OPEND is a Swiss born sock wear brand where their idea of a sock has no limitations and is used as a statement and performance piece. OPEND work in a shared atelier in the heart of Switzerland’s Kreis 3 in Zürich. Their socks are simple: One-Size and Unisex, which makes it easier for you to shop online and to create minimal waste by eliminating any overproduction. Now that's pretty damn efficient and the environment likes it too. Ps. They are plastic-free!
Made in the south-eastern province of China. Yes, that’s right, we ARE „Made in China“. But nothing better than overcoming a stereotype, right?! We ship plastic-free and once we can take bigger orders, with ship freight, meaning minimal pollution. We were lucky enough to meet up twice with our manufacturers and even though we don’t speak the same language we perfectly understand each other when it comes to innovating and perfecting our OPEND socks together! They are hands-down the best. Our friends are being certified with the WRAP certificate which ensures ethically and environmentally high standards. High five to these guys!

Meet our SHE-E-O - our young, female CEO, who we like to call Eve. She has been building the brand since 2018 off the back of her creative talents honed from her time working in the advertising industry and her international experiences gained from working in over 5 countries. She created several projects that landed in the press or have gone viral on social media. These experiences make her an unconventional thinker and having her at the helm of OPEND makes her the ideal person to reinvent the business of sportswear.
