About the Ewers brand
The traditional German brand Ewers was founded in 1866 by Carl Ewers. In the beginning, the manufacturer did not produce socks, but high-quality knitwear for men and women. It was not until many years later that socks were added to the product range. With the first hand-knitting machines, the workers then produced woollen stockings for ladies and gentlemen at the beginning of the 19th century. In the years that followed, the Ewers manufacture suffered several crises and eventually had to file for insolvency. In 2014, Ewers was re-founded, and from the beginning the focus was placed on the production of high-quality socks, stockings and tights for babies and children. Today, Ewers is known for its particularly colourful and creative designs that make little ones happy. Other products at Ewers include quality leisure socks, sneaker socks, stockings and leggings for men and women. Ewers products are designed in Germany and produced mainly in Europe. Socks and stockings for adults are even manufactured at the company's site in the Sauerland region, Germany. Ewers socks are produced under strict quality controls from selected materials. The socks are tested annually according to the strict Oeko Tex® 100 standard. This most stringent level of the textile seal ensures that no harmful substances have been used in the sock production process that could cause harm if they come into direct contact with the skin. After passing the test, the socks are certified by the renowned Hohenstein Research Institute. A small collection of baby socks from Ewers is certified according to GOTS. This seal ensures that they come from fair production. Certain standards are adhered to that ensure a particularly ecological and sustainable production. It also guarantees that the people involved in production are paid appropriately. The majority of Ewers socks and stockings are produced in Europe. This eliminates long transport routes to Germany, which reduces CO2 emissions and protects the environment.
