REINVENTING TRADITIONAL SOCKS

The project

Socks are an everyday product that usually don’t receive much attention from consumers or the companies who produce them. They are something that we have been conditioned into buying as throwaway items. They are an afterthought, yet we use them almost every day. Our aim is to update the simple item of socks by creating a sustainable, ethical and beautifully crafted product.
