First socks company joins Fair Wear

Fair Wear Foundation is happy to welcome Star Sock as a new affiliate member.

Star Sock produces sports socks for various well-known brands. ‘Every discipline within a sport requires a sock tailored to match the specific activity’, states the Dutch company on its website.

Fishing nets
In 2013, Star Sock was one of the founding partners of the Healthy Seas Initiative which main objective is to remove waste -like fishing nets- from the oceans.  The nets are spun into yarn, of which new star socks are made.

For Star Sock CSR manager Erik Rozen, membership of FWF is a logical step. ‘We believe Fair Wear Foundation is the natural partner of choice. They can help us to make our socks feel even better for all of those involved in making them.’

The first Brand Performance Check of Star Sock will take place after the first year of membership and will be published on the company website.
