Corgi was established in 1892 in the Welsh Amman valley, in the UK. We enjoy a worldwide reputation for making hand knitted socks and fine cashmere knitwear using luxury yarns and traditional methods of manufacture, with a high proportion of hand making or hand finishing. All our products are made at our factory in Wales. In addition to the selection available on this website, Corgi products are sold at many of the world's finest stores, including Selfridges and Harrods in the UK, Barney's, J Crew and Bergdorf Goodman in the USA, Harry Rosen in Canada and Wako and other luxury stores in Japan,

CASHMERE AND PURE WOOL PRODUCTS
Please note that pure cashmere and pure wool socks are made with fine luxury yarns that by their nature are not hard wearing. We recommend our pure cashmere socks are used as house socks or worn only in well fitting shoes. In loose fitting shoes, or shoes with exposed nails, the fibers are easily damaged and holes can appear very quickly. If treated properly you should get good wear from your Corgi socks.
If you return an item you are not pleased with, or which is faulty, or which has been damaged in transit, the item must be returned to us in its original condition.
As stated above, we guarantee your satisfaction, though you should note that for reasons of health and hygiene, we are unable to accept returns of socks unless they are returned unworn and fully packaged.
• Genuinely faulty merchandise will be credited in full for the item as well as original post and packaging charges.
• All merchandise returned must be accompanied with the original packing note.
• Please ensure you use a secure and reliable method to return your purchase.
The parcel is your responsibility until it reaches the Corgi warehouse in Wales.
It is increasingly important for us to continuously review the activities we undertake, against criteria focused on protection of the environment.
Demand from consumers worldwide for quality knitted accessories fits neatly with the need to utilize renewable natural resources (such as cotton, wool and cashmere yarn), rather than deplete finite ones. It also provides essential employment and capital for both third world and developed economies.
Almost all the yarns we use are natural fibres such as cotton, wool and cashmere. We always purchase these from high quality manufacturers based in either the UK or Italy. Where we use nylon in some processes, this is sourced from within the UK.
All yarn waste is stored and collected weekly by a local charity for distribution to clubs, schools and charities for use in art projects etc. All plastic, cardboard and paper waste is collected by a local recycling company, with the result we send zero waste to landfill.
We have had the factory completely re-wired in recent years, and have also had new lighting installed to cut power usage. We have installed an efficient new boiler and heating system, again to reduce our energy consumption. As we are dealing with natural fibres we do not use any harmful chemicals on the site.
We have tried to reduce our paper usage to a minimum, no longer sending correspondence by paper, but whenever possible sending it electronically. We no longer send out paper invoices and statements but instead use e-mail. We keep the printing of catalogues and promotional materials to an absolute minimum, and use electronic media to circulate our new designs to our sales agents and customers.
Sustainability and environmental issues are handled directly by the joint Managing Directors, Chris Jones and Lisa Wood, and are integral in every process and decision within the business.
Looking after the needs of our cstomers is our primary concern. On the rare occasions where there might be a problem with an incorrect dispatched order or the merchandise is damaged or faulty, please contact us immediately at our customer service department. We promise a speedy response with friendly and helpful service from the customer service team.
