Bam boo clot hing wit h t he inner harm ony of Cryst als f or cryst al living BAMBOO COLLECTION www.cryst alcupslifest yle.com
Crystal Cups was born out of the desire to incorporate the healing and well being properties of crystals into a contemporary and fashionable range of clothing, made from intelligent multi-tasking fabrics that deliver in all aspects and are as kind to the wearer as they are to the planet. Our debut bamboo range consists of a capsule collection designed with versatility in mind for extreme comfort whilst partaking in yoga,pilates or for everyday wear. Layer it, ruche it, wear it with jeans under a big Aran cardigan and sheepskin boots or wear it to the beach. This naturally thermo-regulating bamboo fabric offers cooling or warming clothing where needed. The super soft bamboo and incredible stretch this collection affords makes all possible, when stretched it loses none of its opaqueness neither is the appearance of the fabric compromised in any way. Add to this the skin soothing properties of this anti-bacterial, anti-static and anti-fungal wonder material which also blocks 98% of the suns UV rays and it becomes apparent how superior bamboo is as a lifestyle choice and statement. When we refer to an intelligent collection it is not only the beneficial properties of bamboo but the cut of our garments which assist movement and fluidity enabling the wearer to feel comfortable and in turn confident. The cleverly though out integration of added panels, empire line and bias cuts with dipped hems are what makes this collection so incredibly easy and pleasurable to wear. At the heart of this company are the crystals that lie next to your heart chakra in the hidden inner pocket that feature on all of our clothing and which we supply with each top. We believe in our fabrics and intelligent designs and want to carry this over in the future to more products in this lifestyle brand including a bamboo denim range and home furnishings to include bedding and nightwear/loungewear.
The Crystalcups crystals are just the right size for your garment: approximately 1cm in diameter and 1.5 cm in length and tumbled.

Photoshoot day for the Bamboo Collection! Here, we invite you to have a sneak peak into what went on behind the scenes in the Crystal Cups studios…
Bunmi Aboaba Founder & CEO Crystal Cups Lifestyle Hailing from Leeds the heart of Bronte Country Bunmi Aboaba is the founder of Crystal Cups Lifestyle. An upbringing in the country where she regularly went hiking and rambling allowed her to appreciate the full effect of the seasonal changes to her environment and all of natures beautiful colours and variations. This made a real impact on Bunmi and is the reason today she is so passionate about the colours used for the range. Discovering and becoming interested in the wellbeing properties of crystals Bunmi went on to study crystal therapy becoming a holistic therapy expert. Holistic therapies are the fastest growing market in the world and Bunmi set about turning her desire to revolutionise the way women interact and wear their crystals by creating Crystal Cups Lifestyle. Coupling her interest in fashion and the holistic benefits of crystals she set about finding a way of incorporating the well being properties of crystals in a contemporary, fashionable active/lifestyle wear range for women who love being stylish and want to benefit from crystals. A contemporary easy to wear clothing line with holistic values. The signature feature lying at the heart of the brand is the hidden integrated pocket that houses the small tumbled crystals next to the heart and 5tht chakra. As Bunmi found out herself keeping crystals on one’s self can be impractical if not worn in the form of jewellery and this is a wonderful way to wear them that if you choose nobody needs to know. Tiring of the sweat inducing synthetic fabrics commonly used in active wear Bunmi wanted to use natural fabrics for her clothing that are as kind to the wearer as they are to the planet. The new yoga range is exclusively made from bamboo which is an organic sustainable fibre that is both thermo-regulating and anti-bacterial. Crystal Cups Lifestyle hopes to expand the product lines to include a bamboo denim range and bamboo bedding and lounge wear.
