Since 1992, Maggie’s Organics has been making cozy clothing that’s both environmentally and socially sustainable. As if that’s not fab enough (it is), they recently solved the problem of a surplus of not-quite-perfect socks by creating these adorable sock monkeys. They’re made in in the US in a worker-owned co-op from said “imperfect” socks (which are Maggie’s own American-made, organic cotton crews) and stuffed with polyester mill scrap.
The result isn’t quite soft and squishy, but more solid and decor-y. So he’d be right at home in a nursery, sure, but I rather like having one standing sentry here on my desk. -Mir
