Meet Bonfolk Collective. A new sock social enterprise in New Orleans, LA. With every pair sold through Bonfolk Collective, a pair will be donated to a local shelter or individual in need in New Orleans, LA. It’s easy for most of us to forget how important socks are to our health since most Americans have easy access to a clean pair daily. At times we can forget about the many Americans who live without this luxury. Clean socks are essential to disease prevention, foot pain, warmth, & overall quality of life. When purchasing a pair Bonfolk Collective socks, you’re not only supporting a small business, but you are also helping the less fortunate in the local community.
The socks that are donated are not the same socks that you will purchase. The donated socks are specifically created for the needs of those less fortunate. The socks that are donated are a high quality sports sock made using premium cotton that wicks moisture. They are anti-bacterial & solid black in color to show less visible wear.
Founder, Janna Hart, spent time at Fashion School in L.A. While on the West Coast she lived near the infamous skid row in Los Angeles, which opened up her eyes a bit more to the homeless issue in the United States. According to the National Alliance to end Homelessness: On a single night in the United States, over 500,000 people are experiencing homelessness. Many of these individuals are without warm, healthy, and comfortable socks everyday.
