Who are we?

SRTX (srtxlabs.com) builds new materials and software to enable better textiles. SRTX is best known for its first technology, Sheertex, a knit made from one of the world's strongest polymers which has disrupted hosiery through impossibly strong pantyhose. Named one of TIME’s Best Inventions, our customers get more wears from our tights than average - meaning fewer tights end up in landfills.

Our mission towards achieving sustainability stretches beyond the environment: we are committed to paying our employees an equitable wage and offering an environment that promotes creativity and growth. Our factory and office share our headquarters, allowing constant collaboration and innovation that can be implemented immediately. We encourage our employees to learn quickly, have autonomy, and leave a direct and lasting impact on the company as we strive to become the leading brand in hosiery.
