Eco-friendly stockings from Sweden: Swedish Stockings!

The beautiful Nadja and Linn from Sweden are on a mission! Eco friendly stockings, why not! Made of recycled yarn, but Nadja and Linn want to take it a step further...looking at the production, the dyeing and energy use of the factory. And the stockings are super comfortable, durable and in beautiful deep colors and patterns!

Their story...:

"Each year, two billion pairs of tights are produced, worn once and then discarded, helping to make 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 and not only are they bad for the planet, they don’t last. These harmful practices in the fashion industry are all too common.

We believe 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. Our 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.

We are proud to combine sustainability, quality and great design and hope our customers will feel the same pride in wearing them."

A pearl is something you can't and shouldn't resist this Summer! They're such elegant pieces to give that extra shine to your Summer outfit. A subtle but catchy shine. We love it. And so did two of our favorite Danish Jewelry designers.

Brew your own beer...

We just read that the local breweries are getting more popular! Well, we've found you the real local brewery: the Beer Foamer! 

Designed by NORM Copenhagen for Menu Denmark. And what a pratical beauty it is. The design is inspired by the original shape of the Beer brewer kettle. Awesome! A copper brewery with a battery driven foamer! It enhances the aroma, the taste and the feel. How super clever. 

This Beer Foamer is excellent to add to your wine & dine collection. And what about giving this gadget as a present...like for Father's Day...??

These funky rain boots are designed by the Swedish Finnish shoe designer Julia Lundsten and made by the traditional Finnish rubber boot brand Nokian. A great high-quality fashion statement. At the festival, you'll be ultimately prepared for all weather types...and, more importantly, you'll look awesome!

Julia Lundsten is based in London and runs the high end shoe label FINSK shoes. She won the Manolo Blahnik award and her shoes are worn by Lady Gaga and Rihanna. By working together with the traditional Finnish rubber boot makers (who have done so for over a century) she is able to combine her progressive shoe design with true craftsmanship! And the result is a practical, fun and very trendy boot that withstands all kinds of weather...let's go outside!
