The Ayim [Men’s Sock]


The Ayim sock is influenced by patterns often found on an African mud cloth. It symbolizes May’s roots and her fight for afro-germans’ rights and the struggles with isolation and racism many have faced. With this design, we stand with her convictions and activism for acceptance, respect and love for afro-germans! Learn more about the life of May Ayim here.

Where am I made?

I am produced in Poland, about 300km away from Berlin (where our head office is). I am made by a small family business who has been supporting their local economy for years. They adhere to European working standards and conditions and pay their employees fairly.

Who designed me?

I am designed by Kelly – a brilliant badass woman, kick-ass designer, mama of two, handmade-goods extraordinaire and creative professional. Read more about her on our blog.

How do I support women?

I tell the story of May Ayim and every time you buy me online, a donation is made to a women’s charity. Our company is owned by a woman. We aim to hire and support as many women as possible in every branch of our business!

What about sustainability?

My shipping packaging is 100% recycled and the only plastic on me is the small staple that holds the sock label together! My thread is also dyed in Europe.
