The Origin of SallyGators®

A New Twist to an Old Style Tradition..


“A few years ago, after switching to wearing mostly skirts,

even in the winter time, I thought I’d make me a pair of cloth leg warmers.

I found fabric I liked, including a nice quilted cotton for lining,

made some experimental brown paper patterns,

and the rest is history...

Inspired by Traditional Native American Women’s “Leggins”

SallyGators are fashionable leg warmers for women and men.

Protective, Warm, Leg gaiters to the knee, 

they are a good look with skirts and tights. 

A practical fashion accent for the Fall, Winter and Spring Seasons.


I deeply thank the community of people, ideas and creative support

that has helped bring this project to where 

we can hold them in our hands, or for that matter, 

Pull them on like socks!"
