About

Laya Active
The way you move is authentically yours, your clothing should be, too!  Our leggings are designed to be a common thread between your active life and your social life. We've been bringing you that Nola flair since 2016! All of our products are designed in New Orleans and manufactured in the USA.
Laya is an environmentally conscious brand. We are mindful about our manufacturing processes, our materials, and our packaging. We couldn't have it any other way! 
  
The Women Behind the Brand
The first New Orleans inspired active brand was founded by Mariesa Barbara, a New Orleans native, who is passionate about yoga, fashion, and fun. Mariesa loves dreaming up design ideas to showcase our unique New Orleans culture. She is a physical therapist who enjoys new learning experiences as a small business owner.
Rachelle Arnold found her passion for yoga in Denver, CO and when she returned home (New Orleans) in 2015 she was on the hunt to find New Orleans flair yoga pants. That is how Mariesa and Rachelle's friendship blossomed! Rachelle has a strong business background and an entrepreneurial spirit. She is passionate about movement, spreading love and joy to the community, and making bad ass and unique athleisure apparel.
