Jem Sox

Jemsox has been at the forefront of sock manufacturing for 50 years, constantly innovating, creating and exploring new production techniques with the latest yarns.

Now under the guidance of Ben Pain, this family business is now on the 3rd Generation and is launching its first Wholesale Collection to mark the Company’s 50th Anniversary. Sustainability forms the foundation of the Collection, with the exciting introduction of a Recycled Sock which undoubtedly meets our Industry’s move towards a more environment-friendly footprint. The development of this fully Upcycled Yarn is now complete, and the Recycled Sock Collection will be available from April 2020.
