We understood all what you need and we presented options accordingly. Now, it’s confirmation time! Along with pointing out your final socks design requests, you start confirming the order quantity, composition, and size.

A Sample Is On Its Way

Now that we have agreed on every tiny detail, it’s time for some samples. This phase is the least time-consuming; within a week your customized samples are ready. If we are talking about “quality samples”, samples will be totally free. However, if you request a specially-customized sample incorporating your design, production and delivery fees will be charged. Our customized samples are the typical version of what will be produced, accurately highlighting not only the quality of materials, but also the design we agreed upon.

Yarn Selection

When producing your order, we use our standard socks knitting yarns that consist of 80% pure cotton and 20% mixed fabrics. Let us tell you a bit more about those mixed fabrics. They are 50% Lycra mixed with either polyamide or polyester, adding to them 5% Elastic. Through this combination, the 20% of the mixed fabrics function as the support system for your socks. They have been proven to provide optimal support the yarn, resulting in a perfectly fit and comfortable size for all sizes.

First Inspection

It’s quality assurance time! Once the first socks production line is out, our quality inspectors delve into every single sock to examine it thoroughly. It’s moved from one eye to another until we ensure that all the socks are error-free, and then we proceed.

Linking/Sewing Socks

Socks machines are responsible for the hard work, while our employees provide the guidance. With the machines automatically linking and sewing the socks, the efforts of our workers are directed at manually detecting defective socks- if any- and fixing them instantly.

Boarding

The boarding stage is a simple one. It paves the way for the final stage by ironing the socks and making sure they are kept in perfect shape. And then they go to under a fixed degree of pressure and temperature to keep the socks tidy and bright.
