We didn't know that each year two billion pair of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded. Less did we know that Nylon yarn, which is currently used to produce most modern pantyhose, is created from an enviromentally harmful petroleum-based manufacturing process that leads to carbon emission that is not only bad for our planet, they don't last.
The founders of Swedish Stockings believe that the world needs more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way, and so Swedish Stockings was launched. A forerunner in sustainably produced nylon stockings, Swedish Stockings produce beautiful pantyhose from recycled yarn. Their factories engage in sustainable practises 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 won this year's Elle Award and they have been publicized in magazines like Vouge, Harpers Bazaar, Monocle, New York Observer and the Guardian.
We think that all women need a pair of eco-friendly pantyhose for Christmas and we know where to find them. Welcome to Pjoki, Swedish Stockings! We are so honored to have your amazing products in store.
