Our Process & Materials

Quality Materials. Streamlined, Sustainable Process

We’re very particular about what zkano socks are made of and how they are manufactured. Our organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers we actually know. After harvest, cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed (with low-impact dyes) before arriving at our mill in Alabama.

We knit socks in very small batches at our family owned and operated mill. Our team of ten (including Mom and Dad) run the manufacturing process from start to finish. And, because our entire operation is under one roof, we're able to constantly monitor quality throughout each step of the process, minimize waste and deliver a stellar product.

Additionally, our packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a 100-mile radius of our mill. That’s our whole process, straightforward and simple!

Giving and Recycling: Our irregular socks are donated to the mOM doll Project and to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.

We have some socks that are not fit for donations. These are repurposed or recycled and if recycled, they are transformed back into yarn used to make socks.

Best socks ever

These socks are soft, mostly cotton and last a long time. I buy them to support Made in America products

I ordered these to replace some old socks, and was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. They're nice and thick to keep my feet toasty and cushioned no matter what I'm doing. The plain color means I can easily wear them with dressier shoes in an office setting, meaning I don't have to freeze in polyester dress socks. They may be a bit pricier than the socks you generally find at a department store, but I know I'm buying quality that's going to last (I have other zkano socks that still look brand new even after wearing them weekly for 5 years).

Hi! Thank you for the great review. We're so glad to know how much your enjoying our socks and we appreciate you being a customer!

Happy Customer

Bought a pair of these socks for my husband to try and he loves them! I’ll be ordering more and like that they are made in Alabama. Great quality and fit.

Thanks Bonnie! We're so happy to know how much your husband is enjoying our Aspire socks. We appreciate you shopping with us and thanks for passing along the kind words!

Husband says Best Socks Ever!

I bought these as a sort of last minute trip gift, mainly because I wanted to support a small US business. My husband never EVER rhapsodized about socks before, but he sure did this time. He raved so much about them, I knew I had to get him some more, so guess what part of his Christmas is going to be this year? Yep - at least 6 more pairs of Aspire socks!

Thank you for the kind words, Nancy! We're so glad your husband loves his Aspire socks and we appreciate your support more than you know! Thank you for sharing the great feedback with us!

NOT your average crew socks

First of all, I am not a big clothes shopper. I buy stuff and use it until it wears out. I bought six pairs of Zkano crew socks in 2009. I am still using most of them today. A couple finally got holes in the last year, and our dog got a couple more. But the cotton in these socks is amazing. Soft, yet strong and supple. I also hate socks that bunch and have extra material. These conform to my feet perfectly. I am back now six years later to order my next six pairs of crew socks. All that plus the good that comes from buying from a US manufacturer who runs an ethical business. In 2009 they did not have black socks. Now they do. Put a grey or brown sock in your basic line and I would be ALL Zkano, all the time.

Most durable athletic sock available!!

For two years in a row, my now 21-year old son has requested these socks (I get them for Christmas presents because he normally is hard to buy for). He says they are by far the most comfortable, durable, easy care socks he has ever owned, and he is hard on socks. Hopefully these socks will be available for a long time as I am ready to order more - now my husband wants some too (his cheap, national brand socks wear out very quickly).
