Real art at your feet

Designed by: Niek, Breda, The Netherlands
Niek is the artist of our Breda sock. Niek's life is like a story from a movie. He has been homeless for seventeen years of his life. Years of sleeping under a bridge, living in a forest and traveling around our country while walking. Alienation and little faith in a "good" future made him prefer to be homeless. The thought that many sometimes have of disappearing completely off the radar, that thought gave Niek hands and feet. He did not want to be helped by any of the many relief organizations in the Netherlands. Being a burden to as few people as possible and worrying a lot about his life kept him going.
Art has been a constant in his life. He himself finds that art makes him less daydreamy. For example, by figuring out how a portrait, an animal or a landscape is put together. What style and theme fits it? These questions make his environment more tangible. As a homeless person, you are often shunned and few seek genuine connection. Art was always nearby and helped him "talk" about life issues and his feelings.
For Let's do Goods, Niek created a painting of the streets where he walked endlessly, unobtrusively and anonymously. We got to know Niek as a gentle, intelligent man full of principles and ideas. We are proud that Niek wanted to join our project to design together the sock of Breda.

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.
