We are superly excited to introduce Slugs&Snails to you!
A family run company who produce tights for boys.
Yep, thats right, tights. For. Boys.
I know, you might be thinking the same as I was to begin with - 'What the heck?'
A friend of mine who has a couple of boys used to dress them in tights and I didn't quite get it
straight away. But then I had my daughter and found that the whole 'baby keeping their socks on'
game rather annoying so always resorted to tights. And really, why can't boys wear tights....
especially when there as cool as these little fellas.
The company was started in 2008 by Kat Redmond after she had had her son Noah. Living on
a hill in an old house on the west coast of Ireland, her main priority was keeping Noah as warm
and cosy as possible so thought tights were the obvious solution. Although no one, no where
produced tights for boys. So Kat and her family came up Slugs&Snails!
Not only are the tights designs super cool but the quality of them is outstanding. They have
non-slip sloes, are made from silicone washed combed cotton which is flexible and soft and they
only use yarns and manufacturing processes which are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified, giving
you confidence that their products are free of any harmful substances or chemicals, safeguarding
your child’s health and the environment.
Four years on from the beginning and these tights are gaining some serious kudos.
Celebrities such as Cerys Matthews, Jasmine Guinness and Dawn Porter have all been praising the tights.
They are also up for a string of awards too for innovation and design.
We hope you like them too.
We think they fit in perfectly into our boutique.
These make perfect gifts and we think not just for the boys either!!
