Cactus Print Women's Leggings


Enjoy all-new, all-local fashion from an independent designer.

Thank you for visiting Bahasha. My name is Pauline, the owner and sole designer for the shop. Here you'll find a broad selection of original clothing designs I create myself here in Canada.

• About My Products

My focus is on creating cute, fun, and eye-catching clothing for women. I prefer close fitting fabrics like spandex, not just because they're so comfortable, but also because they really allow the prints to come alive. Finding the perfect combination of style, fabric, and print is the most rewarding part of what I do.

As an independent designer, I send my original designs to a local manufacturer who prints the digital images directly onto the fabric. Having a close relationship with a manufacturer is one of the most important elements of managing my business, and I feel truly fortunate to have an outside partner I can trust to take care of my designs.

• About My Designs

Most of my prints are inspired by nature or traditional tribal patterns. I adapt these by adding a modern twist and bright, vibrant hues. I also try to emphasize the inherent geometric patterns that occur throughout nature. Often it's these shapes that draw me to a particular source in the first place.

Nearly every pattern is a 100% original design that I've created here in my studio. It's my goal to stay true to the source (be it fish scales or the magnificent hide of a wild animal), while still adding my own, totally unique touch to every piece.

Once again, thank you for stopping by my shop. Please take a few moments to browse through my listings and see what I have to offer. It's my hope you'll find something that speaks to you and will show your personality to the world.

    Our manufacturer prints and hand sews our designs using high quality fabrics and standards. We like the fact that they are local manufacturers who understands the needs of an artist.
