Comfortable cotton socks
Bold cotton socks with a smart button system
You may very well relate to this scenario: clothes needing to be washed, once washed, they must be hung up to dry. Socks scattered all over the place and the task of matching is not only a tedious one but a hopeless one also. Never mind - it can wait until they are dry. Unfortunately, waiting for the socks to dry doesn’t make the task of finding their sock mates easier. And what about the socks that may not have a mate at all?
Studies show that on average, we lose 1.3 socks per month. Fortunately, this does not happen when you have SockiSocki cotton socks. Our socks have a smart, integrated button system, which allows you to quickly and effortlessly attach your socks together before washing - that way they stay paired together, and can easily be sorted after drying. Easy and quick.
The push buttons are located on the rib of the sock and are not visible when wearing the socks..

Our 3 classic cotton socks and some of the colours of the buttons.
Cotton has customarily been used to produce socks, as it is a soft, breathable, natural material. Combed cotton is also softer and more durable than regular cotton. The more cotton there is in socks, the softer they are. The polyamide ensures durability and contributes to giving the sock that elastic feel when putting it on and taking it off. Polyamide also makes the socks less likely to wrinkle. Elastane gives sock their elasticity and makes it possible to stretch the sock without tearing it.

Facts about cotton.
Cotton has been used for over 3000 years, but it was only after World War II that people began to use chemicals in cotton.
Today, cotton is used in over 40% of all textiles
The cotton plant is grown on approx. 5% of the world's agricultural land
The cotton plant is a shrub that grows in tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including America, Africa, Egypt and India.
The greatest diversity of wild cotton species is found in Mexico, followed by Australia and Africa.
About 25 million tons of cotton are produced annually (which can amount to many pairs of cotton socks in a single year).
India is the world largest producer of cotton.
In 2019, China sent a cotton seed to the moon aboard Chang 4, which landed on the far side of the moon. The seed is still aboard Chang4 and according to the Chinese space agency, the cotton seed is sprouting which makes the cotton plant the first plant in space.
The first socks were made around the twelfth century. At that time, silk, wool and cotton socks were made by hand.
The first great revolution in socks came in 1589, when the process of producing socks by machine was introduced thereby increasing the speed and production of socks. Socks were produced 6 times faster than normal.
The next big revolution came in 2019 when SockiSocki entered the industry with socks that stay together during washing. The hope is that this innovative feature will put an end to all the single socks showing up in Danish homes.
Advantage of cotton socks.
Socks keep your feet warm on cold days, and make it more comfortable to wear shoes, but you probably did not know that some of the best things about wearing socks are their sweat transferring capabilities.
Since our feet make up the part of the body that is at the high end of sweat-production, it is comforting knowing that simply wearing socks will prevent possible odour nuisance.
