Beautiful prints on beautiful socks.
I have always loved textiles, images and prints. I went to art school in Vancouver, Canada, and in 2010 I had a desire for beautiful patterned socks. I wanted to make amazing and weird prints ---- and I wanted to see them on peoples feet.
It took many months and countless hours of research and testing before I found a method that worked for creating them. This is when Strathcona Stockings first came to be. (Shortly after, I launched this etsy store in early 2011). The next year Strathcona launched a collection of printed socks at a trade show in Paris. And things have continued on their crazy path since, with the launch of dozens of new prints and quite a number of new products.
I am always creating and experimenting with new prints and new ideas.
I would say -- with some pride that I was among the first people to make printed socks! It was unchartered territories when I started.
