Quality of Life, Guaranteed

No one ever outsourced anything for quality – a statement we often share to state our pride in knitting all our socks in Vermont. But we also recognize we are responsible for each other’s quality of life. So that might be:

• Based right here in Vermont, because that's where a quality of life starts
• You can wear sweatpants if that's important to you
• Multiple shifts and work schedules that accommodate your life
• Sick days to care for yourself and your family
• Employee Assistance Program
• Deep discount on socks


We Value Differences

We are direct, straightforward, and truthful. We value honesty and a hard day’s work. We are penny foolish and pound wise. We are tough, independent, and respectful. We value families. We wear it on our sleeves. We are authentic. We have yet to produce our best sock.

Keep It Simple. Keep It Real.

Authentic is not just a buzzword. You do you, and as long as you can keep it classy, we are good. We want your best. We want your sense of humor. We want your passion. We just don’t want you microwaving fish in the breakroom. Our socks are odor resistant … our breakroom is not.

We Have Yet to Produce Our Best Sock

All joking aside, we are a company dedicated to producing the world’s best sock. As idealists, we go to work every day with a goal that never has an end. We hit milestones, and we redefine goals as we do. Produce the best sock, be a company the world can be proud of. Do it again. Do it better than before.
