Philipp Fankhauser's Funky Socks
Philipp Fankhauser has been on the concert stage for thirty years. At first this was always in white socks, then in black. This finally changed in 2012 when Philipp opted for colourful, flashy and funky socks. And so I came into play in 2014: together with BLACKSOCKS, Philipp launched the first models in the ‘Funky Socks’ collection, where I stand as number thirty and have been setting the beat ever since.
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.
Funky Socks are now made with 72% cotton. The new composition guarantees more comfort and softer, more durable socks. The polyamide sock material has been replaced with high-quality mercerised cotton.
Handlinked toe seam
The toe seam has been improved with new technology and new machines. Until now, there was an uncomfortable seam, now you will feel nothing at all. The flat seam guarantees additional comfort and gives you a cosy feeling every day.
100% good for the skin
I am good for you and your skin: This is borne out by the ‘Oeko-Tex® Standard 100’ I am entitled to bear.
This standard guarantees that I am 100% skin-friendly and allergy-tested. Ultimately, I spend all day worn next to your skin in a damp, warm climate, which requires a certain level of care.
