This year, the manufacturer is creating a brand-new customer experience by adding some “Sparkle” and “Shine” to the sock knitting equation. With  a metallic yarn called Lurex that makes any Christmas ornament on our Classic Crew Socks sparkle. And a neon yarn, that creates the shine element on every snowflake or bell on your Classic Crew Thermal Socks. These types of socks can be created with conventional cotton from ethical producers within the European Union, high-quality reprocessed cotton that saves water, and electricity, reduces carbon emissions and landfill space, and chemical-free, sustainably produced and processed organic cotton, accredited to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).


Euro Cotton Socks 

Have you ever wondered if the personalized product you choose is truly sustainable? Or have you ever struggled to find new ways to boost morale in your firm? Socks created with Euro cotton and jaw-dropping designs might be just the solution for you. Imagine organizing a Christmas party for your employees. You will have the perfect opportunity to impress them by customizing promotional socks with your company’s logo, mascot or message. Kinglys guarantees you that the cotton comes from responsible and OECO TEX-certified distributors within the European Union. Furthermore, the brand possesses all the necessary accreditations, and their sustainability report is available for review: here.



Upcycled Cotton Socks

Upcycled Cotton provides significant savings in water and energy and reduces carbon emissions and landfill space. Upcycled yarn is derived from used clothing and pattern-cutting scraps from garment production. The upcycling process is mechanical, so no water, dyes or chemicals are used and the production process has extremely low CO2 emissions – the factory is 50% solar power. There is a huge difference between upcycling and recycling, as the latter still requires water, dyes and chemicals. It is better than discarding the goods, but it is not yet as environmentally friendly as upcycling.

Kingly wants to empower its clients to visualize the amount of preserved water and energy, as well as the reduction of landfill space and carbon emissions. This is possible because of the sustainability calculator. Last year, the brand helped its clients to save an astonishing 34 537 442 litres of water and 128 908 kw/h of energy. The carbon emissions have been minimized with 52 886 kg and 5833 m² prevented from turning into landfill. These socks have been awarded the Promotional Gift Award 2020. Learn more about last year’s preserved resources here and about BCome.’s sustainability report here.


GOTS Organic Cotton Socks

Kingly’s GOTS organic cotton socks have been awarded the Promotional Gift Award 2022. Spun with care and comfort, they are kind to the skin and so much gentler on the planet. No chemical pesticides, genetically modified seeds, or artificial fertilizers have been used in the cultivation of cotton.

No KS04) and Classic Crew Thermal Socks (Ref. No KS11). Crew Socks are the most popular sock on the planet which accounts for 65% of all Kingly’s sales.
