Clothing for Spinners

All spinners (people who spin poi, staves, etc.) have their own unique style of pants they like to spin in. Here is a quick guide so a few of the many types you may see.

1: Action Pants

Sold by Flowtoys in California, these are sold two varieties, Poplins and The Performer.

Poplins, a light weight colorful cotton pant, are great for warmer weather. They are loosely styled after Thai Fisherman Pants (covered below).

The Performer is a heavier cotton pant of similar style. It is very… samurai meets yogi.

2: Thai Fisherman Pants

Thai fisherman pants have been worn for hundreds of years by the native fishermen of Thailand. They are a wrap pant with a fabric tie around the waist. Although originally from Thailand, thai fisherman pants are also worn in Vietnam and throughout that region. They have become increasingly popular with tourists. Thai fisherman pants are most commonly made of cotton, although some are made of rayon.
Do not wear rayon or any other synthetic while spinning fire. Synthetics and fire do not mix!

3: Harem, Aladdin, or Parachute Pants

Harem pants originated in India. I really don’t think they need much introduction.

I know that I have probably missed a lot of awesome pant varieties. If I have, I apologize. Drop me a line and tell me about them. I’ll be sure to include them here.
