- prevent the formation of mould
- have a comfortable hem
- suitable for men and women
- made of 71% organic cotton
Why do socks contain silver nanoparticles?
Silver nanoparticles can now be found in antibacterial products, industrial production, catalysis, household products and consumer goods. A very popular use is in sportswear, as silver nanoparticles help eliminate odours.
However, their use can also be found in medical products, optical sensors, cosmetics, paint production, pharmaceuticals, food, diagnostics and cancer treatment.
These are silver particles ranging in size from about 1 to 100 nanometres. The most common are spherical, but they also come in other shapes. They are not usually made up of silver alone, but often also contain a relatively large percentage of silver oxide, which is formed by oxidation on the relatively large surface of the nanoparticles. The silver contained in nanosilver socks serves to prevent and help eliminate fungus, mycoses and eczema.
The silver molecules are firmly attached to the polyester fibres. Silver is known for its antibacterial properties - it eliminates bacteria produced in sweat that are the source of odor. Once the socks are dry, they do not smell. However, this process is not endless. After the first few uses, the odor is suppressed, but after multiple uses, the odor may appear. Therefore, these materials also need to be washed. However, compared to conventional socks, the intensity of the odour is incomparably lower, as is the speed of its onset.
High quality European socks
The European brand Nanosilver® specializes in the production of quality socks that last and are suitable even for top athletes. They use silver nanoparticles in their socks, which give the socks an antibacterial and anti-odor effect.
Who are the silver socks for?
for managers, administrative and cultural workers, sales representatives
- 55% Cotton
- 18% polyester (antibacterial nanosilver® fibre
- 1% Polyamide
- 1% Polypropylene
- 15% Elastane
- 10% Optex®
Cotton - freshness, breathability and eco-origin
It is added to approximately 50% of the textiles produced. It has good tensile and abrasion strength, which even increases by about 20% when wet. It is therefore used to advantage, particularly on products that are subject to stress and have to be washed frequently. The products have a pleasant feel and can absorb a considerable amount of moisture, such as sweat.

Polyamide - strength and durability
The excellent properties of polyamide include high dry and wet strength, high abrasion resistance, high elasticity, low specific gravity, large specific volume, very easy to maintain (washing, drying) and more. It is mainly used for hosiery and sportswear. Each washing increases the durability of polyamide fabrics or knits. Any symptoms of hypersensitivity of human skin when wearing polyamide products are not caused by the properties of the fibre but by dyes, detergent residues, etc.
Polypropylene - water repellency and thermal insulation
The properties of polypropylene - PP - are now generally known: absolute water repellency, strong thermal insulation, light weight. Polypropylene's properties, which are used for the production of functional sportswear, are superior to any other synthetic fibre.
Optex® is a trademark of a European company.
It is an elastic fibre, with excellent properties, which is most often used in the hem of socks, elastic bandages over the ankle and foot, but also in the whole sock part. It is not used alone, but always as a blend with other fibres of all kinds.
Lycra® - elasticity and pliability
Gives the material greater elasticity (pliability) and elasticity. The stretch of these fibres reaches up to eight times the length.
Maintenance and washing
Nanosilver® requires no special treatment. We recommend a washing temperature of 40°C and the following gentle washing aids, for example. The laundry does not need to be ironed or chemically treated afterwards. Dry up to 60°C.
In order to maintain the functionality of nanosilver® technology, we do not recommend the use of fabric softener. The fabric softener forms a thin film on the fibres, which creates a barrier between the direct contact of the skin and the material. The silver molecules need to be in direct contact with the skin for perfect effectiveness.
However, if you happen to treat the linen with fabric softener by mistake, no problem, the functional properties of the linen will not be lost. This film will be lost in the next wash.
Customers are advised of possible negative reactions and damage to the material of nanosilver clothing by aggressive components of sweat, anti-perspirants and pre- and post-sun creams. For example, anti-perspirants containing DEET can dissolve synthetic fibres, including PES.
Nanosilver® is a product brand of Nanotrade, one of the largest Czech sellers of nanotechnology goods. The nanosilver brand also includes functional clothing, including socks.
How do Nanosilver products work?
Nanosilver brand socks are enriched with silver nanoparticles that actively eliminate bacteria and other microorganisms. This prevents their further reproduction and fights against the smell.
