We believe the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way and so Swedish Stocking was launched. A forerunner in sustainably produced nylon stockings, Swedish Stockings produce beautiful pantyhose from recycled yarn. Our factories engage in sustainable practices 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 thights 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 and not only are bad for the planet, they don’t last. These harmful practices in the fashion industry are all too common.
