Each year, 8 billion pairs of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded. This makes the textile industry the second most polluting industry in the world. Landfills everywhere are full of poorly made and cheap non-biodegradable textiles-and it’s getting worse.
Nylon yarn, which is currently used to produce most modern pantyhose, is created from an environmentally harmful petroleum-based manufacturing process that leads to damaging carbon emissions, more so modern pantyhose isn’t made to 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. We are proud to combine sustainability, quality and great design and hope our customers will feel the same pride in wearing them.
