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 internationally. Solmate Socks' product line also expanded to include hats, mittens, and scarves in addition to mismatched, colorful socks.
When Marianne retired in 2015, her son, Randy, and daughter-in-law, Lisa, dedicated themselves to carrying on the family tradition of creating highly coveted, treasured works of art that can be worn on your own two feet.
Crafting mismatched (but coordinated) socks with a hand-knit feel is our specialty. We are committed to using sustainably-sourced, eco-friendly fibers in every product we make, allowing you to embrace your individuality without compromising your earth-friendly principles. Whether showing off our socks loud and proud or styling them from the comfort of your home, we encourage everyone to express their individuality in whatever ways they can.
