Slugs & Snails
Slugs & Snails – the original boys and girls tights company. Slugs & Snails is a small family run business which started in 2008 with the birth of their son. Living in an old house, atop a cold windy hill on the west coast of Ireland, keeping their newborn warm was a priority and tights were the obvious solution. Yet when they couldn’t find any tights designed for little boys and girls they decided to come up with their own designs with little boys in mind.
And the result is something extra special, super soft and durable with gender neutral designs that are playful, colourful and unique.
Since their initial launch in 2011 they have grown to an internationally recognised, award winning eco friendly children’s wear brand.
But it’s not just about design, they are also all about quality and comfort. Their tights are made exclusively from a luxurious secret special organic cotton which is flexible and soft and they only use yarns and manufacturing processes which are Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certified.
Nearly all their products are EU made and their new production in Turkey is a factory that only produce organic products and have the highest rating working protection and sustainability.
By producing ethically, they are sure that their products are being used by kids and never made by kids, never damaging local water ways with toxic chemicals and that the growers who harvest their cotton are never exposed to nasty chemicals.
Their quality is so good because they use such high grades of cotton that the tights are unlike any others, they can be worn and passed on to other kids. They have moved tights from being a disposable product to one which now has it’s on resale market because they last so long! Slugs & Snails are the staple of any kids wardrobe and doesn’t cost the earth.
