Where are your socks produced?

We produce our socks in Turkey. These percentages vary every year, because each country has its own specialization.

We believe it is important to focus on establishing long-term relationships with our suppliers and work together on the basis of mutual trust.

In the longer term, this contributes to a higher return for our suppliers, our customers and ourselves. Both financially, socially and on sustainability.

As the world of textiles is constantly evolving, we maintain the highest standards in our sourcing policies and only work with suppliers we believe are able to meet our sustainability commitment.

What materials are the socks made from?

Seas Socks by Forebel socks are produced from 28% into ECONYL® regenerated nylon, yarn that is partly made from old resurfaced fishing nets and other nylon waste, 70% GOTS organic cotton and 2% elastane. In this way we generate high-quality, durable and high-quality socks that are very comfortable to wear.

What about the microplastics in your socks?

The way in which we process the regenerated polyamide in our socks ensures that the chance of our socks exuding microplastics is minimal. This is based on research from RIVM.

When will the order be shipped?

All orders placed before 5:00 PM will be shipped the next working day at the latest. We ship the orders via PostNL as a letterbox package. The delivery time is 1 to 3 working days. The socks are packed in a biodegradable envelope. You can then throw it away in the green bin!

Together we work for a better environment.

What are the shipping costs?

The shipping costs are 3.95 euros.

If you order for 40 Euro or more, we ship for FREE. This is calculated automatically on the website.

Special rates apply to shipments outside the Netherlands. The website calculates the shipping costs abroad. You will see this on the checkout page, so even before you pay.

Because we think the environment is very important, we encourage the purchase of several socks. This saves transport and therefore CO2 tax due to shipping.

We work automated as much as possible. After completing your order, you can no longer change it on the site. Therefore, please contact us directly by telephone during working days during the day. You can also send an email. We can then see if the order can be changed.
