How is quality made?

 

A series of top marks

 

Made in Italy

   
The Maître Chaussettier makes sure that our socks are of impeccable quality and does not rest until he is satisfied with the results.   In independent tests, our best-selling traditional calf sock has been among the best socks in Switzerland for years. The other styles have not yet been tested.   BLACKSOCKS is proud of the fact that all its products are made in Europe. The majority of our socks are produced in a factory in Northern Italy.

When do your socks start to fade?

 

 

We reveal the truth

 

 

The history of socks

   
Faded flowers end up in the compost. Sour milk goes down the drain. And old socks? They normally end up back on our feet. Put them on or chuck them out?   Who changes their socks only every couple of days? Who owns the most socks? And who prefers to leave it to mummy to buy socks? BLACKSOCKS knows the answers.   From the Middle Ages to the Internet Age - the sockscription frees mankind from sock stress!

Sock survival tips

   
In order to be able to check our production batches, we have incorporated a systematic 'weave fault' into the heel of our socks. This is a kind of 'barcode' which provides information on the year the socks were made.   The price of socks has remained the same for twelve years. The classic sockscription still costs just 98 francs, the same as it did in 1999.   To make sure you enjoy a long and pleasurable sock experience we have collated our five vital sock survival tips.
