Thought bamboo socks are made from 54% viscose derived from bamboo, 22% organic cotton, 22% recycled polyester and 2% elastane.
The viscose is derived from sustainably grown bamboo. Bamboo fabric is silky soft to touch and is just as gentle on the environment as it is extremely fast-growing and uses minimal resources. Bamboo clothing is thermo regulating too as it has the ability to know when you’re a bit cold or a little too warm. It’ll respond and react to what your body needs most!
The organic cotton used in these socks is Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified. This means it has the official organic ‘seal of approval’. Organic cotton is softer, kinder to your skin and so much gentler on the planet. It doesn’t need as much water or harmful chemicals as conventional cotton. Plus, it’s biodegradable so creates less waste going to landfill. Organic certification means that textile and fabric products are grown according to strict guidelines on the use of petroleum-based fertilisers, pesticides and synthetic products.
The polyester used in these socks is a special fabric produced from recycled plastic bottles. Once recycled and reworked, the fabric is strong and incredibly soft, making it ideal to blend with bamboo fabric.
In 2002 John took the fledgling brand (then known as Braintree Clothing) to the UK. He opened pop-up shops on London's famous Portobello Road and at Camden Lock market, and it wasn't long before a flurry of independent boutiques stocked the growing collection. By 2005 the Company had secured its own office and warehouse, and had introduced a womenswear collection. Braintree changed their brand name to Thought in 2017 to reflect their philosophy on sustainability. Today, the Company is still a small team of creative fashion designers based in North London working to create pieces that are effortless to wear and sustainably made.
