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.
It begins with the darkness of the feminine, the yin holds this darkness –
‘swollen purple with portent’.* The breath – the wolf’s song, the moon and crystals illuminate within the stillness of this darkness.
The yang, the masculine side is the expression, the expansion, the blooming.
The goddess stands within the balance of her own polar energies- the two blue tigers that emerge from her veil.
They are a part of her. One is her consciousness; the colour reflected in her eyes; it prowls above her head, protective, aware.
The other represents her physical body, nurtured, serene, it is fed from her body whilst it’s back foot is anchored to her gown.
With one hand she expresses her life force, with the other in ‘gyan mudra’
she receives and expands her individual courage and wisdom.
The energy of the sun radiates from her being.
She is surrounded by beauty, vibrant blooms of flowers in their full expression.
Beneath her left foot uncoils the serpent of Kundalini energy.
