Real art at your feet

Designed by Miek Knook, Leeuwarden, The Netherlands
Miek became homeless at the age of 19 due to an unsafe home situation. She stayed with friends and acquaintances, she was a "couchsurfer" as it is called. At school, she walked around with a large shopper bag. To classmates, she told them she was staying or going to do something fun on the weekend. In reality, her whole house was in that bag. So couchsurfing is the theme of the sock she designed for us.
Miek now lives in a home of her own again and works at The Living Museum in Leeuwarden. Here she continues to develop herself as an artist of portraits and surrealistic paintings.

Our socks are linked seamlessly. That's just a bit nicer :-)
This artwork is made of: 95% cotton, 3% polyester, 2% elastane
Wash at 30 degrees and the socks are not allowed in the dryer. (we do that ourselves, we can handle them ;-))
We design our socks with outsider artists. They have stories about homelessness, addiction or psychiatric challenges. They are the heroes behind the most beautiful socks in the world. And when you wear them...
We make socks
When you buy a pair of socks, a bit of magic happens. We create a pair of socks in our Social Sock Factory. A place where we provide work to people from the streets. And... all these socks we give away to those in need.
We donate socks
Socks are not collected but thrown away worn out. Many people depend on clothing collection, there is a shortage! Together we can solve this. Unique socks for you, warm feet for them.
