INNOVATIONS BY SWEDISH STOCKINGS
From Tights to Tables
FROM TIGHTS TO TABLES
Innovations is our promise to ourselves, the industry and our customers that we will continue to push the boundaries of innovation in hosiery no matter what, either through product or concept.
We wanted to know if there is a second life for your old tights.
Combining this question, with our recycling program, we set out to search for an answer. We are proud to announce a limited edition collection of furniture made from our customer's old tights, in collaboration with furniture designer Gustaf Westman. Our tables (depending on their size) contain between 80 and 350 pairs of tights that have been diverted from landfills through our recycling program.

"The most important thing was to emphasize the material in the tables. I wanted to keep the design simple and the round shapes give the material full focus from all angles. By only making tables in cylinders stacked on top of each other, the entire collection is unified and easy to understand. The tables can be used individually or in a cluster."
- Gustaf Westman, Designer
How it's made
Each table is manufactured by hand, at our warehouse in Köping, Sweden. The process is similar to that of creating the fibreglass tanks (read more here), except the sanding and finishing is done entirely by hand. These tables create an impact in a room, mimicking stones and marble, and, best of all, are a symbol for taking responsibility for our world's limited resources.
