Quality Materials. Streamlined, Sustainable Process
Zkano is very particular about what zkano socks are made of and how they are manufactured. Their organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers they actually know. After harvest, cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed (with low-impact dyes) before arriving at the zkano mill in Alabama.
They knit socks in very small batches at their family owned and operated mill. Their team of ten (including Mom and Dad) run the manufacturing process from start to finish. And, because the entire operation is under one roof, they're able to constantly monitor quality throughout each step of the process, minimizing waste and delivering a stellar product.
Additionally, their packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a 100-mile radius of our mill. That’s the whole process, straightforward and simple!
Giving and Recycling: their irregular socks are donated to the mOM doll Project and to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.
They have some socks that are not fit for donations. These are repurposed or recycled and if recycled, they are transformed back into yarn used to make socks.
