These socks do NOT come with packaging. tBab requested no plastic from the factory - typically products each are wrapped individually with plastic to protect them during transport/handling. This means you get them wrapped in paper/fabric, something Gemma has lying around the studio, and all CARE instructions are here.
Please care for these like you would any special garment. Socks can be cold washed in a machine with like colours. Do NOT dry in a dryer, only line dry. Do NOT use stain remover near the reflective - this part of the sock is precious - and strong stain removers can deteriorate glues used in the reflective vinyl.
MORE ABOUT THE REFLECTIVE DETAILS/
The fabric of the socks is stretchy - as socks should be. The reflective vinyl pressed onto the socks has some stretch but is made from tiny glass beads and layers of vinyl and glue to seal these (in laymans terms). So if you pull at the socks near the reflective you might notice more wear and tear or even some vinyl coming away. If you find the vinyl coming off or feel the socks are faulty - reach out! Each sock is pressed individually, and this is only my second sock design, so there's much to learn..
MORE ABOUT OVERSEAS PRODUCTION /
After speaking with all of the remaining sock manufacturers in Australia that I could get in touch with, it became obvious that to produce this sock - a tech sock with reflective details - I needed to work with an overseas manufacturer.
These socks were manufactured in Taipei, under NBCU Official Factory Approval for ethical conduct.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
