About Silly Silas

Silly Silas captures the laughter of children playing outside on the streets of former Czechoslovakia and is reminiscent of that homely remembrance of comfort and durability, brought up to date with the beautiful and ingenious design today’s kids and parents will love.

Traditionally produced in Czech Republic by artisans who cherish their profession for decades, supporting the local craft that is slowly and sadly vanishing. This fusion of traditions, ingenious practical design and contemporary cool was the energy that brought the Silly Silas clothing brand into being.

 

About me

I am a mom of 2 boys that make my every day a magic! When my first son Elias was born, my mom gave me a pair of traditional tights with braces. I fell instantly in love with how nostalgic, adorable and practical they were, it was a love at first sight. I learnt from my parents that they used to be very popular when they were kids in 50-60s in former Czechoslovakia but then they already went out of style when I was a baby.  I felt it was such a pity that this ingenious clothing item from the past was not worn by more kids around the world and dreamt to change it.

Appreciating that sometimes some traditional solutions stand the test of time, I embarked on a journey of bringing new innovative versions of such a traditional product as tights used to be while keeping the comfort in the utmost focus. 

Now living in Sweden, I want to bring my own baby’s wardrobe essential that is part of my own Czech heritage to children and parents who love great design everywhere. My dream is that Silly Silas will be a loved brand of other babies and toddlers as well as their loving parents.

Hugs, Terry
