Arturo Stories began from the creative minds of Marta Taronna and Sarah Parisi. The designers, based near Rome, Italy, have experience working for other brands, but have decided to devote themselves to socks – their great passion. All the socks are produced in the Brescia district, with the cotton being sourced from BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) & Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex certified cotton in Egypt and then processed and finalised in Italy.
The Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex label, or certification, means that you can be certain that every component of the product has been tested for harmful substances and is thus harmless for human health. BCI Members have committed to sustainable cotton production. The BCI logo on packaging, does not mean the product is made of physically traceable Better Cotton, however it means that you’re buying a majority cotton product, from a retailer or brand that is committed to sourcing Better Cotton and investing in BCI Farmers.
