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.
Nature has a beautiful palette of texture and colour. The Tribal design is made with a combination of found and natural materials and it came together like the ultimate indigenous crafting project. Being born in Canada and spending time with its native people I was always fascinated by their craft.
While I was creating Tribal, I went deep into my imagination to find a picture of what my tribe would wear, should I belong to one. Being a traveler I opened my design up to the global resources of natural objects and used shells from one country, feathers from another and woven fibres from different locations. With today’s technology we get to mix media and create amazing things. This is my variation of the natural environment within a technical and synthetic medium, bridging two of the worlds I live in together into my design.
