We love it when a brand’s vision comes to life. When a brand can use an accessory piece like socks to make a statement. We want to empower your message with a powerful product.
For us, every detail matters - we take your concept and experiment with different thread counts, yarn compositions and special features to get to the ideal result.
We’ve been in the game for 26 years. Our factory was founded as a joint venture with the historical Czech company Lonka, established in 1862. Coming out of the Soviet Era, entrepreneur Myron Yesep officially registered the second corporation in all of Ukraine - “PE” Lonkame in 1994.
We are proud of our history, celebrating all the challenges we have overcome. In 2000, Mr. Yesep moved his family to Canada and established the Canadian division of the business - providing custom socks to Canada’s biggest national brands.
Today, we are most active in expanding our European clientele. We are well positioned to be a flexible and convenient option for Euro brands, and so we are growing our business every year.
Our lead time can be from 3-8 weeks. It all depends on which services you need done. If you are on a short timeline, we can accelerate by having you approve samples digitally. Production can be as short as 2 weeks - depends on whether we are using materials from our stock or making a special order for your materials. Shipping normally takes 6-10 days across Europe and 1-3 weeks to North America. Couriers may be delayed, subject to COVID-19.
Yes, we can send you free samples out of our stock inventory. You can ask for certain styles (sport, dress, winter, etc.). However, you will need to cover the shipping charge, which can be around €30 for Europe and around $100 to North America. If you want your own custom designs to be developed and sent to you as a sample, we can do that for a small fee. We regularly charge a custom development fee of €50 per design.
The delivery cost for samples is usually around €30 for Europe and around $100 to North America. Delivery for small orders can be up to €0.40 per pair, while larger orders have much more efficient costs, around €0.07 to €0.13 per pair. Delivery to Canada can be done cost efficiently if bundled togther with our regular container shipments. Delivery to the US may be around 10%-30% more expensive than to Europe.
For first-time orders, small customers or complex designs, we often charge a development fee of €50. This is to cover the risk of time wasted with our product development that won’t result in an order. When we are confident in the client, we will develop for you free of charge.
Yes, we have several great sustainable options for yarns. Some examples include GRS certified recycled cotton, recycled polyested, GOTS certified organic cotton, linen, hemp. Even some of our synthetic yarns like polypropylene are considered to be very sustainable based on the Higg Materials Sustainability Index. All of our yarns supplied and production are completely free of harmful chemicals, cetified by OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100.
Our minimum order quantity is 1000 pairs including two colorways for most options we offer. For some special yarns like dyed organic cotton, we have higher MOQs like 1500-2000 pairs. It all depends on the minimum quantity of specific yarn we can order from our suppliers, and also it depends on what we have in stock at our facility.
