We decided to work in collaboration with Rohner to offer you two quality European brands and expand buying opportunities in the Canadian market. Rohner differentiates itself in the socks market by three elements: technology, innovation, and quality. The Swiss company focuses all of its efforts to create the most innovative and comfortable socks. To achieve this goal, they implement the best materials available, and they use their own developed and latest technologies.
When Jacob Rohner founded his socks company in the small town of Balgach in the Rhine Valley of Switzerland in 1930, he had a revolutionary idea in mind. He was looking to create a sock that would excel in performance, comfort, quality, and design – the essential companion to the most demanding conditions and activities. Using a circular knitting machine, the finest natural materials and an attention to detail only the Swiss could perfect, Rohner, broke the mold, exceeding all expectations of what a sock should be. Rohner socks are made for everyone; Athletes, business professionals, and kids.
Today, Rohner’s fundamental mission remains true, but the socks have evolved. Each day, they build on an already-perfect sock, innovating and discovering new technologies to take it to the next level. Every stitch has a reason, every fabric has a purpose. Those socks are produced with high-quality materials and with the best technologies in Europe (Portugal, Italy, and Germany). One of their interesting technologies is the Rohner Air Channel System R.A.C.S. This system improves dampness control. Indeed, dampness is drawn into the terry with the help of High Tech Yarns (i.e. Coolmax®). The puffers, which are made of cotton or woollen terry, collect and store very efficiently the dampness. In addition, they guarantee more comfort through dry feet and dryer socks.
As a Switzerland company, Rohner takes the environment very seriously. That’s why they have created the Next footprint project to minimize their footprints on their products. They use low water consumption, no chemical release to waterways and climate neutral sourcing of energy. Sustainability is in the fabric. They use organic cotton in the socks and they respect the All International European Regulations. They have removed all plastic from the packaging and replace it with sustainable biodegradable paper. At Rohner Socks, their words respect their actions.
