On Nov.9th Annette was invited to represent us at the first "Women for women" talks, started by a group of friends at Nordic Choice Hotel's HQ. An evening dedicated to women supporting women, sharing stories of both struggles and success.
Annette shared her story of having worked 25 years within HM, buying and production, to us starting Legnology and SootSTHLM together.
The good and bad of starting a new hosiery brand with a sustainable philosophy, in a market overflowing
For the second year in a row, Annette's been helping out to set the stage at the Children's climate prize award, in Södertälje, Sweden.
She always calls, teary eyed, raving about these amazing young entrepreneurs who are dedicating their lives to saving our planet.
With a youth like this, there's hope!!
The Children's Climate Prize is an international climate prize awarded to a youth, 10-17 year old, who has done something extraordinary for the climate and environment. T

Guys, I was cursed since birth with chronic dry hands and it's awful most of the time, I probably don't even have to tell you that, and you who suffer the same fate..you feel me. However many years ago I realized what a useful tool dry hands can be.
It's like a quality testing tool, no joke! And almost foolproof!
Polyester in various blends tend to get stuck on dry fingers, the cheaper the blend the more it gets stuck. I mean most of the time you can tel
(following post includes bragging rights, please be advised) Don't you just love shopping for pantyhose!? Makes you feel really good about yourself, because you know you're gonna come home and put those suckers on and instantly turn in to a feisty little sex kitten, crawling around your apartment on all four. (Insert licking lips) I mean who is the customer? We should all be insulted, this is "our" product, it's made for us women and this is what we pay for. We pay for this p
Did you know that the hosiery business is male dominated? True story.
Which doesn't have to be bad, but men in general don't wear pantyhose and it's sometimes hard to describe a feeling.
And maybe thats why we've had the same issues with hosiery since they first got on the market in the 1940's and why we so often encounter women who say they hate pantyhose, because "their bodies are not made for tights"..
Say what?! Let's reprogram that and understand that pantyhose are k
My mom collects Singer and Husqvarna machines, the real old school ones in iron. Each of them weighs a ton and can probably sew through asphalt if you tried. This is how I grew up. Hanging with my mom at her many sewing classes she held at the community centers or at home in the kitchen in Stockholm. Hours on hours long classes in the evenings, every week and always fully booked with women who wanted to learn how to mend, hem and sew. It's one of those things I cherish! My mo
(Originally posted March 15th 2013) I think most of us can agree on that we've always bought pantyhose with the expectation that they’ll break, sooner or later and they don’t even have to actually tear to be un-wearable. Pilling, rugged fibers and loose elastane fibers giving that unsightly sagging look are other problems caused by daily wear. Whether you are a budget shopper or don't mind to pay a little extra for your products, lets make it clear that the "unbreakable panty
Ladies and gents! As you might have noticed we took quite the sleeping beauty like rest from the blog due to moving our website, but we're now back and ready to talk like never before.
I figured that traveling back in time to revisit our first blog post that we published in Nov. of 2012 would be a good start.
The tights school, part one. Trying to find your way through the jungle of tights out there on the market can be both confusing and overwhelming.
Even though you migh
