Happy Socks Turn everyday essential into a masterpiece

by Karmaloop Rep Code

Happy Socks started one cloudy spring day in Sweden in April 2008. Long-time friends Viktor Tell and Mikael Söderlindh had a vision to spread happiness by turning an everyday essential into a colorful design piece. They set a rigid standard of quality, craftsmanship, and creativity so that their socks are not only pleasing to the eyes but to the feet as well.

Inspired by colorful, playful patterns and designs, Happy Socks goes by the motto “all play, no work” – reshaping a simple and overlooked product into a fun, creative, expressive success story. Happy Socks offers a large selection of unisex socks as well as tights and over-the-knee styles for women.

SocksHappy quality

Happy Socks are made of high-quality combed cotton. Stronger, softer combed cotton makes Happy Socks super comfortable while a reinforced toe and heel prevents them from easily tearing. All socks can be machine-washed without risk of fading.

Happy Socks are manufactured in Turkey at a family-owned factory that has been in the business for more than 30 years. Two rigorous tests, one during production and one before shipping, help ensure the highest quality possible. Each sock goes through additional silicon washing, so it feels better on your skin and won’t shrink when washed.

Happy Socks tights are manufactured in Italy, where production is famously renowned for its high standard in quality.

Happy designs

Colorful socks have recently become popular among the fashion-conscious. With the ability to create seemingly unlimited combinations, these socks with character open up new and exciting fashion possibilities.

In a world of black, gray, and blue dress socks, fashion socks stand out from the crowd. Happy Socks come in checked, striped, dotted, camouflage, and any other design you can think of. Wear them with jeans, white tees, sneakers, or even a tuxedo. Happy Socks are available in a variety of heights: ankle, mid-calf, and over the calf. While traditional dress socks are notorious for slipping down the leg, Happy Socks are fitted with elastics to eliminate this sock-pull problem.

The latest collection from Happy Socks, Chapter #FOUR, is built in a new way – better yarns, more advanced sock knowledge, and in a new factory. Happy Socks releases a new collection every year with three seasonal drops. If you want to know more information about this products see here.
