HOW WE DO IT
TRANSPARENCY & TRACEABILITY
Plastic bottles are collected from the east coast of the USA.
They're sorted, chopped up & melted by UNIFI in North Carolina.
Then made into high-performance textile fibers for Teddy Locks.
We've transformed more than 14,000 plastic bottles
& saved more than 1,500lbs of trash from landfill!
Our recycled fibers are spun into our specially crafted,
luxuriously soft yarns - without the use of chemicals or water.
We use five specially engineered yarns in all of our socks.
Spartan Dyers, a local, family run business based near Charlotte,
dye our custom colors - including our Teddy Locks yellow.
From fiber to finishing, they travel less than 200miles!
We knit all of our socks at Robinwood Enterprises
- a family run operation dedicated to helping the community.
Here we use green certified machines that knit each of our socks as a single piece. So that trimmings from color changes are the only waste generated.
We are working with Robinwood on a recycling program
that benefits all of the brands using the mill.
They are 100% American Made,
All of our socks are washed without detergents or chemicals at Robinwood.
We then skip the dryer & instead board them using only steam.
Once pressed, each sock is inspected by hand.
and the World's Most Sustainable Socks!
All of our packaging,
from the stickers & tissue paper to the mailers & labels,
are 100% recycled & recyclable,& made in the USA.
