In a world of fast fashion and environmental degradation, we are trying to do things with as much respect for people, and the planet, as possible.

Our socks utilise multi-decade Italian knitting techniques. We use high needle count, quality cotton and reinforce the toe and heel so that each sock lasts as long possible. 

We only work with small, family-run factories, where workers are paid, and treated, well. We know all the workers by name… which somehow matters to us. Our communications with the factories are constant and we aim to do a site visit every 6 months. 

And we only produce in small batches (to prevent waste) with gold-standard GOTS certified cotton.

There shall be no recruitment of child labour. Children under the age of 15 shall not be recruited or employed (or higher age if required by the law). Children and young persons under the age of 18 shall not be employed at night or in hazardous conditions.

4. Wages and benefits of employment

Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week must meet, as a minimum, national legal requirements, or industry benchmark standards, whichever is higher. Wages should cover the need to meet both basic needs and some discretionary income. All workers should be provided with written and understandable information about their employment conditions and wages before employment and provided with wage slips for each period they are paid. Deductions from wages as a disciplinary measure is not permitted, except those required by law. Any such deductions must not be taken without the expressed permission of the worker concerned.


5. Hours of work and regular employment

Accurate attendance, payroll and production records shall be maintained. Suppliers must commit to working towards compliance with ILO guidelines and national laws, whichever offers greatest protection. Overtime must be voluntary, and all employees should receive at least one rest day in every seven. Overtime should be paid at a premium rate. The conditions for the termination of a contract should be laid out before employment commences and conform to established and transparent company practices and local law.


6. Discipline

Employee abuse in physical, sexual or verbal form of intimidation is not acceptable and prohibited.


7. Health and safety

A safe, clean and hygienic environment should be provided, taking into account the specific hazards of the industry. Adequate steps should be taken to prevent accidents and injury to health at work. Workers should receive regular and recorded health and safety training. All workers should have access to clean toilet facilities and drinking water. Where provided accommodation should be clean, safe, and meet the basic needs of workers. 


8. Anti-Slavery and Trafficking

We are committed to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
