Darn Tough Socks
Darn Tough is a multi-generational, family-owned business dedicated to manufacturing in the out-of-the-way, close-knit community of Northfield, Vermont. While the Cabot family has been running the mill there for 40 years, it wasn't until 2004 that they launched Darn Tough socks.
When Darn Tough says it produces socks that will last you a lifetime, you can believe it. That's because if anything should befall your pair of cozy, comfy--and often colorful and cushiony--Darn Tough socks, the company has your back. That's right, Darn Tough is so sure its products will give you a lifetime of wear, it's willing to offer an easy solution should you find that isn't the case.
Sure, there are other companies that produce high-quality socks. But, it's the lifetime warranty that differentiates Darn Tough from the rest. The company makes it as simple as possible. Customers don't need a receipt or proof of purchase, just their pair of clean, worn-out socks. After completing an online claim form, the customer simply ships the old socks off to the company. They'll then be given a code to use on the company's website and soon their new socks will be shipped to them. What could be easier than that?
The company actually uses its warranty data to continually improve its processes and materials, so it is always striving to knit a better sock. The result is not only a durable pair of Darn Tough socks, but also socks that are comfortable and keep their performance fit.
The company's community outreach to fight hunger has caused it to look at its unconditional guarantee in new ways, by striving to find new opportunities to help and support those in need, unconditionally. Darn Tough has given back to the community where it is headquartered by partnering with the Vermont Food Bank. What began as a first-time donation on a Giving Tuesday back in 2017 quickly grew to a donation of 1 million meals donated by 2021.
The experience has caused Darn Tough to offer a new type of guarantee--the guarantee that it will continue to work toward ensuring Vermont is able to support all citizens, unconditionally. Darn Tough now augments its Giving Tuesday activities with other programs and actions throughout the year, all part of its commitment to give back to the community it calls home.
Not only is Darn Tough concerned about the health of its community, it's concerned about the health of the planet as well. Darn Tough's sustainability strategy starts with continually improving the durability of its socks. Longer-wearing socks not only make customers happy, but reduces product consumption and keeps textiles out of the landfill. It is also in the process of converting its wool use to 100% Responsible Wool Standards (RWS)-certified Merino Wool. RWS requires wool producers to follow strict animal welfare guidelines and sustainable farming practices.
