Our commitment
OUR TRANSPARENCY

At Rockay, we make world class sustainable performance products, without
compromising on quality, while also helping to clean our planet from senseless waste. To make this possible, we invest a lot of time, money and research, in testing and finding
the best partners for our company. We pair ourselves with partners who think like us and
care for the planet like we do.
Our Commitment
...more
The majority of the waste that enters our oceans each year is plastic - and is here to stay. That’s because, unlike other waste, the single-use grocery bags, water bottles, drinking straws and yogurt containers are part of the eight million metric tons of non biodegradable plastic. This plastic remains floating around for a millennium, polluting our beaches, entangling marine life, and getting ingested by fish and seabirds. So here at Rockay, we want to do something about it. We are committed to cleaning up our oceans.
100% Recycled
...more
All our products are made from recycled materials. We source our fabrics from collected fishing nets and other harmful waste from our oceans. Many recycled materials, like nylon for example, can be regenerated to its original form and recycled as brand-new, resulting in a sustainable, high-tech yarn. However, we know we can recycle so much more, so in addition to our sock range, we are planning to launch our recycled fabric apparel collection. Currently, we are experimenting and testing the durability and performance of our products. Rockay is working on how we can improve both, by using yarn and materials with the lowest C02 impact possible.
Our Packaging
...more
We hate waste, so all our packaging is made from recycled paper or board, and sourced from sustainable sources. Even the inks we use are natural and don’t harm the environment. We are also reducing our packaging, to use even less paper, and eventually moving away from using boxes. All in an effort to lower our C02 impact and make it even easier to recycle. Unfortunately, some of the marketplaces we operate obligate us to sell our products wrapped in polybags, so we have sourced biodegradable alternatives, to avoid those extensively-polluting plastic bags.
Our Supply Chain
...more
We still have a long way to go, but continually re-evaluate our supply chain, to increase efficiency and lower our C02 impact. The majority of our mills and factories are located in Europe, with the exception of our trims, water bottle and hat factories, which are located in China. Our supply chain is under constant review and we will continue to strive to be as sustainable as possible. Our working conditions in factories are all certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015. A global standard that defines requirements for a quality management system (QMS), which is further explained in the Transparency section.
Our Dedication to Green Energy
...more
Our factory is run on 100% green electricity. The factory also has LED lights to lower the electricity used. Our expert team installed two central suction systems to run all 160 knitting machines. Before that, each machine was running on a separate engine and electricity consumption was much higher than now. Everyone is dedicated to constant improvement and sustainable practices.
Our Reuse Of Production Waste
...more
Our factory, where possible, recycles the empty plastic yarn cones back to our yarn supplier. The team is also working on recycling our cardboard cones. Currently, our factory is working on a project called Circular Economy, which explores the ways of making even bigger steps to become a greener factory and to look at the whole chain, reusing all that is possible.
Our Workforce
...more
Since our start in 2018, all our employees have been working remotely, from all around the World. Now, in 2020, we are opening Rockay Headquarters in Denmark, linking the Worldwide Team. Despite the different time zones, we all keep in contact every day and trust everybody to do their job. We don't have fixed working hours and this enables our workforce to have a better work life balance and promote well being. The office is geographically located to minimize transportation time for all employees in Denmark. The Rockay team consists of 10 employees: Daniel Pfefferkorn - Founder and CEO, from Denmark
Juliana Proença - CQO, from Brasil
Jana Carlile - Product developer, from the United States
Matt Turner - Creative Director, from England
Mark Winkelmann - Designer, from Denmark
Rikka Sakkinen - Customer Care, from Finland
Vedrana Damjanovic - Digital PR Coordinator, from Serbia
Vlad Schur - Head of PPC, from Ukraine
Hermine Hakobyan - Warehouse Management, from Armenia
Kristin Mansky - Social media management, from the United States.
Christina Fernandez - Social media management, from the United States.
Our Investments
...more
We invest a lot of our money in developing new sustainable technologies in the textile industry. Currently, we are testing many combinations of yarns for our socks. This is to find the perfect combination of performance, sustainability and durability. We invest in lower C02 recycled packaging, natural inks, reuse of scraps from our production, and supporting environmental initiatives that help to clean the oceans. This year, we will donate a percentage of our sales to Oceana, an organization that helps preserve our oceans: 10% of all sales made on Earth Day and 25% of our revenue from Black Friday through to Cybermonday.
Our Products
...more
We never let profit or money be the primary reason for developing any new products. Satisfying a need for the customer has to be the main motivator for product development. That is why we do not launch a new collection every season. New products are launched, if we see a need we are not fulfilling within our current product range.
Products Tested By Athletes
...more
To make the best sportswear in the world, we base our production on field testing - meaning we test our products extensively with the help of our Rockay professional Athletes. This enables continued feedback and development in our design process. The important thing is: We never launch a product we would not consider wearing ourselves!
Our Transparency
...more
To ensure full transparency of our manufacturing, textile, recycling, and labor treatment, we’re proud to share that our manufacturer and production plant are both certified in accordance with:
image GOTS - Global Organic Textile Standard;
image GRS – Global Recycled Standard;
image ISO 9001:2015 – Quality management system Standard.
Our Material In Detail
...more
We’re extremely particular about the material that we use. It’s a subject of constant innovation and research at Rockay. In our first collection, we used Merino wool. For performance socks, Merino wool, when combined with nylon, proved to lack the durability a performance sock needs. With durability in mind, we switched to 100% regenerated nylon yarn, which is known for its extreme durability and stretchiness. Furthermore, we use the Q-Nova recycled polyamide as our 100% recycled elastic yarn. Our socks also contain recycled polyamide with less filaments, which ensures our socks are not slippery. Future collaborations for our Apparel collection, include working with SEAQUAL.
Transport Of Our Products
...more
We have multiple warehouses in different continents, as our goal is to deliver the products from the warehouse located closest to our customer. This way, we can eliminate extra miles of transportation, saving energy, time, and most importantly, reducing air pollution. As for the transportation of our supply chain recycled materials, they all have a valid Transaction Certificate (TC), issued by an approved CB.
Our Labor Treatment & Social Criteria
...more
We chose our trusted partners in recycling and manufacturing who practice fair labor treatment and respect the GOTS and GRS requirements. It’s of vital importance to us that our products are manufactured in an ethical and humane environment, with respect and care for all workers. According to the GOTS certificate, our partners respect the following:
  • Employment is freely chosen;
  • Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected;
  • Child labour must not be used;
  • No discrimination is practised;
  • Working conditions are safe and hygenic;
  • Fair remuneration;
  • Working hours are not excessive;
  • No precarious employment is provided;
  • Harsh or inhumane treatment is prohibited;
  • Social Compliance management;
  • Ethical Business Behaviour.
Our Environmental And Chemical Regulations
...more
Both environmental and chemical regulations, along with record keeping, are outlined by the Global Recycled Standard (GRS), and our partners obtain regular certification. With this in mind, we monitor and meet all relevant legal requirements related to:
  • Energy use
  • Water use
  • Wastewater / Effluent
  • Emissions to Air
  • Waste Management
Similarly, we take care of the chemical regulations. Some of the main criteria include:
  1. Exclusion of inherently problematic substances that are classified as dangerous to human health and/or to the environment by REACH.
  2. Exclusion of substances and mixtures classified with particular hazard codes or risk phrases.
  3. Exclusion of substances that do not comply with ZDHC’s Manufacturer’s Restricted Substance List.
How Our Factories Operate
...more
All our factories are certified in accordance with ISO 9001:2015 – Quality Management System (QMS) Standard. It defines the management and operations inside the factory. The certificate requires documentation information, planning and determining process interactions. Some other requirements include:
  • Management of resources, including human resources and an organization’s work environment;
  • Product realization, all the way from design to delivery;
  • Measurement, analysis, and improvement of the QMS through activities like internal audits, as well as corrective and preventive action.
The latest 2015 standard added extra updates to keep up with the changing environments in which organizations operate, such as the introduction of new terminology, increased leadership requirements, restructuring some of the information, a new focus on risk-based thinking to intensify the application of the process approach.
