All About Silly Silas

Silly Silas aims to capture the laughter of children playing outside on the streets of former Czechoslovakia and is reminiscent of comfort and durability. 

Silly Silas organic tights are traditionally produced in small workshops in the Czech Republic where the tradition of tights for children has run strong for many generations. They are produced by artisans who have been perfecting their craft for decades.

What is Silly Silas? 

Founded by Terezia Prazska, Silly Silas was created on the foundation of tradition and nostalgia.

When Prazska first had her son Elias, her mom gave her a pair of traditional tights with braces and she instantly fell in love with the style. She learned they were very popular in Czechoslovakia in the 1950’s and 1960’s. While she was not born in that era, she immediately wanted to bring them back for her children. Appreciating the no-fuss simplicity of the tights, Prazska set out to create her own while paying homage to the original style, and Silly Silas was born.

Silly Silas tights are manufactured in a traditional, small production factory in the heart of Europe in the Czech Republic. They are made with vintage and traditional technology to ensure they are 100% cotton and free from added elastane. Each pair is carefully checked and after the last stitch is sewn they are placed on a heated baby leg form. Finally, they are folded and packaged for their new homes. A small and traditional manufacturing process is very important to the brand to preserve the craft and uniqueness of vintage production shops.
