Welcome to Socklab: let us introduce you to the world of sustainable socks. Our Cradle to Cradle certified socks help you to reduce your footprint, literally!
Socklab is helping to build a responsible and sustainable world
Socks... we all wear them! We often don’t stop to think about the negative impact that these little pieces of material have on our ecological system though. A huge amount of water and energy is wasted during the production process, while people also work in appalling conditions. All to produce a sock that’s far from sustainable. There is another way!
Socklab’s nine sustainability goals
Socklab’s socks are produced at factories owned by our parent company, Interloop. We make a valuable contribution to the world around us during the production process, thanks to our nine sustainability goals. We prioritise the well-being of people and the planet but we believe that factors such as growth and equality are important too.
From the design to the crop to the sock itself, we work hard to achieve our goals, which are focused on People, Planet & Prosperity. That means we work to produce innovative socks that make the wearer’s life that little bit better. That’s not all though; these socks also contribute to protecting the planet and ensuring the well-being of the people who helped to produce them.
Socklab: innovation, research and development
We are Socklab. We think we can make the socks we wear better. Not just better quality, but better for people, animals and the environment too. We believe in innovation, research and development. We develop products that are sustainable, from the initial concept right through to use. We use organic cotton, and recyclable and biodegradable materials and yarns. Our sustainable production methods have earned us a Cradle to Cradle certificate.

Our Cradle to Cradle Certified™ GOLD socks only contain raw materials that are completely and endlessly reusable – without losing value. Energy is reused wherever possible in the production process. This means that even the spinning, knitting and finishing is sustainable. We also only use dyes that meet Socklab’s strict requirements. Our Cradle to Cradle socks will help you take another step in the right direction when it comes to sustainability.
