Brand: Swedish Stockings
Swedish Stockings is a pantihose brand that was fed up with the damage the fashion industry is doing to the environment. That is why they make beautiful sustainable tights made from recycled yarn.
Ethically produced: The collections are made in Italy, close to Lake Garda. Swedish Stockings visits this location twice a year on average. The factory has the SA8000 certificate. SA8000 has strict conditions when it comes to fair production: from clean and pleasant working conditions to paying a living wage.
Eco-friendly: The tights are made from innovative recycled yarn materials, such as ECONYL®, Q-Nova® and Nilit EcoCare®. Swedish Stockings' factories operate as sustainably as possible and use environmentally friendly inks, clean their wastewater, and use solar energy as much as possible. Nice to know: if you send tights back to Swedish Stockings, they will recycle them for you. Unfortunately not to new tights, because that is not yet possible with the available technology, but to something else fun: Lego! If you send them your tights you will also get a discount on your next purchase.
Locally produced: Swedish Stockings produces in Italy, within Europe. They try to travel by train as much as possible when visiting.
Good cause: Swedish Stockings supports various charities, mainly focused on women's rights. For example the Swedish 'kvinna till kvinna foundation' and 'läkarmissionen'
