Star Sock founder and colourful inspirator Eric Roosen started Star Sock out of his basement in 1996. Today Eric and his wife —and co-founder— Angelie Roosen, run their family business out of an innovative and sustainable Head Office in the Dutch city Oisterwijk. Star Sock sells over 25 million pairs of socks every year, and this number continues to grow.
Together with our dedicated and enthusiastic teams in Oisterwijk and Zhuji (China) we strive to continuously innovate; offering surprisingly sustainable socks and ‘worry-free’ processes which contribute to a better world. We take work off the hands of our mass merchant clients, by providing tailor-made bestsellers, offering comfort for their customers feet. We help our clients by being successful in selling sustainable socks. We do not keep stock but produce private label products designed according to our clients’ wishes. As licensee we successfully market the sock proposition of various well known brands.
Besides making socks we respect our environment and actively invest in preserving it for future generations to enjoy. We are one of the founding partners of the Healthy Seas initiative, which strives to remove waste, such as fishing nets, from the seas. These nets will be upcycled into highly innovative ECONYL® yarn. At Star Sock we have the exclusive license to produce and sell socks made from this exciting new ECONYL® yarn.
We face our challenges by being consciously different. We show that you can change something and create a better world by being yourself. Eric Roosen aims to inspire others with his vision and ideas. He shares our Star Sock journey in his engaging public speeches during which he puts our company values Pleasure, Passionate, Pure and Professional into practice.
It is our pleasure to take work off our clients hands by providing surprisingly sustainable socks and being consciously different!
