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 the second generation ensuring that lots of socks turn out as good as me.

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!

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.

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.

In November 1998, the future founders of BLACKSOCKS were seeking the perfect socks. My Italian manufacturer fielded me as a candidate. The selection process was not easy, but I won. Since then, our careers have been intertwined. As in any career, I am continuing to develop, but at heart I have remained the same: an honest sock for every day.

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.
