EACH YEAR, TWO BILLION PAIRS OF TIGHTS ARE PRODUCED, WORN ONCE AND THEN DISCARDED.
This is how Linn and Nadja, the two founders of Swedish stockings, starts their story behind their brand. Think about it – two billion (på svenska, två miljarder). The fashion industry creates so much waste, and not being especially eco-conscious to begin with, this is an absolute disaster for the environment.
Thank heaven for brands like Swedish stockings! Their products are made from recycled yarn with environmental friendly dyes and in a production that runs mostly on solar power. Since classic stockings are made from nylon, which is made from the non-renewable source of fossil fuel, the recycling part is so important. Thanks to this process, Swedish stockings are made in completely non-waste factories and without using any water to re-create their products.
These stockings are made to last. And when they don´t, you can send them back and get a discount on your new pair (stockings from any brand are welcome). Deal! I am personally only buying Swedish stockings since last year, and I am so satisfied with their fit and look. Knowing that I am actually doing something good for the earth at the same time just makes it so much better.
Let´s clean up this industry!
