Irish Brand, Sock Co Op launched in July 2020.
The idea for Sock Co Op was born after the founder Anna, took a trip to the Skellig Islands. When she arrived back on terra firma and wanted to purchase a memento to mark this epic adventure, she realised that a design dilemma had presented itself when she could not find anything she loved.
“I wanted to create an Irish souvenir, that was unique, high quality, well designed, affordable, and sustainably minded. Since Lockdown we completed our first collection, produced it and launched our website and we’ve had customers from all over the world buying gifts for loved ones to remind them of home during lockdown. The personal notes we are asked to write are incredibly sweet and poignant, some have even brought a tear to my eye, it has been an unexpected reward for me personally. I thought these socks would be for visitors to Ireland, but in fact they are for anyone who loves Ireland, even those who have never visited the country."
