Hi, I'm Sam.

I set up Teddy Locks to turn waste into want.

Because I haven't always made socks - I used to make TV.

As a wildlife TV producer I got to travel to jungles, up mountains & to remote islands. But no matter how far away I was there was one thing that was still always there - single use plastic.

So, determined to fight the global waste crisis I built the most sustainable sock company possible.

At Teddy Locks we focus on using materials already in circulation, work with local, family run businesses & create our socks as sets - so that when you lose a sock, another doesn't get tossed in the trash!

Teddy Locks are more than socks. They are socks diverting plastic from our oceans, reducing landfill, preserving natural resources, fighting climate change & sparking conversations about sustainability.

They are luxuriously soft socks - so soft you won't believe they are TRASH!

Fight the war on waste with me!



Current rates of global production are unsustainable.

So, we avoid 'new' materials,

& instead knit with 'waste'.

Learn more about the materials we use here.

We knit on circular, green certified machines,

producing each sock as a single piece.  

We design our socks as sets

- to prevent lonely unmatched socks being sent to landfill.

Use only 100% recycled & recyclable packaging*

– tissue paper, stickers, shipping labels, envelopes, mailers... everything.

*Made in the USA.

Our entire supply chain is in North Carolina,

& made up of small, local family businesses.

We donate to local organisations & shelters.

& bank with an ethical & local bank.
