Good morning everyone, today’s post is on hosiery and sustainable ones at that from Swedish Stockings. Like I have perviously mentioned I am trying to be sustainable and conscious about products that I am purchasing nowadays. That doesn’t mean that I have stopped buying non sustainable items. I am trying as much as possible and it will take time until all brands decide to go down the sustainable route. Well this is a start for me and again I want to shed some light on this brand.
Take a scroll down to have a little browse at some of the tights and stocking that I am loving and let me know which is your favourite!
DID YOU KNOW
So each year, two billion pair of tights are produced, they are then worn maybe a few time and then get thrown away. Helping to make the textile industry the second most polluting industry in the world. You will find that landfills are full of poorly made and cheap non-biodegradable textiles. Nylon yarn, which is currently used to produce most modern pantyhose, is created from an environmentally harmful petroleum-based manufacturing process that is not only harmful for the planet but also make pantyhose that do not last.
Here is a little back story to the brand, Swedish Stockings believe the need for more innovative and environmentally conscious products to lead the way, so they launched this brand. They are a forerunner in sustainably produced nylon stockings, producing beautiful pantyhose from recycled yarn. Their factories engage in sustainable practises including the use of environmentally friendly dyes, and the use of solar powers for much of the energy needed in the manufacturing process.
JOSEFIN DROP TIGHTS
Right the tights that I am wearing are the Josefin drop tights in the colour Ivory. They are made from high quality recycled yarn and designed with a beautiful drop pattern. The tights come in a 20 denier, are sheer with a broad waistband. Here I have opted to style Josefin with my white oversized RTA Brand blazer. They would also work equally well with a faux leather mini skirt too. My shoe of choice are these gorgeous Liana pair which have been inspired by the 1920’s from Maria Peron. They come in a contrasting black and white t- bar. As for my white oval sunglasses they are Vintage, and I absolutely adore them. Finally completing my look I wore a pop of red lipstick from M.A.C. in the shade Feels So Grand.
