When we began in 1992, we had purchased thousands of dollars of certified organic cotton from our farmers. We knew that we wanted to tell the world what we had learned about chemicals and cotton, but really had no clue how to convert our fiber into something that people would want to wear. After many months of research, we set out to simply make a great pair of socks. Nothing fancy, just durable, comfortable, and made in a way that protected as many of the earth’s resources as possible.

We are proud of the fact that every pair of Maggie’s socks since we began has been made in the USA. Today we work with a total of eight independent family-run businesses in North Carolina, as well as two tie-dyers in the U.S. and Canada, who truly are our partners in creating our products and servicing our customers. In addition, supporting these domestic businesses lessens our carbon footprint.

All of our products abide by the OTA recognized American Organic Standards for Fiber. “Made in the USA” means that we conform to the most stringent pollution control standards in the world. Today our line of socks consists of many functional and fun styles for all ages using Certified Organic Cotton and Wool.
