabric absorbs moisture quickly and is soft and comfortable on the skin. Durable, long-lasting and maintaining shape, these bike shorts are made to be worn for years to come.
Slow fashion. Sustainable activewear. Made to stand the test of time and trends. Designed in Lorne, Australia and made from 53% organic hemp, 42% organic cotton and 5% spandex.

ZONE by Lydia is not into fast fashion. They're into sustainable fashion.
One of the biggest reasons they have chosen to use hemp for their unisex apparel is that Industrial Hemp has the potential to clean the atmosphere and protect the environment and even reverse the damage done to it.
Dubbed the 'King of Carbon Sequestration', Industrial hemp absorbs 4 times more CO2 than trees! It takes as little as 90 days to cultivate and requires significantly less water than cotton.
Hemp supplies its own nutrients to the soil, which replenishes its fertility, and needs no toxic chemicals, pesticides or insecticides in order to grow. It is truly the most impressive super fibre.
All ZONE products are packaged and sent in plastic-free packaging. Their apparel range is packaged in biodegradable and compostable material. When the items are shipped they are also sent in biodegradable satchels.
Hemp fabric is an amazing super-fibre. It is natural, durable, strong, yet soft and comfortable. ZONE by Lydia's garments are made to stand the test of time. They have been vigorously putting them through their paces and basically doing everything you shouldn’t do to your clothing… like repeatedly machine washing on hot cycles and throwing them into the dryer [cringe!] Amazingly resilient, these test garments have bounced back over and over again to their original form.
Whilst that is great to know, we want you to prolong your garment’s life cycle as much as possible. To do that, we recommend you try to follow these care instructions:
- Wash the garment inside out to protect the print.
- Machine wash on a cold, gentle cycle.
- Wash with like colours.
- Do not bleach it or soak.
- Do not use fabric softener - the fabric is soft enough!
- Try not to tumble dry and dry straight after washing with print opened flat.
- Use a cool iron (if needed). Do not iron over the print.
- Do not dry clean.
