Located in Istanbul, Eligul currently makes the organic socks in our Solidarity collection. From the very first day we formed a transparent and honest relationship with the owner of the factory, Erhan Eligul. Because we embrace small badge production, we struggled a lot to find a factory to meet their minimum order quantity. We looked up to GOTS Producer Database and literally sent mail to over 100 producers. Only Erhan Eligül responded us. He believes in our values and sustainable future. His factory uses the most effcient, eco-friendly and pro-social technologies and practices. Their management aims to minimize the environmental impact of all their activities. They are also motivated to provide continuous education to build up environmental awareness among their employees.
