From socks to sneaker socks - the origin of socks

Production plant

The lion's share of our socks (calf socks, knee socks, “Business Light” socks, Cashmere Silk socks, Classic Merino Wool socks) is produced in a factory near Milan in Northern Italy. The second-generation family business ranks amongst today's most highly regarded sock makers. Since our first contact with the manufacturer in 1998, a symbiotic relationship has developed which has led to outstanding quality socks.

Made in Europe

Our Urban Comfort socks with a terry sole made of fair-trade organic cotton are made not in Italy, but in Germany. Finally, our shorties or sneaker socks are made in Turkey.

The workmanship

We only use quality yarns which have been certified by Oeko-Tex. This guarantees 100% skin-friendliness. The socks are knitted in one piece, sewn together at the upper end of the toe area and ironed

Continuous quality control

12 to 18 pairs of trial socks are made from each batch of yarn. A coloured thread is woven in to mark them. The remaining yarn is stored until the trial socks have been thoroughly tested.

The test is very simple: the production manager wears the socks himself for approximately 20 wash cycles. The socks tested in this way are then compared to other socks from earlier trials. Only when the colour, fabric and fit are absolutely perfect the yarn can be used for production.

This allows us to guarantee that the socks remain at the same high standard of quality over time.

As well as the close-to-reality sock-wearing tests, we also carry out various tests in the lab with the same objective - offering consistently high quality. For our Cashmere Silk Socks, we even carry out DNA analyses on order to ensure that the cashmere we are buying is genuinely cashmere.
