We Are Kind Socks, the Sock Brand for sustainable conscious buyers who are fashion forward.
Kind Socks is an organic sock wear brand with one aim: to develop fun and beautiful socks in sustainable materials. That means organic cotton that is pure. No pesticides. No toxic chemicals. #stylewithkindness
But why organic socks?
Environment, health, education, and charity are the major interests that drive us. Therefore, it was obvious to me to build for the future and start something that could make a difference in the world. I am also inspired by the high awareness that exists in Sweden about the health and environmental damage caused by non-organic products.
Kind Socks will feature an almost endless variety of models and designs, using a broad spectrum of colour combinations and original patterns.
Pledge $10 or more to receive your first pair of KIND SOCKS (retail $16, the discount of $6!). The first 25 pledges receive this discount! HURRY, this is EARLY OFFER!
PLEASE NOTE: At the end of the Kickstarter you will be sent a survey where you tell us which design(s) and size you want.
Follow the instructions below to find the perfect size for you.
1. FASHIONABLE FOREVER
We feel that sustainability starts off with the design philosophy. We strive to make beautiful socks, designed and inspired by fashion and the seasons. Our designs are fashionable and timeless at the same time. Since our socks last very long, creating designs which are fashionable forever is key.
2. FINEST ORGANIC COMBED COTTON
Climate change is one of the biggest themes of our era. Therefore sustainability is at the core of our brand. We are not perfect, but trying every day to be as sustainable as we can be. That’s why we use organic combed cotton which is certified by GOTS, the Global organic textile standard (GOTS). This is the Michelin guide for organic clothing, and it sets the highest ecological, sustainable and social requirements for pesticide, and insecticide free natural fibers.
Because they are made of quality and natural materials, our socks will last you a long time and will not rip after just a few wears.
4. STYLE WITH KINDNESS
Style with Kindness means to be careful with our environment, and trying to keep our footprint as small as possible. To us, this also means innovation and teaming up with like-minded businesses and organization to achieve this. The impact is something we make together. Good thing there are many companies working towards the same goal.
As a creative person with a lot of ideas on my mind, I knew I would one day start something that will move us one step away from being just an idea I had in my head. After working for several years on digital communications, I decided it was time to stop doing what I was doing at that moment, and start working on fulfilling my creative needs. I talked about making socks several times before, but it always stayed at the idea stage, never really moving any further than that.
Since, I am fans of colours and but more importantly producing something that was sustainable and ethical – but when it comes to socks, I was buying something that was either colourful or ethical – but rarely was the case that I found a sock that offered both. And quite frankly, I was bored of buying products that don't care about the planet or person that are making it. So I decided to create socks that I wanted to wear. Socks that I envisioned and wanted to make a reality.
I was lucky to have found a family-owned factory in India that produce socks that are GOTs.
So quickly started talking to an old friend Queenbe about producing some fantastic designs/patterns. What she produced was fantastic and better than I could have dreamed.
I love the community Kickstarter has built and have a great respect for all backers. I feel very psyched about your pledges as you do and I can't wait to deliver some awesome socks to your feet. Because the world of apparel works on bulk quantities, the money raised with this campaign will be mainly used for two reasons:
1. To cover the costs of production of the 9 designs presented in the campaign and if the funding exceeds the initial goal,
2. I will be able to offer these designs in other colour combinations, as currently are limited in that matter. But just imagine what we could do if we would have threads in colours we really, really wanted? M-A-R-V-E-LL-OUS!
But of course, I am not looking at this as a one-hit wonder. I have great plans for Kind Socks in the near future. And with your help, I will be able to expand the sock wear line and offer a wide range of accessories along with it.
Ja! You would be cool as a cucumber if you would share our campaign with your friends and family – and don't forget to follow us on our great adventure via our social media.
A whole lot is needed for a campaign as I envisioned. And I couldn't have done it without these:
Product Designer extraordinaire: Queenbe Moneyi
Video Production: Fanny Hæffner
Photography: Therése Billing
Stylist: Kalere Payton
Hair Stylist: Sara Steele
And all my family and friends for tremendous support!
Risks and challenges
Kind Socks is in a way my first baby - I have been working on it for almost a year, perfecting every detail and making sure it fully represents us and all that Kind Socks stands for.
Please note that these dates are estimated deadlines – of course, problems may occur, but no worry. Actually, to be quite frank, I believe you will receive the socks much sooner. But just in case, let's make it 14th September.
Of course, I may meet with minor difficulties or obstacles on the road to producing and delivering socks to your doorstep, but I only see these as stepping stones for the future of Kind Socks.
If you are not happy with the sock size you selected because it simply does not fit you, you will be able to exchange it for a different size.
If at any point, BEFORE your pledge has been shipped, you would like to change the sock size or your choice of sock design, you are able to do that – just contact us. No biggie.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
