BEHIND
THE KNIT

Sheertex is a relentlessly inventive and transparent apparel company redefining wearable knit technology because we believe you deserve a wardrobe as unbreakable as you are.

SHEER BEGINNINGS

In 2017 we set out to built an indestructible pair of sheer pantyhose. We called it Sheerly Genius. In building Sheerly Genius we developed the world's first sheer stretch knit to use the world's strongest polymer, we called our knit Sheertex.

In November 2018 Sheerly Genius was names one of TIME Magazines 50 Best in Inventions.

By December 2018, we knew that what we had invented could change a lot more than just pantyhose and we reinvented ourselves as Sheertex the name of our knit technology.

OUR VALUES

RELENTLESSLY PURSUE THE IMPOSSIBLE

When you relentlessly pursue the impossible, good things will happen along the way. When we set out to develop the world’s first pair of unbreakable sheer tights, people said it was impossible. The fiber was too thick for apparel, the fiber was too strong, the fiber was undyeable, the fiber was not knitable, the fiber had never been adopted by the apparel industry. But this didn’t stop us. We are relentlessly innovative in our approach that not only allowed us to develop the world’s first pair of unbreakable sheer tights, but an entirely new knit technology, Sheertex.

OUR VALUES

Speed trumps everything

We pride ourselves on our ability to move quickly. Everything from how we develop new products, to how we design our supply chain has been optimized to solve problems faster and create quick feedback loops with our customers. It lets us innovate at an unprecedented pace.

OUR VALUES

Continuous Improvement

At Sheertex, we're contantly looking to impove and we embrace change. We believe everyone at the company has the ability to identify opportunities and implement change across the entire organization and we are contunously investing in our people, processes and product to make that possible.

After ripping one too many pairs of pantyhose, I wondered why, in a world where cars could drive themselves and phones could pay your bills, there still wasn’t a pair of pantyhose that could make it through the day. So we set out to on a mission. One to create a pair of pantyhose that that was totally life-proof. After 18 months of development we did just that. Not only did we develop a new fiber and a patent pending knit, but we also built our own Canadian manufacturing facility where we produce every Sheertex product.
