Swedish Stockings create modern, luxury tights and socks made from 90-98% recycled yarn.
Most modern tights are made from nylon which is created by an environmentally harmful, petroleum based manufacturing process that is bad for the planet and produces pantyhose that don't last. Each year two billion pairs of tights are produced, worn a few times then discarded into landfills which are full of poorly made, non-biodegradable textiles. This helps make the textile industry one of the most polluting industries in the world.
Linn Frisinger and Nadja Forsberg wanted to tackle this and so Swedish Stockings was born.
Their zero waste factories engage in sustainable practises including the use of environmentally friendly dyes, post-dyeing water purification and the use of solar power for much of the energy needed in the manufacturing process.
They also have a recycling programme which stops products ending up in landfills.
We say - "I love fancy socks and polka dot tights and these are the best I've ever tried. I love how they have made every aspect of production and usage as sustainable as possible and they fit really well too"
