About Us

Our mission is to create socks that will transform, revolutionise and push boundaries.

We Know What Works

The Sox Factory started out as a small start-up company with only one knitting machine and two young sports enthusiasts with a passion to create one of South Africa’s biggest sock brands. Today, we employ over 40 full and part-time staff members and the factory has expanded and grown into a spectacular space where ideas come to life and over 35,000 pairs of socks are produced per month.
