The brand Kappa was created by accident. Back in 1956, a brand named Aquila had sold and distributed a faulty batch of socks to its retailers. Customers were, of course, disappointed and the socks were returned to the manufacturer.
The successive patches went through a quality control and the brand wanted to demonstrate this by marking the boxes with ”K” and the caption ”KONTROLL”. These socks were a success and a new brand was born.
Sixty years later, Kappa goes back to its roots by launching Kappa Kontroll, acknowledging the past with a new street-minded perspective.
