We care


To us, our tights are our babies, along with the two ones walking around our home. We treat our clothes with love from the first cotton yarn thread all the way to delivery. 

We believe that care and safe keeping is essential. Down to the production and environmental impact of our products. 

Our tights are manufactured in a traditional, small production in the heart of Europe, Czech Republic. This expertise is often formed over the lifetime of the employees there. 

Similar productions are vanishing and the beautiful craft is rare. In our view, it's vital to keep this precious tradition. No matter the cost. 

A simple product like a pair of children’s tights takes 8 operations to manufacture. They are made with a vintage, traditional technology in order to be 100% cotton, and free from added elastane. The knitting time is lengthy but we think it's oh so worth it to get the softest texture possible. Each pair is carefully checked and after the last stitch is sewn then placed on a little heated baby leg form. Finally, they are folded and safely packed into our mini packaging.

We feel that consumers are often disconnected from the process of how the products are made nowadays and we want to keep you included. If you have any questions ever, please do not hesitate to contact us at hello@sillysilas.com. 

 

We certify our products by OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 at the Class 1 level, the most rigorous certification designed specifically for newborns through toddlers up to the age of three. In addition to testing for harmful chemicals at the strictest limit values, the test and verification methods also focus on pronounced resistance to saliva as an additional requirement for the Class 1 certification.

Additionally, our products are tested according to ASTM D1230-17 complying with specific textile flammability regulation required in Sweden (Konsumentverket, Brandrisk i kläder), Netherlands (Handhavingsafspraken brandveiligheid kleding conform de Warenwet 2008) and Norway (Forskrift om forbud mot svært brennbare tekstiler) and Flammability requirement in Canada (CAN/CGSB-4.2 NO 27.5:2008) and USA (US CPSC 16 CFR PART 1610).

Important:

It is important that your little one always wears the tights with braces in the correct way (as shown in all our pictures) - with one brace securely placed on the left shoulder and the other brace on the right shoulder in order to avoid abrasions.

The braces are helping the little adventurers to freely move while playing and exploring the world and should be always used in the correct position.

This is not a sleepwear product, remember to not leave your child unattended when wearing tights with braces.
