Our Bamboo Sock Story

Who are Polly and Andy?

Polly and Andy are mother and son, who live together with Tom in the beautiful fishing village of Cheekpoint in East Waterford Ireland. Andy is the centre of Pollys world and his comfort and well-being has been her utmost priority since the day he was born.

Andy has always loved his snuggles and his comfort (he gets that from his mam) and there was a time when he wasn’t fully able to communicate how he felt and what he needed. With time, patience and lots of love from Polly and help from some really special teachers, Andy found his voice.

“these ones don’t hurt” 

One day, as Andy was getting dressed, he pulled on his trousers and happily declared these ones don’t hurtbefore running off to play. Though Pollys heart twisted for Andy, she immediately thought about the kids who may not have the words to say how they feel and what they need. Polly needed to fix this for Andy.

After a lot of research, trial and error Polly found the perfect solution, bamboo fibre socks.

Check out our We love Bamboo page to see why.


Polly knew bamboo socks was the best way to make sure Andy was comfortable in his own skin.

Polly and Andys bamboo socks launched in summer 2019.

The Future

Polly hopes that every person can be wrapped in a layer of love around their toes with a pair of Polly and Andy bamboo socks. Everyone deserves comfort.
