Swedish Stocking's mission is to change and influence the entire hosiery industry. 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. More-so, modern pantyhose isn’t made to last. These harmful practices in the fashion industry are all too common. They believed the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way, and so Swedish Stockings was launched.
They create the pantyhose from both pre and post-consumer nylon waste. The production process is a lot less harmful to the environment than traditional nylon production and they are consistently looking for innovative and cleaner ways to produce - conserving or reusing water, decreasing emissions, reducing and recycling waste. From this highly efficient recycling procedure they have reduced energy and water consumption. Swedish Stockings also have a recycling program where thousands of pairs have already been recycled.
