Fazl Socks

A social business dedicated to working alongside women & children in need, Fazl Socks donates 50% of their profits to orphanages AND creates fair jobs. For each pair sold, you are helping provide orphaned and destitute children in India with food, shelter, education, and clothing; along with sustaining jobs for the ladies who knit their socks. & to top it all off - it's a pretty awesome sock & I'm sure you will end up wanting multiple pairs :P 

Fazl Socks has 3 H's in production - Handmade. Himalayan. Happy Ladies. While collaborating with graduates from the children's home, Fazl recognized the need for jobs with the amount of women struggling to meet ends, but possessing talents to create. They began a partnership with these women in the community, and began making knitted socks while still supporting the children's homes. These homes act as big families - making sure the children have the essential tools to lead a bright future and attend college. Currently, there are around 20 million orphans living in India, as well as 25% of the world's unnourished people. Just as simple as buying a pair of socks, can truly go a long way. 

Working from home, I like to stay comfortable. Socks, or some sort of house shoe, are always a must. Bare feet just really aren't my thing. My Fazl Socks are that perfect weight - right in between your regular all day sock and house slippers. Plus, the sweet patterns and funky colors put a good smile on your face :D During our hurricane evacuation this past month, I hardly left the Asheville cabin for the week - the Bundar {Monkey} socks hardly left my feet, too. We only had a fire to heat the living room, so the ground was a bit cold.  I love the description Fazl wrote for them - "If a couple of Plain Jane socks gave birth to a rebellious teenager ... it would look like this!" - hah, totally agree! The deeper burgundy socks, aka Khushee, are coming right in time for the holiday season. Stay tuned for their launch online!

Not sure if you have started your holiday shopping yet {it sneaks up on ya}, but these socks would look so sweet in a stocking. After all.. they kind of look like mini stockings!
