SUSTAINABLE AND STYLISH: HOSIERY MADE OF RECYCLED YARN
A fashion revolution: As the first label for environmentally friendly tights, Swedish Stockings produces high-quality Skandi styles from recycled nylon.
Every year, two billion pairs of pantyhose are produced, worn a few times and then dumped. Pantyhose has turned into a throw-away product, making the textile industry the second dirtiest industry in the world. Most tights today are made from petroleum-based nylon yarn. The manufacturing process is not only bad for the planet, but also ensures that the pantyhose ends up in the garbage after a short time.

Recycled resources instead of throw-away culture
Since 2013 the Swedes Nadja Forsberg and Linn Frisinger have been fighting this problem. Their label Swedish Stockings produces hosiery according to the zero waste principle: "We use recycled nylon for most of our hosiery. This is 'greener' because instead of using new resources for our products, we use resources that are considered waste. Our recycled nylon comes from waste sources before and after consumption."
The production of recycled yarn is therefore much more environmentally friendly, and the label is constantly looking for new ways to make production even cleaner: Save or reuse water, reduce emissions, reduce and recycle waste. Swedish Stokings' products are produced and dyed in Italy - environmentally friendly and in accordance with EU standards.

The stockings also convince from the fashion point of view: there are classic, opaque tights, exciting fishnet stockings, lace and leopard tights and dot socks. Because: "Nobody wants to buy something that doesn't look nice just because it's sustainable," says Linn Frisinger. We totally agree with her!
