Fun Socks - San Diego, CA
Solmate Socks was started in the year 2000 by Marianne Wakerlin with the simple idea that "Life's too short for matching socks." As a lifelong textile artist with a wonderful eye for design and keen instinct for business, she knew there was a market for beautifully crafted, mismatched socks made right here in America.
The company quickly grew out of a small room in her house to three different offices in the US and the UK. Solmate Socks' product line also expanded to include hats, gloves and scarves in addition to mismatched, colorful socks.
After 15 years, Marianne retired and her son Randy and daughter-in-law, Lisa, are the new owners. They are both firmly committed to keeping Solmate Socks an eco-friendly, American-made company with a focus on developing fresh designs and products and an emphasis on supporting local businesses.
