Our Story

Each year, 8 billion pairs of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded. This makes the textile industry 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, more so modern pantyhose isn’t made to last. These harmful practices in the fashion industry are all too common. Swedish Stockings are proud to combine sustainability, quality and great design with innovative materials and production methods, leading the way to a better planet. For you, for us, for the future.

The used materials are certified with GOTS, GRS and Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX, and are bluesign®-approved.

Swedish Stockings are distributed in Australia by Sustainable Hosiery.

 

Sustainable Hosiery Australia

We are a small family-owned business based in Sydney, Australia with a passion for ethical fashion.

We have searched the globe for the best innovations in ethical fashion and in 2018 we were so excited to discover Swedish Stockings Conscious Pantyhose!

For us, ethical fashion means treating people and the environment with respect without compromising on quality or style and Swedish Stockings embraces these values in everything they do.
​We are proud to be the very first to bring a hosiery label that is Fair-trade, recycled (and recyclable), zero-waste, zero-emissions and OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified to the Australian market!
 
Why Hosiery?
Well, apart from being major tights aficionados, we are big fans of the sustainable and versatile wardrobe - that is a capsule collection of classic pieces that you can wear in many different ways, season after season. Hosiery is the perfect accessory for extending the possibilities of your existing wardrobe and adding trans-seasonability to your favourite items. Hosiery is at once a practical wardrobe staple and a statement piece that adds flair to any outfit.

Despite its versatility, hosiery has a pretty bad reputation as a highly polluting, throw-away item of clothing, which is what makes Swedish Stockings so unique. Swedish Stockings are produced in zero-emissions and zero-waste factories from recycled nylon yarn and they are made to last!

At Sustainable Hosiery, it is our vision to expand our offering to include other sustainable wardrobe basics to help you build your own brand of conscious style.
