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.
Henna has been around for centuries and is thought to bring good luck to the wearer. The mystic, glamour and good luck surrounding the ancient form of body art, known as Mehendi has been significant part of wedding tradition in India and the Middle East. Designing the Legskins became a journey into the feminine. The free flowing ever expanding female energy as it embodies birth and creation. Using traditional shapes and placing them in specific areas on the body tells a story of what being a woman can entail. All of our curves and complexities, our softness and our strength. This is my inspiration.
