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 stockings, Swedish Stockings creates beautiful pantyhose from recycled yarn and natural fibres. Our factories en gage in sustainable practises including the use of environmentally friendly dyes, post-dyeing water treatment and the use of solar power for much of the energy needed in the manufacturing process.
We are proud to combine sustainability, quality and great design and hope our customers will feel the same pride in wearing them. Each year, two 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, not only are these products bad for the planet, they also don’t last, and then end in landfills where the don’t degrade. These practises in the fashion industry are all too common.
We want to be the forerunner in changing and influencing the entire industry towards better practices and products.
Four years ago, Swedish Stockings was launched with the ambition to change and influence the entire hosiery industry. We want to inject new life into pantyhose and bring back that feeling of luxury from the past. In January 2016, Swedish Stocking won the prestigious Elle-award ‘Eye-catch of the year’ and in May 2015 Swedish Stockings was pin pointed as Swedens third most influential start-up by Swedens biggest business paper ‘Dagens industri’. With a true passion for quality and design, combined with an honest concern about the environment, we are aiming at becoming one of the world’s leading hosiery brands.
