"Everyone said unbreakable tights would be impossible, but we knew we could make our own luck."

How We Got to Guaranteed Good Luck

Tights were trash, until now

Humans have walked on the moon—so why did tights still break at the first sign of bad luck? Founder Katherine Homuth was fed up with old-fashioned, disposable hosiery, so she set out to make the toughest, luckiest tights in the world.

It took sheer grit and the toughest materials, but we did the impossible

With a lot of hard work and innovation, Katherine and her team created a miracle fiber, a proprietary manufacturing process, and took over the largest hosiery factory in Montreal, Canada, where the entire team is based today.

We wound up with the strongest knit in the world, and our luck is just beginning

Our Sheertex knit is the foundation of all of our products, and we’re finding more and more ways to create stylish, ultra-durable uses for it.

“Believe the impossible. We did, and that's how we got here. Count on us for products engineered for better odds.”

Katherine Homuth, Founder & CEO

Sustainability is woven through our entire business

01

Durability

Throwing away disposable tights, for good

Over 2 billion pairs of pantyhose are thrown away each year. Tights shouldn’t be trash, so we’re replacing them with a strong and long-lasting knit that can be reworn, again and again.

Second Chances

Meet Our Second Chances Collection

We use the extra material from our production process to make new products like masks, headbands, scrunchies, and underwear. This collection is still growing—so stay tuned for more upcycled products to come.

Cost of Materials

Our fiber is the first of its kind, traditionally used in bulletproof vests and ballistic materials, so it’s actually more valuable pound for pound than silver. Our prices reflect the cost of our materials directly — no scams or crazy markups.

Our Hard-Earned Luck Has Everyone Talking

Gizmodo

“You can stretch and twist the Sheertex as much as you like and they won't break. You'd have to be the Hulk to tear a hole through these things.”

Named One of TIME's Best Inventions

Bustle

“These super pantyhose have been tested and proven to be wearable up to 50 times. Regular brands usually give you two or three wears before you are forced to toss 'em.”
