We believe that socks are a way of expression, of sharing interest, of expressing to the world what we are made about.
We believe that socks are about love.
Here in Portugal, where we design and produce our socks, we have a tradition in textiles and we love what we do, that’s why we create The Captain Socks. We carefully choose our raw materials and the integration of the best technology to produce high quality socks to last (seamless, 200 needles machines and a jackard finishing).
Our brand is a tribute of what we do and what we love, designed with minimal patterns that represent our passions.
We believe that home is where the heart is and ours is in Portugal. But our mind and our socks (or as we call it: “meias”) can follow your steps anywhere in the world.
All our raw materials, labels and production are "Made in Portugal", that´s the way we find out to have a control in the production and also garantee, that all the people, included the ones that work in our suppliers have good work conditions.
So, from our home to yours: wear socks, show uniqueness.
We were on our second “Camino de Santiago” in March 2018, when the ideas started to burst. Was in March of 2018, raining a lot, every single day, you guess, every single day, need to change our socks several times.
That´s why we start thought about socks and why we don´t create our first project? – everything came up, how they’re made, how they are a symbol of our individuality and how hard it was to find simple products with good quality.
Of course, we asked “we should start making them”. Yes, it was a crazy idea – but what’s life without some boldness?
Without having any idea on how to put it into reality, we started our research process, tested dozens of different socks, visited many factories located in Portugal and did the drawings that we thought were simple enough for anyone to like and expressive to make a difference in everyday look.
Our hard work stands out to us and for that we hope you can relate to the results.
