Every year, 2 billion pairs of pantyhose are manufactured, with most worn a handful of times and disposed in a landfill, where they take decades to decompose.
Sheertex has developed ultra-durable, unbreakable-in-human-hands, rip and snag proof sheer pantyhose using proprietary fiber which incorporates the world’s strongest polymer that is 10X stronger than steel, lightweight, anti-microbial, water-resistant, and cool to the touch. Its first time use in apparel - a significant departure from typical bulletproof vest and climbing equipment applications - has been enabled by the company’s textile technology and proprietary manufacturing process innovations.
Sheertex classic sheer pantyhose can be worn up to 50 times, allowing the transition of this disposable good into a significantly more durable apparel staple.
