    Our Process & Materials

    Quality Materials. Streamlined, Sustainable Process

    We’re very particular about what zkano socks are made of and how they are manufactured. Our organic cotton is grown on farms in the Southern U.S. by farmers we actually know. After harvest, cotton travels to the Carolinas where it is spun and dyed (with low-impact dyes) before arriving at our mill in Alabama.

    We knit socks in very small batches at our family owned and operated mill. Our team of ten (including Mom and Dad) run the manufacturing process from start to finish. And, because our entire operation is under one roof, we're able to constantly monitor quality throughout each step of the process, minimize waste and deliver a stellar product.

    Additionally, our packaging, labels and marketing materials are printed within a 100-mile radius of our mill. That’s our whole process, straightforward and simple!

    Giving and Recycling: Our irregular socks are donated to the mOM doll Project and to homelessness shelters and community organizations in Alabama.

    We 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.

    Great socks

    Very happy I found this company, these are great socks. It’s unbelievable how difficult it is to find mostly cotton socks but I finally did. I work construction and my feet stay hot; cotton socks I’ve found help tremendously and I finally found some worth reviewing. To say I’m pleased with these is an understatement. Zkano will be my go to for socks from now on.

    Quality product!

    So comfortable and comforting! Top quality product. Made in the USA.

    Tread- Heavyweight Crew

    So glad I found these socks! Husband loves them. MUCH better than the thin versions I used to buy that wore out so fast. They fit well, lots of cushioning. Will definitely keep buy again. Yay Zkano!!

    Simply great

    Love these socks. Very comfortable. Fits well. Great feel. Would buy again!

    Crew socks

    We finally found some socks that fit my husband and stay up. Thank you

    Love these socks!

    Suffered a broken ankle resulting in bone grafts which enlarged my ankle and instep. Every other sock I tried was tight around that area, particularly late in the day when it seems to swell a bit. These socks have enough room to accommodate that issue and are very comfortable. I will be a repeat customer!

    5 stars!

    Love zkano socks. Starting with the knowledge that the land where the cotton is grown is being cared for in a beautiful way to the fact that they are fully made in the USA and finally that they are comfy, stretchy, and long lasting. Go Zkano! Go organic farming!

    Great Quality Socks

    In addition to the high quality socks the customer service gal was so professional and helpful. Overall a great experience and I will be placing another order.

    Love these!

    My husband swears by these socks, as do I. Thank you for offering such great products at a reasonable price.

    Feel great

    Very nice, comfortable socks! Will order more.
