Birds of Paradise

Real art at your feet
Free shipping from € 25,-
Designed by Jidske van der Klundert, Maastricht, The Netherlands
Jidske has spent her life trying to live as a grey mouse in the world of "all the other people". A life that for her resulted in an impossible task, a task she no longer wanted to take on. Fortunately, a turnaround came. She was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and ADHD and slowly her shortcomings turned into special qualities in which she found strength. She learned to see herself as she really was. Poetry and photography gave her a tool to show this to others as well. The bird of paradise that she drew for this pair of socks symbolizes the transformation from the grey mouse she tried to be to the bird of paradise she actually always was.

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.
