The mission of “Alpine Fair” is to create and supply high-quality socks and other hosiery products made of natural yarns that will satisfy customers with all the different demands and tastes through the combination of traditional craft and modern technology.
A friendly, fair, and creative work environment is essential to make a company profitable and enjoyable for its employees and owners.
Alpine Fair one-stop services from design proofing, sourcing of raw materials, knitting, sewing, shaping, packaging to logistic. Sample pairs are produced and sent to a client for quality, size, color and details confirmation. We start production process once the samples are approved.
Raw materials are washed, spun into yarn and colored at the factory. The yarn then comes with big yarn spools. A multitude of needles then knit the various threads into a series of interlocking loops. These loops form the tube of woven material used in making socks. For the best possible fit and comfort, each individual garment part and size is made on individual stitching machines with different diameter needles. Computerized sock knitting machines work at high speeds and can easily be programmed to produce a wide variety of socks.
All parts come out in finished tubes. The great advantage of this is that the finished garments have a minimum number of seams, which allows for better comfort, and eliminates excessive rubbing from bulky seams. After inspecting turns individual pieces inside out and do linking and seaming processes. Hand-linking, seamless linking or auto-linking will be applied to the different type of socks.
3. WASH AND DRY
They are washed and dried to shrink and stabilize them. This wash is done with water only; no detergents are used.
Socks are shaped with the help of heat and steam, on metal foot stretch frame. This gives them the proper shape and smooth appearance.
The quality inspection takes place in every step of the production process and the most thorough product quality inspection takes place right before packaging in order to guarantee that no socks are defective or contaminated.
After the socks have passed an extensive quality control process they are ready to be packed following client specifications. Packaging is as important as the sock itself and all aspects are specified and confirmed. Band rolls, header cards, stickers, poly bags, pallets, cartons, etc. We can order custom package material from the designated supplier of the client as well.
7. SHIPPING AND DELIVERY
After manufacturing and packaging, the finished product goes to a safe warehouse for storage until they are loaded for transport. We only work with reliable freight forwarders that delivered all cargo at the agreed time and date.
