“Life’s too short for matching socks.” FALL 2019


we make living things. They are full of love and warmth and character. They’re here to hug that most neglected part of your body, reminding you to pay attention to the little details that so often matter most. Over time, they will become a part of you, as you become a part of them. Like an old friend or a rescue pet inseparable. This is our promise. When a pair of Solmate Socks finds you, know that you will make each other happy for a very, very long time. Forever even.

we want to leave the earth a little

better than we found it.

Making clothes is a dirty business. Textile manufacturing produces 10% of the world’s CO2 and 100 million tons of trash each year. We can do better. Which is why everything at Solmate Socks is made from recycled materials. We salvage scraps that would otherwise end up in landfills, respinning them into yarn, without dyes or chemicals. We throw nothing away.

Cotton is sourced from fabric waste found all over the world

Socks are knit at our own mill in Hickory, North Carolina

Fibers are respun into new yarns used for our comfy socks

Waste is comprised of production scraps and used clothing

Materials are cut into small pieces and shredded

Because when you believe that what you make will last long into the future, you first make sure there is a future. 5

the

right pair of socks

should inspire you.

In the beginning, when Solmate was not more than a dream, our artist friends said: Go for it. “We don’t know how,” we said. And they replied: We don’t either. You have to take chances. You have to try to do the thing that calls to you and yet doesn’t seem possible. Because when you embrace uncertainty, the universe makes space for you to create something no one’s ever seen before. Our socks can remind you of that. Our socks can be your muse.
