Surprised by coffee socks? Yes, they do exist and they are a unique concoction in their own right. In the Philippines, coffee is not only a staple drink—it is also incorporated into clothing—from shirts, slacks, activewear, and even socks. Darlington has a line of coffee socks — a first in the Philippines. But how is coffee infused into clothing, particularly, into socks?
Allow us to spill Darlington’s unique methodology of incorporating coffee into 100% Cotton USA socks: Coffee grounds are combined onto the yarn surface using a low-temperature, high-pressure, and energy-saving process. This, in turn, changes the characteristics of the filament and allows the coffee grounds to be woven directly to the very yarn of the socks. Ultimately, this methodology of imbuing coffee grounds into the socks poses some benefits for its end user:
1. Controls odor and antibacterial
Coffee grounds are natural deodorizers. They possess caffeine, which boosts their ability to neutralize unpleasant smells and ward off foul smell. Consequently, caffeine contains nitrogen, which in turn, increases the ability of carbon to absorb sulfur, which is often associated with putrid odors. Apart from that, coffee has antibacterial properties, too.
2. Sweat wicking
Aside from keeping odor and bacteria at bay, coffee also naturally wicks sweat, as the grounds are embedded onto the very yarn of Darlington coffee socks.
3. Dries 200 times faster than cotton
As the coffee grounds are processed, its carbon material becomes “activated”, which then allows the socks to be UV and moisture resistant
The finished product is a pair of extra comfortable, highly durable, and quick-drying coffee socks that will surely keep your feet fresh and odor-free! Altogether, these organic coffee socks from Darlington do not only exceed cotton in terms of deodorization, but also add functionality to one’s socks-wearing experience.
