Wear a pair, Share a pair

 

We're stockists of these excellent socks. We think they make great gifts because they are great quality, come in really smart packaging (the tin you can re-use) and they look gorgeous. Oh, and they've got a great story too. We caught up with Ed, Founder of Jollie's to find out more.

Jollie's socks

Interview with Ed Vickers, Founder of Jollie's 

 

Please tell us a bit about you.…

I'm Ed, 26 year old chap from London. I went to school in Bath and uni in Exeter, where I started Jollie's. I like, running, walks and socks.


Why did you start your business?

I started Jollie's after feeling frustrated when walking past people sleeping rough and not knowing how to help. I got involved in a local homeless project and learned that socks was a real need for those sleeping rough.

 

What do you want people to know about Jollie socks?

I want people to know that our brand, Jollie's, exists for those with a little. Jollie socks are made in England, off each pair sold another pair is given to your local shelter.
