As a Brit, I am not averse to donning a pair of eye-catching socked feet - bold, playful and not too serious. No wonder then this wunderkammer Greek sock producer is right up our alley of eccentric style.
Not to be confused with the lovely poem: Ode to My socks by Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, the Athens-based Ode to Socks is an equally enjoyable ethical sock-brand that hums with whimsical notes whilst caring about the planet and environment.
Founder Xenia Vanikioti studied agriculture and fashion, a fascinating combination that literally helped her sow the creative seeds. Xenia's colourful personal apparel beautifully captures her artist fervour for life: a caring, global citizen of the world who embraces diversity and creative license.
Charged with the motto: 'Happiness is hidden in the little things of life", this considerate eco purveyor of colourful socks is sure to put a smile on not only your face but on those who stop and stare with fond amusement.
Made from 90% Greek cotton, the socks depict heroes, and each one narrates a story: Kira-Xeni, Fisherman, Sailor, Pappa, Pappa's Girl, Merman, Tsolias (Evzone) and Rempetis.
A little sock company with a big heart, oodles of creativity, and a 'colour me curious' mindset. Now, who says a pair of socks don't make a good present.
