About Us


Slugs & Snails – the original boy’s and girl’s tights company. Slugs & Snails was born on a windy hill in the wild West of Ireland where one little family realised how functional tights were for their baby boy and set about starting a company that made funky, organic tights for all kids, big and small. 

Slugs & Snails was three years in development and proudly launched in 2011 as the first company dedicated to unisex tights for kids. Since it’s birth, Slugs & Snails has grown to become an internally recognised, award winning eco friendly children’s wear brand. Slugs & Snails products are famous for their quirky gender neutral designs, which last and last season on season offering both superb value for money and a welcome break away from kids clothes that are overly disposable.

But it’s not just about design, we’re also all about quality and comfort. Our tights are made from a luxurious organic cotton which is flexible and soft. Because organic cotton isn’t overly processed it’s super soft but very hard wearing and durable.  Slugs only use yarns and manufacturing processes which have a minimum standard Oeko-Tex®  100 certified as well as GOTS certified yarns, giving you confidence that our products are free of any harmful substances or chemicals,  safeguarding your child’s health and the environment. Slugs & Snails never have and never will, produce in China. We strive to produce in facilities that are highly regulated and audited to make sure production and working practices are safe.
