Boulder, CO â€“ January 12, 2010 â€“ TEKO, the leader in sustainable, high performance socks, is pleased to announce that their new Eco-Lifestyle collection will start arriving in stores April 2010. This new collection, featuring street-savvy patterns and colors, signals TEKO's expansion into the lifestyle market. As the Eco-Lifestyle name suggests, the company continues to make responsible materials and manufacturing choices as testament to their unwavering commitment to produce the â€œBest Socks on the Planet, Best Socks for the Planetâ€.
Eco-Lifestyle is made from organic, chlorine-free tekoMERINO. TEKO's merino wool comes from a group of farms in Argentina that have raising sheep organically for decades. Organic merino wool is more expensive than the non-organic alternative, but TEKO believes the investment is worth it, both for consumers and the planet.
Many of the technical features from TEKO's performance range have been carried into the Eco-Lifestyle Collection to ensure all day comfort including seamless toe construction, Y-heel for anatomical fit and arch band for support. The collection includes both men's specific and women's specific styles. Like all TEKO socks, the women's specific styles are designed to fit a woman's foot and leg with a more narrow heel pocket and tapered toe.
For the April 2010 launch, customers can choose from a variety of styles including:
â€¢ Women's Heidelberg (floral), Vienna (novelty stripe) and Barcelona (textured solid).
â€¢ Men's Innsbruck (diamond), Vancouver (novelty stripe), Montreal (textured solid) and Copenhagen (ribbed solid).
Visit TEKO, booth 34151, at Outdoor Retailer Winter Market, January 21-24, 2010 to view the entire Eco-Lifestyle collection.
