Katherine Homuth, founder of Sheertex, was fed up with old-fashioned, disposable hosiery, so she set out to make the toughest, luckiest tights in the world. 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. Using one of the world’s strongest polymers, the Sheertex knit is made with a miniaturized version of fibers traditionally found in climbing and sailing equipment.
