Founded on the belief that the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way, Swedish Stockings has become a forerunner in sustainably produced nylon stockings by using recycled yarn. Their factories engage in sustainable practices including the use of environmentally friendly dyes, post-dyeing water treatment and the use of solar power for much of the energy needed in the manufacturing process.
Swedish Stockings proudly combines sustainability, quality and great design. Each year, two billion pairs of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded. This contributes to the textile industry being the second most polluting industry in the world. Landfills everywhere are full of poorly made and cheap non-biodegradable textiles, and it's getting worse. 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 and not only are they bad for the planet, they don't last. These harmful practices are all too common in the fashion industry, and Swedish Stockings is doing their part to change this!
Here at Supernatural, we are 100% in support of this mission and work hard to curate brands that are committed to creating quality products that will last for years, as well as those who are engaging in sustainable production and going the extra step to use materials that don't harm or reduce harm on the environment.
