Welcome to Gorilla Socks! We are a New York company providing men and women with an exciting and colorful range of premium quality bamboo socks whilst focusing on the conservation of the Mountain Gorilla.
You are probably wondering why we use bamboo cotton for our socks as opposed to regular cotton? Well there are several reasons: not only is bamboo luxuriously soft and incredibly comfortable, it is one of the most eco-friendly and sustainable plants on the planet; it's the fastest growing plant, requiring only 10% of the land needed by cotton and just one third the amount of water. For more information on the many benefits of bamboo fiber please visit our homepage.
And why are we called Gorilla Socks? We chose this name to reflect our commitment to the conservation of gorillas. In 2016, the Mountain Gorilla was declared an endangered species as war and persistent poaching has taken its toll on this incredible animal. In our bid to support the gorilla species we are delighted to partner with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, a charity that has been in the trenches of gorilla preservation for 50 years - thanks to the extraordinary Dian Fossey's legacy.
And this is where you can help us! Our pledge is to donate to the fund at least 10% of every pair of socks you buy! We are also going one step further and are working on an exciting sockscription combined with a gorilla adoption. Stay tuned to learn more about this in the coming months!
Our launch collection comprises 6 bold styles to brighten up your sock drawer with more styles to come in the new year. You can check out the whole collection here.
So what can you expect to see on our blog? As well as touching on topics close to our heart, such as wildlife conservation and fashion tips, we will be collaborating with influencers from the fashion industry to bring you the latest fashion trends as well as products from other socially conscious brands.
We are also excited to announce a monthly guest post from the fantastic Exiled Brit so stay tuned for his first post in a couple of weeks!
Don't forget to show us your #gorillasocks on Instagram to enter our monthly giveaway.
All that's left to say is, welcome to the concrete jungle!
