Certifications and memberships:
Swedish Stockings is a tights and hosiery brand on a mission. They want to influence the entire industry towards sustainable production. And they mean sustainable in every way. The women owned brand was founded in 2013 by Linn Frisinger and Nadja Forsberg. Swedish Stockings’ factory is located in Italy, where recycled yarn is turned into gorgeous pairs of tights, by people who earn living wages. Their facility runs on renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power. And half of the water used in the production is re-used, while the other half is purified.
But Swedish Stockings dares to dream even bigger. They want to become the world’s first circular hosiery brand. A lot of time and energy goes into finding a way to separate the elastane from the polyamide fibers. Sending in your old hosiery to their Recycling Club helps them achieve this goal. Until they fulfill this mission however, they recycle pairs of tights in other ways. And that’s not all. We happen to know that their tights are amazing quality too. Are you ready for your new favorite go-to brand for vegan, fair and sustainable tights?
