The SupSocks Story

Once upon a time, there was a girl called Tiana. Tiana liked art, and one day, she coloured some socks with a special, finely-milled fabric paint (non-toxic, non-polluting, made in Australia). She was s'posed to make a sock monkey with the socks, but they were so bright and colourful that she got distracted and forgot to stop. So she just kept colouring socks. Tiana's friends soon noticed her weird behaviour, and started saying strange things, like

“Those are sooooOoOoo COOL.” and
“How did you DO that?!” and
“Can I have some? Pwease?”

Her socks kept turning heads and she was attracting quite an odd following of sock enthusiasts, drooling and begging behind her everywhere she went. Tiana looked at them in surprise, and took it all in – the ecstatic grins, the imploring eyes. Oh dear. Well, she couldn't leave them in this pathetic state, it just wouldn't do. She stocked up on supplies and set to work, to satiate the hunger of the people. Thus, SupSocks was born.


Are SupSocks Washable?
Our colours are fully machine washable and will not bleach out (white shirts are a thing of the past in this household), but to prolong the life of your fabric – and the environment – avoid using harsh detergents.

What are SupSocks made from?
All SupSocks are cotton-rich, quality socks. They are dyed with a permanent silk dye, prewashed and heat-set. We want your SupSocks to last you through many enjoyable wears! Care instructions are sent with your purchase.
