We are proud that each pair of our socks is produced in Europe.
We're a local company valuing quality. The whole production process is subject to EU regulations which confirms the high quality of our socks. Our Rainbow Socks are healthy and safe for all skin types, even those prone to allergies.
The local production of socks allows us to visit the production facility regularly. Thanks to this, we know exactly what the production process looks like. We pay special attention to safe work conditions.
We personally know the people who turn our designs into socks. They are an important part of our team. We appreciate and respect their everyday work.
Production and distribution located in Europe is good for us, but also for the environment. Due to the proximity of all chain elements, our socks generate a lower carbon footprint than most textile products on the market.
What is a carbon footprint?
A carbon footprint is the sum of greenhouse gases emitted directly or indirectly by a product, including its production and distribution.
Our socks go from the production line to a package which is sent directly to the customer. As a result, we emit as much as 226 kg of carbon dioxide less per pallet of products compared to products exported from Asia. Only this single saving due to the distance between the point of production and point of distribution is equal to the annual carbon footprint of six people!
By focusing on European production, we care about the world, while not giving up the smile that our socks bring to the faces of people around the world, the same people that benefit from free delivery when ordering our products.
