No Water. No Dyes. No Toxins. No Thank You! We do not treat our upcycled fabrics/yarns with dyes or other toxins such as Formaldehyde and heavy metals commonly found in clothing and that is dumped into our waterways, rivers and oceans. Every year 57 billion pounds of toxic waste are dumped into local waterways, endangering water supply, local communities and health of our world’s oceans.
Help us educate and inform about OSOM BRAND SOCKS to bring new, innovative products to the marketplace worldwide!
Extraordinary comfortable and breathable socks that are spun in a heavier knit perfect for hiking, skiing, outdoor sport, running, walking, cycling & daily use. Also great for snuggling in them at home or vacation!

Our mission was to create OSOM BRAND SOCKS to show that we can manufacture clothing in a new, more sustainable way, without compromising quality, style and function.
The beauty of making new yarns with recycled textiles, relies not only in the fact that we are helping reduce textile waste but we can skip cotton farming, save water and reduce the use of pesticides that damages the environment and farmers alike.
12.8 billion pounds of pesticides are used to produce cotton yearly in the U.S. contaminating grounds, water, rivers, oceans and it is devastating our wildlife too.
A successful mission relies on the people we work with.
We have teamed up with Guatemalan premium textile company that complies with our high standards of both social and environmental ethical manufacturing in every single stage of the process.
It is of great satisfaction that we have chosen a team in which our ethical guidelines are respected, met and often exceeded.

Risks and challenges
After 30 days, and the project is fully funded, we will contact you and ask you which pair you prefer to ship. Once we have all this info, we will place the full production order for the socks and adventure towel.
Our team is ready to ship in time for Christmas delivery and 100% aligned with the campaign. We are aware that obstacles can delay our delivery date for some international areas but we are confident that we will deliver on time to U.S. orders.
