Silly Silas was started by mum of two Terezia Prazska, when her mother gave her a pair of traditional tights with braces for her first baby Elias. The tights were originally very popular in 50s and 60s Czechoslovakia, but had since fallen out out fashion. Terry fell instantly in love with how nostalgic, adorable and practical they were, and whilst still on maternity leave set up Silly Silas to share her own baby’s wardrobe essential that is part of her Czech heritage to children and parents who love great design everywhere.
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.
