We’ve written before about the textile and manufacturing history of the Shoals, and our current strides towards revitalizing manufacturing within our community (and beyond). Florence was once known as the T-shirt Capital of The World, and another northern Alabama town—Fort Payne (home to Little River Sock Mill)—held the title of Sock Capital of The World. We are proud to launch this line of Alabama-manufactured organic cotton socks, alongside the machine-manufactured line A. Chanin.
The collaboration features subtle colors that seamlessly integrate with our collection of handmade garments, Basics, and A. Chanin. The socks are made with certified organic cotton, nylon, and elastic and are produced with low-impact dyes.
Gina describes Little River Sock Mill’s designs and styles as “a bit more grown up” than her other brand, Zkano. Our collaboration is offered in two styles (over-knee and slouch) and a range of colors and designs.
The over-knee socks have become favorites here at the studio—some of our staff refers to them as ‘boot socks’, as they pair nicely (and comfortably) underneath a pair of tall boots.
Our sales team at The Factory has found that when paired with a classic poncho or an organic cotton scarf, the slouch socks make a perfect, practical, and stylish gift.
Purchase the socks, manufactured in collaboration with Little River Sock Mill, at The Factory or from our online store.
