Seamed stockings | coffee seamed stockings

While I really love our coffee seamed stockings I don't wear very much brown, so don't tend to wear them very often. When one of my favourite jewellery designers, Splendette, brought out a new brown range a couple of months ago I fell in love with it, so decided to start combining brown with black. I love the way the two colours work together.

 Should you get a run in your stocking in the 1940s or 1950s you'd either repair it with a little stocking mending sewing kit - several were available during this time - or you'd actually take them to be repaired by a seamstress who specialised in just darning stockings!

For a more contemporary look, we've just introduced our champagne glamour seams with a contrasting coffee foot, seam and welt. I admit these were a mistake, the expected shipment of champagne/latte nylons were made incorrectly by the Italian factory who got their shades rather confused! But they actually turned out to be a rather nice surprise.

Should these surprise champagne and coffee seams sell well then we will continue to make them, so please let us know if you do like them.
