Fair Entrepreneurship

Sustainability, honesty and transparency

SOXS symbolizes love and warmth. Just like grandma, who knitted socks for grandchildren Soscha and Davide. For us SOXS is also an ode to the love and warmth of Davide. With this product you show that you care for people and that you, like us, respect our natural environment. Because love and warmth are not only intended for your feet, but also for the society in which we live. We are committed to a better world. Fair entrepreneurship is essential for us. We would be happy to explain to you how we contribute to this with our responsibly created wool socks.

What does socially responsible entrepreneurship mean for us?

Corporate social responsibility is often abbreviated as CSR. The synonym for this is sustainable entrepreneurship or honest entrepreneurship. CSR means that companies are responsible for social problems such as climate change, working conditions and human rights. So, what does it mean for us?

Fair Entrepreneurship at SOXS

At SOXS we focus on sustainability, honesty and transparency. That is why we are committed to a better world. For a world in which people, animals and the environment are respected. In all honesty, we’re not perfect, but we’re doing our part to make the textile industry more sustainable!

Responsible sheep's wool

Responsible sheep's wool

The socks are made from organic sheep’s wool. Yes exactly. Sheep wool. The wool for your SOXS socks comes from sheep that have a good life in New Zealand and are bred in an animal-friendly manner. That is why we support the guidelines of the International Wool Textile Organization (IWTO) on sustainable animal welfare. In animal welfare, five principles are observed, which meet the physiological and behavioral needs of the sheep. These are: the environment, nutrition, health, behavior and care. Organic wool for which the sheep are lovingly treated.

The processing of our animal-friendly wool

The processing of our animal-friendly wool

Back to SOXS. Our sustainably produced and super soft wool comes from New Zealand, but the production process takes place in Europe. The factory in which SOXS wool socks are made, is GOTS certified. GOTS stands for Global Organic Textile Standards. This is a standard label for organic clothing and textiles.

The production takes place in a socially responsible manner in which the fulfillment of strict standards is controlled. These globally recognized standards include the use of environmentally friendly chemicals and water treatment in the factories. In addition, GOTS certification requires compliance with social criteria when processing the wool socks. This applies to issues such as the minimum wage, the prohibition of child labor and a safe and hygienic work environment. SOXS does not use children’s hands in the manufacture of wool products. We are committed to good working conditions and fair wages for our employees.

In addition, the production of SOXS socks is subject to strict quality controls. We are convinced that our wool socks are sustainable and high quality products that you will enjoy for a long time! Thanks to our high quality standards, you should of course also make a contribution. That is (bio) logical! Read here how you can best care for your ‘SOXS‘.

So, responsibly made wool socks

Here you go! That was a long story. We want to be open and transparent about the way we work. We believe that this is part of honest entrepreneurship and we thank everyone who supports SOXS. We are very proud of you! If you have any questions or tips for us, please do not hesitate to let us know. After all, you cannot create a better world just by yourself.
