My Experience

After finding more eco conscious underwear options I started searching for sustainable socks and came across Leiho!

They had so many cute designs on their website, so I opted for their 'mystery box' to see what they'd choose for me. I ended up with the navy crew socks with little smiley faces on and they've instantly become one of my go-to pairs of socks!

The bamboo fabric of these socks is so incredibly soft and cosy so that fact it's sustainable and organic is a huge advantage.

If you want to treat yourself to some cute and cosy socks all while helping those in need, I recommend taking a look on the Leiho website.
