What’s the big deal about Egyptian Cotton?!

So you’ve heard us mention it loads of times and now you’re curious, are Egyptian cotton socks worth it, is Egyptian cotton good for socks and are Egyptian cotton socks good quality?!


Well, to start with, Egyptian cotton is grown in one of the most fertile places on Earth, the River Nile! Unlike regular cotton, which is picked by a machine, Egyptian cotton is handpicked, which results in longer cotton fibres and that's what is key to all of the magic of Egyptian cotton socks!

Those longer cotton fibres mean that the end result is a material which is softer than regular cotton, more durable than regular cotton and kinder to your skin – so Egyptian cotton is the perfect material for those who have sensitive skin or find that their skin is easily irritated. Egyptian cotton is also a more breathable material, keeping moisture away from your feet and so are extremely breathable!


It’s no wonder why Egyptian cotton is regarded as a luxurious material then! A fun fact is Egyptian cotton is very common in luxury bedsheets - it's used in most five star hotels given just how luxury it is!

Despite the fact that Egyptian cotton is more commonly used for luxury bed sheets, it's also used for luxury socks - just it's not that well known! That gave us the idea to use Egyptian cotton in our Persona socks - because based on our experience, colourful socks were normally made from low quality materials and looked a bit tacky. We thought our feet shouldn’t miss out on the comfort so we decided we wanted our men’s socks to be the highest quality and most luxury colourful socks out there! So why not treat your feet?!


All of the above and below factors are what make our colourful Egyptian cotton socks and our sock gift boxes so special! Our funky socks really are a great fashion accessory to complement any outfit - just take a look at our sock drawer!

Egyptian cotton absorbs dye better than regular cotton, so you can guarantee our colourful socks are very bright and vibrant!
