camano

As the market leader for socks without elastic pressure in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, camano offers perfect products at an excellent price-performance ratio.

Quality

Quality first: No constricting – no slipping! Discover our functional basic products with the built-in "feel good effect".

For the good sock's friends

High-quality socks are true high-performance products! They spend hours in shoes having to cope with friction, impact and extreme conditions while proving their durability day after day.

Moreover, they should be as comfortable as possible to wear – and convincingly good-looking just when they need to.

Comfort in Socks

Consequently our philosophy is: comfort in socks! Our socks satisfy with contemporary designs and their built-in "feel good effect" – without slipping off or constricting the foot.

The secret lies within the unique cuff design which ensures both the foot’s blood circulation and the sock’s perfect fit. Our products are loved by all, particularly active people, as the feet remain in comfort through any activity.

Sounds good? Find your new favourite socks!

History

From Pleinfeld to New York – The story of the sock that travelled the world.

Founded as a family business in Weißenburg in the heart of the Franconian Lake District in 1995, camano stands for high-quality and comfortable socks worldwide and ranks among the largest hosiery manufacturers in Germany today.

Our motto: We do what we do best – and by constantly focusing on socks, stockings and leg wear we have become true experts. Our products have gained a reputation synonymous with high-quality socks all over the world and are exclusive licensees for top brands, such as s.Oliver.

Today, camano maintains more than 100 branches through a shop-in-shop marketing concept, in cities such as Hamburg, Munich, Dusseldorf, Berlin, Antwerp, Vienna and Zurich.

Presumably our orange and grey cuffed socks have already found their way to your home as well!

1995: Foundation of camano

The Moissl family founded camano in Weißenburg in 1995. Due to the owners' experience and enthusiasm for the product, camano has been growing quickly. By 2000 the headquarters were moved to a bigger warehouse in Weißenburg.

2002: camano moves to Pleinfeld

The rapidly expanding company soon reached its warehouse limits. In 2002 the owners decided to build a new modern warehouse in Pleinfeld - a milestone for the young company.

2005: Warehouse capacity doubled

After three years the warehouse capacity was already fully occupied. An extension was added in 2005 and the capacity was doubled. At that time many well know customers and retailers enjoyed camano products and considered camano socks as their favorite ones.

2010: camano wins s.Oliver license

The success of camano was responsible for gaining a new business partner in s.Oliver. Since 2010 camano has been holding the worldwide license rights for the s.Oliver’s hosiery product division. Design, manufacturing and distribution are exclusively down by camano. 

2011: New logistics center

In late 2011, another modern building was established which houses an innovative and IT-based logistics system with a storage capacity for about 1,500 different items. Covering a total of about 6,000 m², everything can be found under the same roof. Nowadays camano dispatches more than 10,000 socks daily.

2015: Afinum and camano

camano has found a new partner in Munich-based financial investor AFINUM. AFINUM has acquired 100% shares of the company camano. “We were looking for a partner with the financial resources and broad network to help us shape our planned growth in the coming years as well as to support us in new projects. We are convinced we have found that partner in AFINUM,” said Thomas Moissl. 

Philosophy

At camano, transparency relates to more than just the texture of our tights.

Quality Assurance

From design through fabrication to delivery: To keep the production as close to the customer as possible, we manufacture most of our products in Europe and directly dispatch them from our distribution centre to our retailers.

All products manufactured for camano and s.Oliver periodically undergo thorough analyses for harmful substances. These tests, conducted by independent companies, are performed in accordance with current statutory provisions and in close cooperation with the quality assurance of s.Oliver.

Community Guidelines

We ensure compliance with social standards. Any enterprise manufacturing for camano must comply with precise environmental and social guidelines. Therefore, all items produced for the brands camano, s.Oliver or private labels are exclusively manufactured in facilities that meet these requirements.

Social Commitment

Happiness is the only thing that doubles when shared. Hence, we support those who need our help the most – in co-operation with various welfare organizations. One of these institutions is wortundtat, a relief organization which supports a variety of medical and social projects in the poorest regions of the world.

Design

Whether timeless classics or high fashion items: camano helps every foot find its suitable sock.

Our design team in Pleinfeld develops several seasonal collections every year, each containing around 120 new articles in various colors and sizes.

Each quarterly collection surprises with a variety of colours, patterns and compositions combined with the guaranteed camano comfort.

Because what good are the most beautiful socks, if you don’t feel comfortable wearing them?
