Each year, two billion pairs of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded, helping to make the textile industry the second most polluting industri in the world. Landfills everywhere are full of poorly made and cheap non.biogradable textiles, and it's getting worse.
Nylon yarn, which is currently used to produce most medern pantyhose, is created from an environmental harmful petroleum-based manufactoring process that leads to damagingcarbon emissions and not only are they bad for the planet, they don't last.
These harmful practices in the fashion industry are all too common. We believe the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way, and so Swedish Stockings was launched.
A forerunner in sustainably produced nylon stockings, Swedish Stockings produce beautiful pantyhose from recycled yarn. Our factories engage in sustanainable practises including the use of environmentally freindly dyes, post-dyeing water treatment and the use of solar power for much of the energy needed in the manufacturing process.
