BestSockDrawer Sock Book, read for free!
A thank you book for our dear hosiery and sock wearers!
We are very thankful for the challenging and yet creative opportunity that we have experienced through BestSockDrawer. We would like to extend our gratitude to all our customers and collaboration partners for having accepted us and remained loyal to us for ten years. The feeling that we can make your lives a little happier with BestSockDrawer gives us a tremendous amount of energy, which we can in turn invest into your happi - ness and our own. It is not like love. It is love
This book, however, is not only about us. It offers a broader insight into the world of socks and hosiery, and you will see that if you look at any seemingly simple topic in depth, it becomes clear that there is no such thing as a simple topic. These pages will offer you both serious factual knowledge and entertainment. And sometimes a bit of both at the same time. Thank you and enjoy the sock journey you are about to embark on!
