Sri Lanka’s leading socks manufacturer and marketer Kandurata Umbrella Industries (Pvt.) Ltd is leading the way among all the Lankan manufacturers who contribute to the country’s economy.
The unique Kandurata socks range for schoolchildren has already made their presence felt and more than 60 percent of schoolchildren in the country use Kandurata socks, a fact which is unknown to many.
The special range of Kandurata socks for schoolchildren is manufactured at their state-of-the art production complex situated in Kadugannawa, under the highest standards, using quality raw materials which are health conscious.
The socks are specially designed for active youngsters therefore cause no inconvenience when wearing for long hours. The rib area of the socks are specially designed to give a perfect and long-lasting fit while most of the other socks in the market tend to fall down due to excessive usage.
In addition to the conventional plain socks, Kandurata has introduced socks with grey or black coloured soles which helps hide the dirt when worn without shoes. According to Kandurata reports, this costs extra money for Kandurata, yet it continues to provide the best socks in the market, not just concentrating on profits.
In addition to the ordinary mass-production procedure, they also manufacture customized socks to meet requests made by certain schools, using school colours and patterns. These specially made socks manufactured at Kandurata plants are currently used in over 200 schools islandwide and this trend is growing rapidly.
In addition to this special schools-socks range, Kandurata also manufactures a special type of socks made for health purposes, made of a special mixture, with bamboo pulp being a major ingredient. A wide range of cotton and nylon socks is manufactured under the Kandurata brand, for ladies, gents, sports, casual, children, school children and nurses.
Displacing the market share of imported low-quality socks, Kandurata socks have already made an impact, both locally and internationally, contributing to the country’s economy while maintaining the ‘class’ of a truly Sri Lankan brand.
