History of Hosiery Timeline

History of Hosiery Timeline

While thigh highs are a fairly modern invention, the history of hosiery is one that goes way back. As early as the 1500s, stockings were worn to protect legs. Luckily, as time passed, hosiery became associated with fashion as well as function.

At VienneMilano, we love making stockings that stay up thus allowing you to move freely while still looking fashionable. Our passion for creating luxury hosiery pushed us to look into the history of our industry to gain a better appreciation for how far we have come.

Our History of Hosiery Timeline provides a condensed history of the hose industry up until the creation of VienneMilano. We hope this helps you appreciate luxury hosiery as much as we do!
