Behind each collection is a goal to promote comfort, durability, innovation and aesthetics using the best technology possible. The most important thing about the Falke collection is it is crafted with the highest quality material that is not only comfortable, but stylish. Falke is most known for their high quality hosiery collection ranging from tights to ergonomic socks to knee highs.
Falke has been dressing people for over 100 years. The company was founded by Franze Falke in 1895 and it is headquartered in the Sauerland town of Schammelenberg. When Franze Falke began his company it was a small knitting business producing two dozen socks daily. Over the years it grew and changed along with the world. It is now the home to over 3,000 employees and exports to more than 30 countries around the world. Though the company grew and changed, the family stuck beside it along the way. Fourth generation Falkes now run the business. Franze Falke's great-grandsons, Franze-Peter and Paul Falke manage the entire company. Falke is known as an international clothing, hosiery and lifestyle company, but in the states the brand is mainly recognized for their socks, hosiery and tights.
Falke cotton touch socks have taken the fashion and sporting world by storm. The socks are made in a fine semi-sheer cotton knit with seamless toes and heels. An elastic band insures the socks do not move throughout the day. All Falke hosiery is made to fit the customer's lifestyle. Only the highest quality materials are used to the comfortable fitted hosiery that will not fall down during the day. Falke hosiery brings together luxury and comfort allowing you to feel like an international style icon. Some styles have lacy tops while others provide sensitive bands that will not irritate the skin. Falke has been showcased in many top fashion and lifestyle magazines. The sports line and other Falke socks are featured in 'Runner's World' and 'Bicycling SA' as well. Celebrities like Keira Knightley and Naomi Campbell swear by Falke socks.
Customers say they stock up in every color offered in the knee high socks due to their ability to be worn year round with just about every style. Lovers of the socks say the best thing is they do not bind at the top and stay up. Other Falke customers have said the collection of tights are sheer and durable making them able to be worn for many years. They like how the tights do not make them feel as if the tights are trying to suck them in at all times. The Falke tights allow the person wearing them to breathe.
The philosophy to support the active and everyday woman is a perfect one for those wearing Falke. Falke simply believes women should not have to choose between elegance and comfort. The Falke style inspires a feeling of 'zeitgeist' or what they call, an enjoyment for life to all that wear the collection.
