We exist to create happy and healthy products that are gentle on our skin, our planet and our communities.
Hi, my name is Melita. This picture of me with my kids is a little old. I’m now a mom of three (we just haven’t got around to taking new photos)!
I started Q for Quinn when I could not find a pair of socks that was gentle enough for my son who suffered from eczema.
When I did my research, I was shocked to find that 90% of baby and kids socks were found to have harsh chemicals containing BPA and Parabens.
Therefore, in setting out to create the perfect pair of socks, I wanted to make sure that they were also the safest. This is why every pair is made with GOTS certified organic cotton or responsibly sourced merino wool and produced in OEKO-Tex-100 certified facilities to ensure the absence of harmful chemicals and toxins.
My small team and I strive to create basics that are healthy and comfortable. Basics that are gentle on our skin, our planet and our communities.
We sweat the details. So you don't have to.
As moms, we are adamant about the little details. Little details matter. They are the difference between daily morning battles with your kid to get them to wear socks and them happily and independently reaching out for their socks.
We've fixed everything about traditional socks that get in the way of comfort and safety - from no-seam toes to grips that actually grip.
Good for you. Good for our community.
a note from our founder
1 Pair = 1 Meal
"Growing up in Sri Lanka, where poverty is widespread, has helped me truly appreciate how fortunate my children and I are. My children may never learn or understand what it means to go to school hungry, or not be able to go to school at all. What they can learn is the importance of giving back to other children that are less fortunate. We donate a meal with every purchase, making you the most important part of our cause. We cannot thank you enough for supporting our business and cause!"
