Announcement   All items in stock are ready to ship same or next day from UK - SPECIAL OFFER - Save $5 when you buy any two pairs of tights! (Refunded upon payment, two pairs of tights or leggings only, not socks or t-shirts.)

- Custom orders - If an item you'd like isn't in stock I can try and make it for you, please note that it takes a month on average to get stock in and print it.

SIZES - Small/Medium - US 2-10/UK 6-14, Medium/Tall - US 10-14/UK 14-18, Large - US 16-22/UK 20-26, Extra Large - US 24-28/UK 28-32. Please be aware that not all colours are available in all sizes but I will try my best to find an alternative on request. At this time I am unable to print custom designs.

Screen-printing tights by hand enables me to print each size with a different amount of stretch to the print, minimising distortion when worn. Because of this each tights leg must be printed and allowed to dry separately so it's a time consuming process but being able to offer a wide range of sizes makes this worthwhile for me.

I use water-based inks which are environmentally friendly and no products derived from animals. Many customers say that their tights last for years, gentle hand washing and drying can help achieve this.

*Washing Guide*

The best way to wash the tights is to turn them inside out, you can use hand-washing detergent but some shower gel or shampoo works fine too. Put them in a sink with warm water and the detergent and gently squeeze the tights so they absorb the water and the dirt comes out, then rinse them in clean water until the detergent is washed out. Then gently squeeze the water out and hang them to dry. If you really need to they can be put in a washing machine on a delicate cycle (in a garment bag to protect them), it's better to hand wash them though as you can't guarantee how the machine will treat them and hand washing is gentler so will keep them in better condition. Tumble drying is not recommended for tights as the heat damages the elastic.

Love them! Not too thin. Not too thick. And they survived a bachelorette party. But the waist really wants to slide down. Like can’t make it out the door without a saggy bottom.

About

Hand Printed Tights, Clothing and Stationary

Hello! I'm Teja Jamilla, I've been screen printing tights since 2008. I started by making some for my degree show's fundraiser, they were Elizabethan inspired with geese, insects and pumpkins. They sold out by lunch time and I've been making clothes with my historical reimaginings ever since.

I print with environmentally-friendly metallic and opaque inks onto high quality, durable Italian-made tights from child size to plus size.

I want to make tights for everyone so if you see a style that isn't in your size just message me and I'll see what I can do!

Then gently squeeze the water out and hang them to dry. If you really need to they can be put in a washing machine on a delicate cycle so long as you don't tumble dry them, it's better to hand wash them though as you can't guarantee how the machine will treat them and hand washing is gentler so will keep them in better condition and it only takes several minutes anyway.
