Thunders Love socks are designed in a little village in the North west of Spain, at the bottom of a beautiful estuary, at the mouth of Lerez river, near Portugal border. They are produced in small family workshops by hosiers who have been doing this for three generations. The designs are made with traditional knitting methods, which combined the highest cotton quality.
“In a world where industry goes at great speed, we stand by, respecting the production period of little quantities per day and adapting our designs to the present time.
We only use high quality materials, like Egyptian cotton, unique by its finest quality and famous by its long fiber and thin yarn. The long fiber increases the quality of the yarn, and the thin yarn provides more density to the fabric. Another agent that contributes to the high quality of the cotton is its manual harvest, it reduces the pressure on the fiber and protects it better. Recycled cotton is a material adapted to our philosophy of the respect of the environment. We work with cotton recycled in Spain, with offcuts coming from the textile industry. In order to make this type of cotton, chemical products like chlorine and other aggressive agents for the environment are not needed since the colours are created selecting them without any process of dyeing. Usually while harvesting and processing a lot of water is used, however, the recycled cotton doesn’t need any.”
