Coffee aroma socks to hit the US

A Boston-based company has received funding to help it develop and manufacturer a range of coffee-scented socks.

Ministry of Supply (MOS) has managed to raise over $200,000 in crowd source funding to make socks that help to reduce sweat and odour.

The designers, all who are former students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), have blended carbonised coffee into a mix of different fibres to make the socks, which they claim absorbs "stink molecules".

However, Ministry of Supply still say that the socks have to be washed regularly to help them maintain their freshness.

"Odour control is difficult in socks. As such, we turned to nature to find an effective way to create a fresher sock, leading us to coffee," the team said.

The socks took eight months to develop in a laboratory, but are now ready for commercial production.

The MOS team says it takes 16 coffee beans in total to make a pair of these socks.
