SOCK OF THE WEEK - BABY SOCKS!

So, it's been far too long since we posted our 'sock of the week'...the silly season is around the corner so taking the time to sit down and write has been a far off dream. So little time, so much to do! But I have some time this Friday, so I thought I would post about the cutest little dream socks that we have just released! Our baby socks. Can you believe the cuteness? These baby socks come in navy with red and white sail boats and a blue and pink sock with little white puffy clouds.

SOCK OF THE WEEK - THE CARB SOCK

Often customers will ask us which socks from our range are our favourites. What a tricky question! Our socks are like our babies, and favouritism is cruel, right?! So, we decided to post a 'sock of the week', every week. We still feel it's cruel, but hopefully less so. This week, we're loving our new Carbs socks. This design is a bit like a protest piece. Covering a pair of socks in carbohydrates is our way of saying NO to this banting craze that's going around. Other names for this sock include: The Anti-Banting sock, and The No-No-Noakes sock. Many South African's will have heard of local scientist and professor, Tim Noakes, who has endorsed this high-fat and protein (banting) diet...

The Boy on the Suryanagari Express

The winner of our Storytellers competition is Gina van der Ploeg. We loved this heart felt story of her train ride through India, and the kindness shown to her by wonderful strangers. A true story written by Gina van der Ploeg   Anyone who has ever been to India before the monsoon season knows how relentless and soul destroying those few weeks can be. The sun beats down; shade provides no reprieve and clay bricks radiate intolerable heat into any room. We were one week into our nine months of backpacking and my friend Jem and I were already homesick. Who would have thought that all we needed was a Mumbai-bound trip on the Suryanagari Express, saving us from the...

RHINO SOCKS

FEAT. sock co. recently designed a sock in collaboration with 'Rhino Saving The Survivors'...it just came out of production and we think it's so cute.
