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.
Vintage Tattoo (drawing and digital art) was born from my yearning to get the fluffy ego stuff off the yoga mat and let it get dirty. Yoga isn’t always light and fluffy; in fact, it is sometimes challenging, heavy and even emotional. I couldn’t find anything in the yoga apparel world to express this grittiness, so I created it. I hung out in Harley Davidson shops, I took a motorbike handling course, I bought leather things with studs, listened to Joan Jett and collected vintage tattoo books. I got artists drawing what I wanted to see (drawing not my strong point!) and I held my breath as I put out into the world what my heart desired. And it felt awesome! I never considered myself an artist but more of a creative.
My art tends to grow out of a need to absolutely make manifest a dream or inspiration. When I can’t find it anywhere out here in the physical I am forced to birth it. Art to me doesn’t have the energy of reason; it has the energy of release. Something is trying to get out of me and all I need to do is light up the path toward the exit by following what feels open and exciting.
