Why Sustainable Hosiery Deserves a Spot in your Drawer

Sustainability is one of the biggest buzzwords in the fashion industry. While you might be thinking of ditching fast fashion for an eco-friendlier approach, one aspect of our wardrobe is often goes overlooked - our tights.

How often do you buy a pair of tights and use them only once? Do you buy a pair and find a ladder in them after only a few wears? We’re sharing why sustainability matters and our top 5 picks for sustainable tights that you can find on The Tight Spot.

It’s easy to think that eco-friendly tights are classic everyday styles. If you want something fun, flirty, and feminine, we’ve got a pair for you! These crochet tights from Wolford are a transitional style that you can wear every season. Best of all – they’re made using recycled yarns.

 

Why Sustainability Matters

If you want to embrace slow fashion, it’s time to start investing in sustainable and eco-friendly tights. Most of the tights you’ll find on the high street are made using synthetic fibres that will quickly wear and tear.

Most of these tights are destined for landfill after only a few wears. Research suggests that over two billion pairs of tights are disposed of every year. The best way to create a more sustainable fashion industry is to make informed choices and choose eco-friendly tights made using recycled or ethically sourced fabrics.
