Real art at your feet
Free shipping from € 25,-
Designed by: Helen Roeten, Alkmaar, The Netherlands
Helen is the artist behind the sock "Hope". She is the initiator of The Living Museum Project in Alkmaar. A place where people with a mental health background make art to enhance their recovery. This art is called Art Brut and, according to Helen, stands for "Art to make your soul." Helen is bi-polar and as a result undergoes recurring episodes of anxiety and depression. She is limitless, which means she is always living beyond her own limits. By default, these periods begin with three months of no sleep and last a year. She uses her experiences to inspire others in similar situations. She also helps other Art Brut artists make a living with their 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.
