Andrea is knitted in Swedish Stockings zero-waste and emission-free production in Italy.
90% recycled polyamide
The production of Swedish Stockings is powered by solar energy. Swedish Stockings uses recycled and sustainable materials. The water used during production and the dyeing process is then purified and can even be drunk. Nylon yarn, currently used to make state-of-the-art pantyhose, is made from an environmentally harmful petroleum-based manufacturing process that results in harmful carbon emissions. What’s more, modern tights aren’t made to last. These harmful practices are ubiquitous in the fashion industry. We believe the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to pave the way and that’s how Swedish Stockings was born.
Swedish Stockings makes tights from both pre- and post-consumer nylon waste. The production process is much less harmful to the environment than traditional nylon production and there is a constant search for innovative and clean ways to save or reuse water, reduce emissions, reduce waste and recycle. With this highly efficient recycling process, Swedish Stockings has reduced energy and water consumption.
Swedish Stockings uses sustainable methods of production, environmentally friendly dyes, pays attention to the aftertreatment of the water and uses solar energy for a large part of the energy required for the manufacturing process.
