- HIM & HER
- NZ MADE
Knowing that fashion and sustainability go hand-in-hand, we understand that every action we take today has an impact on tomorrow. This is why we are committed to using sustainably-sourced, eco-friendly fibers in every product we make, allowing you to embrace your individuality without compromising your earth-friendly principles.
How are your products made?
Solmate collect remnants from t-shirt factories that would normally go into a landfill, grind them down and re-spin them into our own yarns. They do not add any additional dyes or colors in this process, keeping them as "clean" as possible. These recycled yarns are certified by the Global Recycling Standard and Oeko-Tex.
What exactly are your products made from?
All of our products are knit from pre-consumer, recycled cotton yarn. Their socks are made from a cotton blend: 62% Recycled Cotton, 22% Recycled Polyester, 15% Nylon, 1% Lycra.
What does that mean for our planet?
In addition to decreasing the amount of cotton waste sent to landfills, our yarns also reduce the amount of water, land, pesticides and herbicides used to grow new cotton fibers. Every pair of socks we produce saves: 162 gallons of water, 1.12 pounds of CO2 emissions and 1.32 square feet of landfills.
Where are your products made?
Today, only 3% of apparel consumption is domestically-sourced. All of our products are manufactured at our own mill in Hickory, North Carolina. In addition to our sustainable production methods, we take great pride in caring for our employees, valuing people over profit. As ethical practices are paramount to our brand, we pay all of our employees living wages, along with generous medical benefits. We are proud to be one of the few knitting mills in American hosiery that offers these types of benefits and hope to inspire others to do the same.
