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.
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.
Tell us about the product…
Jollie's are made in Britain (Leicester) out of Combed cotton and packaged in London by one of our Apprentices. See more here (jolliesocks.com/giiving)
Tell us about wear-a-pair-share-a-pair…
For every pair of Jollie socks sold, a pair of Sturdy hiking socks are given to your local homeless charity.
The socks bought from The Every Space are donated to This is Growth. Tell us a bit about them…
These guys are a great little charity involved in supporting those in need in East London with food, shelter and long term support. See more here
