Camden Socks

Regular price $16.00

Tax included.

Comfy and cosy bamboo socks featuring the iconic Borough of Camden logo, part of our range celebrating London's municipal design heritage.

This logo was designed for the newly-created London borough of Camden by Wolff & Partners in 1965. The logo depicts four pairs of linked hands, representing a new modern era of communality and democracy. Surprisingly, it is one of the oldest borough logos still in use. In recent years, many councils have adopted newer (mostly less good) designs.

All funds raised from the sale of these socks will be used to create important educational programmes making London more accessible and equitable.

Our second run of Camden Socks have been made by our partners Peper Harow to an updated design.

About the logo's designers

Originally trained at Hammersmith School of Art, Michael Wolff's design partnership with James Main and Wally Olins helped redefine the rules of corporate and communication branding during the 1960s and 70s. Working with a diverse range of organisations including BT, P&O, Mothercare and Ministry of Sound, Wolff's design for Camden is still in use to this day.
