Upcycled cotton socks

Custom branded upcycled socks made from recycled textile waste

Every single month, we’re scouting the world for the most influential and innovative promotional merchandise options designed to boost your brand identity as effectively as possible.

Socks are one of the most cliché gifts wrapped underneath the tree at Christmas, but they are a gift that keeps on giving all year round. Putting your brand on your customers’ feet isn’t just a great promotional concept, but now is incredibly eco-friendly. Introducing upcycled socks.

In 2018, Britons binned 300,000 tonnes of textiles that consequently end up in a landfill. At least 50% of these textiles could have been reused, recycled, or upcycled.

Rather than being recycled, upcycled socks are manufactured from cotton fibres recovered from textile waste. These materials are then combined with carrier fibres for strength before being coloured without the use of water, dyes, or chemicals.

Upcycling yarn is free of hazardous substances and saves over 43.4 billion litres of water, 61k tons of CO2 emissions, and 157 million kWh of energy per year.

At Sycal, we can help source sustainable branded merchandise solutions with Upcycled Sock.

The upcycled socks are made from 85% upcycled cotton and other fibres making it the most eco-friendly and sustainable pair of socks in the world. Just because they’re upcycled it doesn’t impact the quality or comfort, with high quality knit that enhances durability and absorbs sweat. Optional cushioning on the sole can provide even greater comfort and make these socks an asset to playing sports.

Just a single pair of upcycled socks can prevent the waste of at least 1300 litres of water, reducing CO2 emissions and with no toxins created. You’ll want to remove your shoes and show these socks off with your full custom design in up to 6 different colours and a free recycled branded sock tag.

Keep up a Christmas tradition while having a positive planet impact!
