History

The story of Skinija began in 1996 in a newly re-born Lithuania. Named after a stream, its products flowed into Lithuanian homes and paved its way into a wider world. Having started production with few socks, we now boast with a range of several thousand socks and tights. We achieved this thanks to our team, many of which have been working with us for over 20 years. Therefore, we can say - we really know our socks.

We are proud of our wide product range from extremely thick, functional and warm socks to thin and stylish. Armies of various countries, outdoor and fashion brands relies on Skinija products and their quality. As a brand we design with passion using high quality yarn and innovative technologies to make our products comfortable, durable, functional and stylish. We do not just design socks, we make them!

Although most of Skinija products are sold abroad, we remain the leaders of socks and tights production in Lithuania. Skinija brand products are sold in almost 1000 outlets, and you can buy the widest range of our collection in SKINIJA BOUTIQUE stores located in major Lithuanian cities.
