The May [Women’s Sock]


The May sock is an ode to May Ayim’s poetic and political personality and is particularly inspired by her book “blues in Schwarzweiß” (Blues in Black and White). This is “for […] those that all too often fight alone and die unnoticed, who are rarely celebrated and yet remain unforgotten.” 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, leather-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.
