Sock Soirée is a family-owned small and local business new to the Comox Valley that retails fun, funky, Earth-friendly, high-quality, artistically designed socks.

The business offers crew, knee high, over the knee and tights in vivid patterns, stripes and solids in gentle Earth tones. Sock Soirée specializes in women’s socks but also has excellent outdoor/hiking/expedition men’s styles and a sweet assortment of children’s socks.

Unique socks are made from recycled cotton, natural fibres and quality wool blends of cashmere, alpaca, merino, angora and virgin wools.

The focus is to support independent designers and/or family-based businesses as suppliers with socks made in Canada or the USA. In the near future, Sock Soirée will offer its own designs made in Canada, hopefully B.C.

Sock Soirée events are hosted at local shops to promote and support local business creating a fun, relaxed and different type of shopping environment or experience for those who are purchasing. These events attract and bring all types of people together, creating diversity, creating community while supporting local businesses.

As the business builds and becomes more established, the family looks forward to donating a portion of its proceeds to local and global needs.
