About Skinny Sams
Skinny Sams is the brainchild of mother Alison Baumal, who became aware of a gap in the market whilst talking and listening to other mothers at the school gates and at children's parties. Alison comments "I realised that tights were invariably described as a frequent ‘must purchase’ for all types of needs and occasions. In addition they were often required at short notice for a specific outfit or special event, yet unlike many other items of clothing, they did not seem to be readily available online".
Skinny Sams was born, the inspiration for the Company name coming from Alison’s own child, Sam!
Every item in the range, which comprises over 100 lines, has been designed in Italy and conforms to UK children’s sizing. Whilst developing the range, we were mindful of health and safety and all products have been tested in laboratories in the UK and avoid any chemicals under scrutiny from the European Union. We are aware of environmental issues and endeavor to use the minimum amount of packaging. All tights are top quality, made of known and tested materials such as Lycra or cotton and feature a reinforced toe.
The beautiful, Italian designed range, covers everything a girl needs — including cute and cosy tights for babies and toddlers to cool and trendy footless tights for the older girl + a few for Mum as well. There are over 100 styles and 45 colours to choose from. With prices from £3.00, the attraction of year-round availability and dispatch usually within 24 hours.
In November 2006 Skinny Sams were proud to announce their alliance with Over The Wall www.otw.org.uk a charity providing residential camps for children and young people affected by cancer and other serious illnesses. Skinny Sams have pledged to give a percentage of the profits from the Website to the charity.
