The Socks

Created in collaboration with Tender, together we've created a short run of knitted, hand linked socks that have been naturally dyed with Workshop Coffee.

Founded by British designer William Kroll, Tender is inspired by antique workwear, and the Great British Steam Age in particular. Their products are currently found in quality-focused apparel stores across the world, from the UK and through Europe, right on to the US, Australia and Japan.

Kroll's approach and product philosophy is beautifully embodied in the name of the business itself; creating products that he feels are honest and tactile, 'Tender' eloquently yet succinctly captures his approach to each piece.

These rib woollen socks we’ve created together are made using natural unbleached woollen yarn. Knitted and hand linked in England, they initially take the form of a long, continuous tube of many socks which are then cut apart into create individual socks. The process involves taking these cut, still-open socks and then knitting the two sides of one end together to create a flat, seamless join at the toe.

They have then been submerged in a dye vat with several kilos of finely ground coffee, and the natural dyeing process has imparted a beautiful caramel colour, reminiscent of espresso and milk drinks.

A collaboration that’s been created to wear in, not out, we hope you enjoy the results.

The Coffee

Developing our Legacy Filter blend has been driven through the desire to support our core producer groups through paying premium prices for larger volumes and more lots of coffee. The flavours are very complementary, and we have been honing our roasting approach to ensure the resulting cups are harmonious and balanced.

Please note:

The colour in natural dyed socks may transfer for the first few wears- we recommend washing cool, with similar colours, and not wearing with light coloured shoes until the socks have been washed a few times.
