About AzerbaijaniSocks

Sales 707
On Etsy since 2015

Your purchase of these socks helps women earn much needed additional income and provides deeper purpose and hope in their lives.

AzerbaijaniSocks' vision is to provide fairly paid, flexible employment for women in the rural parts of Azerbaijan, through a craft that has continued for generations, and to provide a cozy, handmade, unique, quality product to sell outside of Azerbaijan.  These socks are knit in homes, allowing women to work from home to earn income for their families.  Each sock is made with unique colors and designs.  These socks are a combination of high quality yarn, hours of labor, and modernized versions of traditional designs.

    Owner

    Teresa Hamlin is the founder of AzerbaijaniSocks. While teaching English in rural Northern Azerbaijan, she found many tourists who were interested in buying the socks worn by the locals, but they were not easy to find, made only for giving in dowries. The women also didn't have access to good quality yarn, or have the capital to be able to buy the yarn and make the socks to sell. Teresa had a few pairs made and they sold quickly and as it grew, AzerbaijaniSocks was created.

Frequently asked questions
Can I order a certain sock in a different size?

Because of the time it takes to get the yarn to the knitters in the various regions of Azerbaijan and then picked back up and tagged, etc, usually people are not willing to wait a few months for a special order. Sometimes we are not able to get the yarn colors that we want again.

Please feel free to ask if we have a different size or a color, and we can offer you from the stock that we have.

We have a large stock of socks and most of them are NOT listed on Etsy, as we sell to other retail stores etc, so it is likely that we do have a sock that you will like in your size.

When will my order arrive in the mail?

We now ship from both the US and Azerbaijan. Most of our items are shipped from the US and should arrive in 5-7 days.


The items that are listed in the title as 'Shipping from Azerbaijan' are shipped from Azerbaijan and you should expect your item to arrive in 15-20 days.

In the rare case that your package gets lost in the mail, we offer to send a new item similar to what you ordered or refund your money.

Please wait till three weeks after your item has been marked shipped until you contact us that your item has not come.

Thanks for your patience! Good things come to those who wait!

How can I care for my Item?

The yarn we use is 50% wool blend and is pre-shrunk. We recommend washing your slippers in the washing machine on cool or warm and then tumble dry on low.

The items also do stretch out a bit if you wear them, but they will come back into shape after washing and drying them.

If your slippers have a suede bottom you can wash in the washing machine on cold, but do not put in the dryer.

What can I do if my slippers get a hole in the bottom?

These slippers are not made to last forever as they are. Depending on how you walk and how often you wear them, they can get holes quickly in the soles.

You can patch up the holes with a simple thread and needle.

You can buy one of our suede sole packets and sew it on over the holes, but first try to mend your holes so your socks don't unravel.

You can buy a new pair with suede soles sewn on. ;)
