Welcome to the home of cotton-sox! For handcrafted gifts, handbags, nursery items, home décor and accessories, some with an African influence!

“bless your cotton socks” is a term of affection to the recipient, and a name my late father used to call me as a little girl. I enjoy a bit of quirkiness now and then, so working with cotton and in honouring my father it seemed like the natural course of action to name my small business ‘cotton-sox’.

Sewing was introduced to me by my grandmother who could always be found making something from scratch whether that was preparing a meal or sewing a garment. Times were tough then and sheets that had worn thin were never thrown out, but rather patched, repaired, or darned. As my love for her grew, so did the love of her creativity grow within me. I have always been found trying out new crafts, however, sewing has always remained a constant for me. My cotton-sox range varies and continually evolves from home décor, to handbags, accessories, and more! My heritage has always been British, but my roots are ‘out of Africa’ and with this I incorporate in some of my designs the original and traditional Shweshwe cotton fabrics from South Africa which date back to the early 1820 settlers of the Cape.

All my products are proudly handcrafted by me with nothing being mass produced thus making them all individual, unique and statement pieces. Always paying close attention to detail from inception right down to the wrapping and posting of the item purchased. I would like my customers to have the ‘feel good cotton-sox experience’ from the first communication to execution, and finally to the receiving of their purchases.

I hope you will join me on my journey to turn cotton-sox into its own unique brand. All items are handcrafted by me on the outskirts of Edinburgh, Scotland, in the United Kingdom.

Thank you for your interest shown in my work and “bless your cotton socks!”

Sizing details for cotton-sox items can be found under the description of the item. We aim to give you as much and accurate information regarding the sizing as we possibly can give or take a few millimetres here or there.

Care instructions

Should the item require any special care instructions, this will be provided and enclosed within your order. Each item is handcrafted with time and detailed attention given, and should always be handled with care.
