Burlington has always been popular because of the traditional argyle, the diamond pattern with overcheck. But where does it have its origins? The Burlington brand has its roots in Scotland: More specifically, it originates from Scottish clans of the early 18th century. As a distinctive mark, they had tartans with a certain colour sequence. The Campbell Clan, for example, could be identified by its so-called Black Watch tartan. This pattern is the ancestor of the Burlington Argyle. Our original Argyle socks can be recognised by the typical Burlington clip.
Today, Burlington is known not only for the Argyle socks, but presents the diamond pattern in many interpretations. This variety of patterns is coupled with surprising colour variations, which together make for an expressive, modern look. Burlington has been an independent brand of the Falke Group since 2008. With its creativity, it addresses people with a young lifestyle who want to express their individuality. Thanks to the one-size-fits-all concept, the Burlington socks are also perfect gifts.
