Dear friends, let me introduce you toady, the flagship market of Yiwu - Yiwu Socks Market. Here we go:

Yiwu Socks Market is a must-see if you visit Yiwu, even you do not have socks on your sourcing list. You are going to know why after finish reading this short article.

Firstly, let's have a big picture of Yiwu socks producers.

Over half of the socks in the world are produced by Yiwu and its close neighbor - Zhuji, which is one hour ride away.

So if you have 10 socks in your wardrobe, most probably, 5 of them are produced and shipped out from here.

One single socks producer in Yiwu can produce 1.8 million pair of socks per day.

I don't know what the population of your city is. You can calculate how many days should this producer work to make each your people a pair of socks.

The world biggest 5 socks producers are all located in Yiwu. One of them is even the exclusive supplier for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. That's the first socks exclusive supplier in Olympic history.

They are also an official partner of NBA.

The world best socks machines like Lonati, Sangiacomo, Matec, Brothers are all put inside their workshops.

So not all of these factories are family owned small ones, many of them are the suppliers for brands like Gold Toe, Puma, Nike, Addidas, and Kettenbach.

With such a supplier base, Yiwu socks market is definitely the most important socks market in the world.

You can expect to see the most types of socks inside over 3,000 stalls here: socks for infants, socks for toddlers, socks for teenagers, socks for grannies.

And you can also find special socks for firefighters, socks for NBA stars.

Ladies are always the main targets for socks producers , and here are plenty of socks for ladies who want to be bloody sexy, in daytime or in nights.

Prices are not all cheap. You can find socks of a few cents, but you can also find some wholesale prices are up to 10 US dollars.

It's hard to find non-brands socks inside the market nowadays as most of the suppliers had their own brands and trademarks registered, which is very much unlike other markets in Yiwu.

Some socks makers here are the suppliers for world top brands like Puma and Gold toe, and some others are the suppliers for retailers like Wal-Mart and Kmart. So you may also trust them on their quality.

The strong suppliers all have certificates like CSCC, WRAP and M/S.

One interesting story happened a few years ago went like this:

When Tung Chee-hwa, the Chief Executive of HK, was visiting one Yiwu socks factory, the receptionists noticed his Gold Toe socks were made right by their factory.

That pair of Gold Toe socks were actually a gift bought by Tung Chee-hwa's son in America and brought back to HK a few days ago! From this story, we can know that Yiwu is actually manufacturing for the world top brand socks.

The overall shopping environment here is also very comfortable, much the same level as some of the best shopping malls in your downtown area, although this is just a socks wholesale market.
