knee high socks

(oo-boon-too) n.  Zulu or Xhosa word, a traditional African concept.

Ubuntu is a term for humaneness, for caring, sharing and being in harmony with all of creation.
“Africans have a thing called ubuntu. It is about the essence of being human, it is part of the gift that Africa will give the world. It embraces hospitality, caring about others, being willing to go the extra mile for the sake of another. We believe that a person is a person through other persons, that my humanity is caught up, bound up, inextricably, with yours. When I dehumanize you, I inexorably dehumanize myself. The solitary human being is a contradiction in terms. Therefore you seek to work for the common good because your humanity comes into its own in community, in belonging.”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Ground yourself in your values. Live with Ubuntu!

These wonderful quality socks were made by a fellow Michigan Company, Maggie's Organics, and then screenprinted with water-based printing. The word Ubuntu is printed on one sock, and the other sock reads I am because we are.

Black socks, size 9-11. Will fit most women, and men with small to medium feet. We hope to have bigger socks made at a later stage!
