About this project

Here at LemonSox we just want to deliver happiness and smiles.
All you need for a good day is inside our can: joy, freshness, memories, future, inspiration, excitement and confidence.  

There are two ways of treating scented and canned socks: you can either just look at this as the bright new funny gift idea for someone with a good sense of humor (or for someone without it), or, if you are more on the serious side, there is also a practical approach. 

We have noticed, that there are situations where you want/need to take off your shoes (at a friend's place, while getting (or giving) a massage, on a flight, in a long-haul bus, at the theatre, during Japanese tea ceremony, you name it) but after a long day you don't feel comfortable about the freshness of your socks. And that's where the canned socks come in handy, you just go to the restroom and voila! You're all set. And wait for the best part: you can hide your used socks back into the can and bring them home safely, as the can comes with an additional plastic lid!

  

 

We have selected the proven composition which is the best for colorful fashion socks. Here are the details:  

80% combed cotton
Combed cotton is considered higher quality and softer than cotton that hasn't been combed. The yarn is stronger and softer. The combing process also rids the batch of shorter fibers and impurities, which results in a finer, stronger and more compact cotton.

15% polyamide
Polyamide ensures sweat wicking and water-repelling properties. It has the highest resistance of all textile raw materials and it helps to keep the bright colors. So the socks with the polyamide usually last longer than those without.

5% elastane
This component is for comfort and elasticity. Elastane fibres can be stretched from four to seven times their length, therefore it ensures the socks stay up, just as you need them to. 

 

  

 

01. Can 
Tin cans are one of the most eco-friendly and the most efficiently recycled packaging. By reusing we save raw materials and energy and CO2 emissions are being reduced significantly. The can is 38mm (1.5 inches) high and 99mm (3.90 inches) in diameter. 100% recycable and reusable (check "05. Can cover").

02. Silk paper
Extremely thin (18g/m2) premium quality silk paper made in France, Provence region.

03. A pair of socks
A pair of our special designed colorful socks. 80% combed cotton, 15% polyamide, 5% elastane (please check "THE COMPOSITION" above to find out why all these components are needed).

04. Scented card
This is how the socks are perfumed - we just put a scented paper card in a tin can together with socks and seal it. And we only use high quality fragrances.

05. Can cover 
With this additional plastic can cover you will be able to reuse the can for months and years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

The idea of LemonSox™ came from the belief, that it is possible to deliver fashion socks in more interesting and bright way than ever before.  

Darius and Ignas have known each other for more than 10 years. And their experience covers the fields of web and product design, product development, customer relationship, marketing, production control and logistics.

  

 

We have made all the necessary preparations and we are ready to go live. However, to make this scented and canned socks idea possible we need to order a minimum amount of socks from the manufacturer. And this is where your help is needed.
Let's make this together!

 

 

 

 

 

 

                       

 

Risks and challenges

We have spent the time and investigated all the socks projects on kickstarter so far and have noticed, that there are three main issues here:

1. the quality,
2. meeting the delivery deadline,
3. communication after the campaign.

To deal with the first one, we have contacted more than 15 European manufacturers, sample tested and have chosen the one with 20+ years of experience, high quality standards and proven track record of successful cooperation with the world's biggest brands.

Regarding the delivery time: we know that sometimes unexpected things happen in most critical situations, therefore we have added enough additional time to be able to deliver your socks way before Christmas. We hope that if you get your socks earlier, it would be even better.

And we definitely know how important is to keep you updated. You will be the first to know all the news about our progress and status changes. And we promise to be very transparent on every issue we might face.

Please note, that prices in media above are approximate conversions and might change prior to time your money is disposed from your account.

After the successful compaign we will send you a survey asking for your sizes, design and scent choice and delivery address. We will be messaging you through Kickstarter and/or your email.
