The design of the socks draws on two things: firstly, the pattern of pyjamas, for days when we’d rather be in bed and want to sneak a little comfort into our everyday officewear. Secondly, the design of old handkerchiefs, the type that our fathers and grandfathers would bring along to work. We wanted to pay tribute to them and at the same time, when wearing the socks, think about their dedication and sacrifice. While the generation nowadays tends to job-hop in order to ‘follow their dreams’, our fathers and grandfathers rarely had that luxury. Many of them have spent decades in the same industry (even the same company) because they were working for something bigger than themselves—their loved ones, a shelter over their heads, and food on the table.
