Shallow

最近這幾年,冰川融化、海平面上升、地球引力場改變,全球各地鯨類擱淺的頻率和規模都超越以往,當然由於救援難度過大,倖存在沙灘上的鯨魚最終都得被安樂死。

事實上集體性的鯨魚擱淺始終是個迷,科學家曾陸續提出過很多概念與假設, 其中最讓人信服的理論指向全球暖化,尤其是海洋暖化造成的影響。

隨著海水溫度的升高,鯨群捕食範圍發生變化,讓它們不得不前往不熟悉的海域進行捕食,導致大規模擱淺變得密集,而我們現在看到的現象極有可能是後續一系列連鎖反應的開端。

FLIPPOS 秉持著宣導環保以及愛惜生命的理念,含淚創作出「Shallow血色海灘」。

以鯨魚為主角,環繞著魚群與海豚在海洋中自在的游著,透過不同層次的織襪層, 讓海浪看起來更栩栩如生,但銀灰色調卻顯現出淡淡的哀愁, 彷彿透露出因為人類的自私,讓大自然生態變了調, 因此我們讓襪子翻轉後,鯨魚與海豚就成了一堆白骨, 希望藉由這樣的設計宣導守護海洋,保護地球的精神。

Glaciers have melted, sea levels have risen, and the earth's gravitational field has changed in recent years. Whale stranding happens frequently and massively. The whales that survived on the beach had to be euthanized eventually due to the difficulty upon rescue.

In fact, massive whale stranding phenomenon has still remained mysteriously. Scientists continuously issued many concepts and hypotheses, in which the most convincing theory is global warming, especially the impact to the ocean.

With the risen of sea temperature, the predation area of whales has changed. Whales have to hunt in unfamiliar areas. The large-scaled stranding phenomenon happens intensively. What is visible now is most likely the beginning of sequent chain reactions.

FLIPPOS possess the concepts of advocating environmental protection and cherishing life upon creating ‘Shallow Blood Cove’ with tears.

Whales are the main characters of our design, swimming freely with fish and dolphins in the ocean. We make the wave look vividly through different layers of knitting with silver-gray tone showing slight sorrow. It hints that the nature ecology has been altered due to human selfishness. The whales and dolphins became a pile of bones when the hosiery is folded. We hope to propaganda the spirits of guarding the ocean and protecting the earth through this design.

WHY FLIPPOS?

The original idea of FLIPPOS hosiery is to create a pair of compression stocking fulfilling functions in every way. You could wear it to the office and exercise after work as well. Simply with ONE SAME pair of stocking.

Considering that most people either sit or stand for a long time for work in which cause the fatigue condition upon feet and calf, we develop our hosiery to apply ‘graduated compression’ from the sole of the foot to calf to improve this situation.

Additionally, wearing FLIPPOS during exercise could reduce muscle vibration effectively, produce greater strength, and improve the speed of fatigue recovery after exercising.

Flip the length, flip the attitude.

In order to cater for any occasion and any outfit, FLIPPOS creates the first compression hosiery that can be folded. You could wear it knee-high or fold it to the calf. The item can be transformed into socks within seconds.

★Length BEFORE flipping: Knee-High
★Length AFTER flipping: 18cm above ankle

FLIPPOS hosiery

The compression levels of FLIPPOS products are within 15-25mmHG, which is within the common daily usage grade. FLIPPOS is NOT a medical product, therefore a medical certification is not required.

FLIPPOS hosiery – The touch of similar to Egyptian cotton & silver fiber

The main material of the hosiery is tech nylon mixed with lycra yarn. In addition to that this material is four times more expensive than ordinary combed cotton, the main functions are quick moisture wicking and the touch of similar to Egyptian cotton. On top of that, silver fiber deodorizing technology has been added to the sole of stocking. The effect will NOT be reduced due to either the number of times being washed or however long the products has been bought.

85% Tech Nylon
7% Lycra
4% Cotton
2% Spandex
2% Silver Fiber silver ion/ deodorization

Common Problems with Socks

  • The sagging issues.
    Socks fall down easily due to the following reasons:
    1. Mostly made of cotton.
    2. The quality of spandex is likely to be poor.
    3. Storage method.
    4. Laundry and drying method.
  • Dull Design
    If the patterns on hosiery is too complicated, it causes uneven thickness of the stocking and unstable compression levels easily. Therefore, most of the compression hosieries on the market use boring and simple designs.
  • Lint balls
    The socks on the market are mostly made of pure cotton. It encounters linting problems on the sole of the socks after rubbing and washing.
  • Worn out
    Poor quality of socks and incorrect walking posture can easily cause your socks worn out.
  • Without Seamless Garment technology
    There is an opening at the joint between the toe and the instep of a sock after it’s being knitted. The joint has to be knitted together before being worn.
    This knitting action is called ‘Seamless garment technology’. Press and check out the thickness of the sock after knitting. The smoother the sock is, the more comfortable you’ll feel when you wear it.

The biggest differences of FLIPPOS and common socks.

Size Chart

Please refer to the size chart below (the unit in the chart is in centimeters) and the description pictures to select the correct stocking size. If you still have questions, you are always welcomed to contact us directly, thank you.

The following specs of size chart are all measured when the product is not stretched. Each pair of compression hosiery will have slightly different compression levels and elasticity due to different patterns.

If you have wide calf circumference, we recommend you to wear one size larger, which will be more comfortable and foot-shaped.

1. Cuff Width

2. Calf Circumference

3. Leg Length

4. Foot Length

5. Fold Length

DREAM OF FLIPPOS

All the patterns of FLIPPOS are made with extremely complex designs. Such as the red leaf totem, inheriting the spirit of Bunun tribe, the sacred and dominant central mountain range, and the tame kangaroo in the desert. FLIPPOS does not only bravely challenge the limit of sock-knitting technique, as if you could call the products art collections.

The most important part is that we must overcome the problem of uneven compression levels, making the development process extremely difficult and much time has taken. Luckily, we have outstanding Taiwanese manufacturers who are willing to collaborate with FLIPPOS for more than a year to create hosiery products which could be promoted worldwide. We cooperate together to bring Taiwan to the world and to bring the world back to Taiwan.

WEARING

FLIPPOS recommend you to use the correct method to wear compression socks to maintain the use life.

1. Flip the sock body part to at least ankle area.

2. Put your foot into the compression sock and align the heel with sock heel.

3. Final Step, pull up and flip the sock til the bottom of the knee.

CLEANING
Image

WASHING

  • Should do a proper cleaning as soon as possible after used.
  • We recommended that the best washing method is hand washing which could extend the use life for the products.
  • We suggest you to use a laundry bag for machine washing for extend the use life and the quality of the product. Please do not rub the socks tightly when hand washing.
  • FLIPPOS recommend to place the socks into a laundry bag when machine washing. The water temperature should be below 30 °C and use a neutral lotion (pH between 6-8).
  • Please do not use bleach, fluorescent whitening agents, clothing softeners and avoid immersion in functional detergents for too long.
  • Avoid powdery detergent, because if the micro-slits on the socks are blocked, it is equivalent to losing some of the function.
  • If you have any doubts about whether your laundry detergent will cause fading, please wash it separately.
  • Please wash the dark and light colors separately and do not soak and dry clean.

DRYING

  • Avoid direct sunlight and dryers.
  • For compression functional products, please use a dry in the shade.
  • In case of high temperature, deformation or shrinkage may occur, so it is not recommended to use high temperature methods such as dryer and hair dryer.
