Made in Italy
I am a European, or more specifically an Italian sock. My exact origins are kept under wraps, but I am allowed to tell you that just outside Milan in northern Italy there is a family business in its second generation of making exceptional socks like me.
As a proud Italian sock I not only look fantastic, I am also made with great attention to detail from top-quality mercerised cotton using state-of-the art machinery.
Shining and refined – Fil d’Ecosse
Shining and refined – Fil d’Ecosse I am made from mercerised cotton. Mercerisation is a finishing process for cotton 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 sole areas to provide additional strengthening.
So why is this also known as Fil d’Ecosse? It’s very simple: the Scot John Mercer invented the process, which is why mercerised cotton is also called Fil d’Ecosse. Scottish roots and a French name – rather difficult for me as an Italian!
I want to be elegant to make sure that you look good. My smooth surface gives me a light, elegant appearance. Together we look unbeatable! We are ready for the next meeting or date, but I will leave that bit to you.
The main thing is that you can count on 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. This is important, since we often forget that socks are worn directly against the skin in a damp and warm climate subjected to friction.
Also striped and in colour
Thanks to my success, I am now available in multiple versions: classic black, anthracite, navy blue and brown. Stripy versions of me have also been launched to better express my particular style.
Don’t think of me as childish socks, I would take that as an insult - as a stripy sock I am nothing but lovely and elegant.
