No More Lonely Socks With QNOOP

Have you ever found yourself missing a sock after putting a pair in the laundry? This is very common. Researchers determined that the average person loses 1.3 socks each month and more than 15 per year. And with the average person living to 81 years of age, that adds up to a whopping 1,264 socks lost during a lifetime. That is kind of a lot right?

Luckily there is a brand that has come to a solution to lonely socks. The Dutch brand QNOOP makes socks with a button on the one and a loop on the other. This way you can tie your socks together before washing them. Smart because you never lose one anymore doing your laundry. And it saves you tons of time matching your socks. On top of it its’ sustainable because people lose a lot of socks and then they throw away the lonely sock because there is no pair anymore.

The socks from QNOOP are ethically made in Portugal from organic cotton (GOTS certified). This uses 50% less water than when growing genetically modified cotton and there are no toxic chemicals used in the process.
The labels are made of recycled cardboard. And the button is bio-degradable. To make sure the socks are long-lasting, they are first steam and then press the socks in the factory in Portugal. This process prevents shrinkage and makes the socks ultra-soft.

From the collection of QNOOP I got the ‘Lurex Tube Navy‘ socks. Here are some pictures:

Wat Mooi – Sustainable Fashion Favorites For The Autumn

Sustainable fashion has the bad reputation of being hippy, lumpy, itchy, hempy and unstylish. Nowadays producing ethical fashion and good looking pieces is becoming more of a priority for brands. It can be hard to look for those brands but luckily some web shops make it easy for us to find them. I want to show you my latest discovery: www.WatMooi.nl. This webshop only sells clothes from sustainable brands. Every brand chooses its own way of making sustainable fashion. Some brands pay particular attention to people in developing countries, other labels try to be gentle with the environment as much as possible. Completely sustainable does not exist yet, but it is important that some brands are doing the best they can at least.  After checking out their current collection I listed out my favorite items to make this a sustainable autumn season.

Pink ruffle blouse

This pink ruffle blouse from the Alchemist is romantic, tough and bohemian. Easy to combine with jeans or a skirt. The blouse is made of 100% viscose.

Yellow and beige sweater

Sustainable sweater Trui Wol Recycled Stripe Honey
This striped sweater from the Dutch brand Alchemist is a basic must-have for the autumn and winter. It is fairly made from recycled wool. Nice to combine with sneakers or with boots.

Pink, grey and yellow sweater

This gray knit sweater from the Dutch brand Alchemist is great for the coming season. It is made with responsible animal-friendly wool. Wool is a great material. It is soft and warm. Note: better wash it by hand.

Colorful stripes sweater


Stripes are always a good idea. The color combination of yellow, white, red, dark blue and light pink provide a real fashion look.  The sweater from Armedangels is made of 100% GOTS certified organic cotton.

Pink sweater

Soft pink is a color that is becoming trendy more and more. This sweater from Armedangels is made of 100% organic cotton. A lovely sweater that is easy to combine and is both sporty and classic.

Indoor baseball jacket

This baseball jacket from King Louie Organic is great to wear indoors. It is soft and comfortable. The jacket is made from natural synthetic fibers. The zipper is nickel free.

Black biker jacket

This biker jacket is made of vegan suede. This is made in Italy from PET bottles and recycled polyester. Recycling means a reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The jacket is made by hand in Portugal. So you really have a unique and timeless item in your closet that you can enjoy for years.

I hope you get inspired and next time you are looking for sustainable clothes and accessories you give it a try and check WatMooi out. You can shop online HERE
