Shining and refined – Fil d’Ecosse
I am made from mercerised cotton. Mercerisation is a cotton processing procedure which gives me a silky, wash-resistant shine and also makes me stronger. Mercerised cotton is also more colourfast and creates very little lint. Polyamide in the form of Lycra® is found in my toe and heel areas to provide additional strengthening.
So why is mercerised cotton also known as Fil d’Ecosse? It’s very simple: the Scot John Mercer invented the mercerisation process. This is why mercerised cotton is also called Fil d’Ecosse. A Scot in French – rather difficult for me as an Italian!
Totally smooth and unribbed
I owe my beauty not just to my high-quality materials, but also to my workmanship. My smooth surface makes me light and elegant, ensuring that I am an excellent companion for important meetings or your next wedding party. With me, you can dance the night away.
Due to my lack of ribbing I look great, even stunning, in any shoe.
Made in Italy
I come from a small sock manufacturer in northeast Milan, which makes me Italian. They create high-quality socks such as me with a great passion for detail. Three siblings are running the business in second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.
100% skin-friendly & allergy-tested
I am good for you, your feet and your skin: I have been tested and I meet the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100.
This standard says that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. We often forget that socks are worn directly against the skin, in a damp and warm climate subjected to friction.
