3 Summer Style Tips for Your Socks Game

In recent years, socks have been increasingly considered as an accessory. (Click on this link if you are interested to also have an understanding of the brief history of socks) It is what it is in the word 'accessory' - an item in your wardrobe that compliments the outfit you are wearing.  Adaptability is key in fashion, though. The biggest fashion disaster happens when colours and styles of outfits match the season poorly. These mistakes branch out to the socks they pick. Summer socks typically have sweat-wicking properties and are made in cotton (SOLOSOCKS takes a step further and makes socks in organic cotton compliant to the Global Organic Textile Standard). So here are 3 summer tips for your socks game. And you can thank us later for making this the best summer you ever had. 1.

A Brief History of Socks

A Brief History of Socks

Socks have been with us for a long, long time. Since the Stone Age, cave dwellers have created their own version of 'socks' - animal skin tied on their feet. Then, as time progressed, humans began using sophisticated technology they had at their time to create more comfortable and cool socks. Of course, these newfangled socks were a status symbol. By 1000AD, the noble class wore woven and knit socks. It is also worth noting here that socks branched out to include leggings and stockings. In the many centuries after, socks were adapted to suit fashion styles of the different time periods. Fast forward to today, we find cotton socks among the whole slew of materials used. One fact remains throughout the history of socks. Socks would always go missing, and this resulted in wastage as people had to pair them. Why do socks always go missing, though? You could read...

Where do missing socks go?

Where do missing socks go?

Recently, we came up with a crazy idea. We think that your sock is traveling through another dimension — a dimension not only of cotton and polyester, but of laundry detergent. A journey into a wondrous machine whose boundaries are beyond that of imagination. That’s the fabric selector dial up ahead. Your sock’s next stop: The Twilight (Sock) Zone. The modern day mystery of the missing sock The dilemma of disappearing socks is nothing new. If they had worn such footwear, presumably even the ancient Romans would have lost some socks in their urine-based laundering facilities. As it is, the mystery of the missing socks has been the subject of several books, inspired a spoof site called LOSS — Laundered and Orphaned Sock Society — from appliance manufacturer GE (now offline), spawned the marginally more serious Bureau of Missing Socks website, and was even the subject of one of Jerry Seinfeld’s stand-up routines. You can watch the video...

Donating 700 socks to refugee children!

Donating 700 socks to refugee children!

Yesterday, we had the awesome opportunity to donate 700 SOLOSOCKS to the refugee children at Danish Red Cross Center Sandholm! Sandholm is a public institution for asylum seekers in Denmark. It is located in Sandholm, Birkerød, Allerød Kommune.  It is a former military barracks, and the largest reception center for asylum seekers in Denmark. The center's daily operations are run by the Danish Red Cross and it also serves as both a receiving and departure center, for newly arrived asylum seekers, and asylum seekers who have been rejected.  It was a truly amazing experience, and we're just so excited to be able to give to the children who are most in need! The Red Cross were really excited to receive the socks and said that the kids would be happy, since socks are some of the the least donated items. It turns out, that people in need all across the world...
