Samantha Tollworthy, founder of sustainable sock company Teddy Locks

Hi, I'm Sam.

As a wildlife TV producer I got to travel to remote islands, mountains & jungles - but no matter how far away I went, single-use plastic was always there.

So, determined to fight our global waste crisis, I left my dream job to build the most sustainable sock company possible.

Made from materials already in circulation, by local, family run businesses in the USA, Teddy Locks are diverting plastic from our oceans, reducing landfill & inspiring sustainable choices.

They are luxuriously soft, longer lasting & better for the planet socks!

They are Feel Good Sole!


Teddy Locks was built to stamp out single-use plastic & fight the climate crisis

- it exists to inspire small steps towards a sustainable tomorrow.
