OUR PRODUCTION IS SOLAR POWERED
WATER USED IN THE PRODUCTION PROCESS IS PURIFIED BEFORE IT GOES BACK INTO THE GROUND
OUR YARN IS 90 - 98% RECYCLED WASTE
OUR FACTORIES ARE "ZERO WASTE"
Our mission is to change and influence the entire hosiery industry. Pantyhose is a petroleum product and one of our biggest consumables. The industry is huge and the production itself uses non-renewable fossil fuels and require a huge amount of energy and water. This process is in itself very harmful to the environment, but most pantyhose are also designed to be worn only once and then replaced, and so further contributing to textile pollution - one of the third most polluting industry in the world (together with oil and agriculture).
Swedish Stockings is created from the by-product of other nylon products that is non-biodegradable. The production process is a lot less harmful to the enviroment than traditional nylon production and we are consistently looking for innovative and cleaner ways to produce - conserving or reusing water, decreasing emissions, reducing and recycling waste. From this highly efficient recycling procedure we have reduced energy and water consumption by:
- 87.6% less energy
- A savings of water 18.M3/ton yarn
- A large part of our production is solar powered
- No extra water is used to create our stockings
- Our factories are "zero waste"
- All water used in dyeing is purified and treated
- Thousands of stockings have been recycled thanks to our recycling program
