Legskin tights are our designer fashion collection made with 190gsm feather light moisture wicking fabric. These beauties are individually hand printed with real artwork produced by our artists in residence. They are then hand cut and sewn in our boutique design studio in Christchurch, New Zealand. We are proud of our zero waste, environmentally sustainable printing practices and we guarantee our workmanship. Legskin tights won’t shrink or fade and the seams and labels are guaranteed to last. Over years of research and development we have created the lightest legging on the market to support flexibility and endurance in extremely hot and sweaty conditions; ideal for Hot Yoga, Dance, Hiking and Pilates. The designer artwork applied to the technical base gives you a garment you can wear for fashion, while never compromising function.
THE “BONA FIDES” DESIGN STORY – Acrylic on canvas
Inspired by the fifth chakra, I’ve created this design to encourage and celebrate the creative spirit within. I’m passionate about art and what it brings to and releases from your life. Finding your voice and expressing it is crucial to staying true to yourself, regardless of the medium; be it song, movement, music, poetry, life itself is a creative act.
The beautiful blue colours of the visuddha chakra inspired my palate. I’ve incorporated symbols and patterns from various natural and theoretical influences, the art nouveau woman suspended above the peacock, juxtaposing gentle grace with pride. The leaping stag and the humble lotus evoke joy and humility. All that is represented in these Legskins celebrates the feminine and the masculine, the yin and yang.
Balinese batiks and Japanese wood block prints have also influenced my story, the artistically stylized waves symbolize the forces behind what we see, the patterns, vibrations, ebbs and flow.
As with all art, it’s in the eye of the beholder, what is your interpretation? What inspires you? Listen, observe, express…let the creativity within reveal itself.

Janna Van Hasselt –
I have been really enjoying the legskins! They are by far the comfiest yoga pants I’ve ever worn. And they are washing well and drying quickly. Such good quality. I had quite a few people come up and mention that they like the designs and would look at the website. I am an artist (printmaker/ceramics/fabric prints etc) and I really like the brightness of the prints. I didn’t expect them to be as bright as they are, as the website shows them a duller/paler than they actually are.

Love, love, love, love, love! They sure do feel like a second skin, and the design makes me smile.
Just ordered another design as these tights just fit so right. Gratitude 🙂
