WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS COMING FROM?
We are on a journey to become 100% sustainable. We want to make sure the products we are responsible for making, do minimal harm yet remain an important consumer brand.
In Australia alone we send 7000Kgs of textile waste to landfill every 10 minutes.
Cotton is the most pesticide intensive crop in the World. It is also incredibly intensive on water and land, it takes 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton, thats enough for 1 t-shirt.
We are working hard to produce great technical socks in an affordable and sustainable way. Mass consumerism is over. Time to buy smarter and make smarter.
INNOVATION & DESIGN NEEDS A COMMITMENT
We are working with our factories, designers, prodcuers and partners ensuring every decision is made with the highest regard for the environment and the people we work with.
MEET OUR MAKERS
We have entrusted the production of our socks to a factory in Zhejiang in China. We selected our partners because they make socks, embrace sustainable practices and are making the lives of impoverished children in rural China that bit easier, by committing to donate 1 million pairs of socks to children in need. To date she is responsible for having warmed up 32,500 pairs of feet. We want to help her reach 1 million.
