Picture this:

You’re rushing to get your kids out of the house. You’re already late. You cannot be late again.

It’s taken forever (as usual), but everyone’s finally dressed. Last step: shoes. First shoe goes on without a hitch. Just one more and you’ll be on your way.

Maybe you’ll be on time after all. You grab that final shoe and… one bare foot. Ugh. Where is that other sock?

Now you’re definitely going to be late.

You frantically turn your house upside down looking for it. No luck. You try a mismatched pair. Doesn’t look right. Alright then — no socks it is.

Sound familiar? For our founder, Melita Cyril, that was a regular thing — whether it was due to losing socks in the laundry or her son kicking them off. Like any mom, she was constantly out of time and in a rush.

One evening, after lost socks had her running late to yet another dinner party, it hit her: What if there were socks that looked good together even when they don’t match?

The thought kept her up all night. Soon after, Q for Quinn was born. 

THE SOCKS

Thoughtfully designed in Toronto, our socks are gender neutral and made to be mismatched.

Through fun, bold prints with compatible patterns and colour schemes, our styles look like they match even when they don’t.

The result?

You spend a lot less time looking for socks…

…and your child has the freedom to mix and match patterns, giving them an opportunity to explore their uniqueness, embrace their individuality, and create a style of their own.  

Q for Quinn socks are made with certified organic combed cotton and seamless toes for total comfort, no matter how adventurous those little feet get.

Every collection comes with 3 pairs of socks for 9 possible pairings and plenty of fun opportunities to learn about patterns.

THE BOOKS

Your kids should love the clothes they wear. They should be excited to get dressed in the morning; excited to wear their favorite clothes. But while most kids have a favorite t-shirt or favorite pair of pants — socks are often left a little unloved.

That’s why we wrote Quinn’s Socks: an illustrated children’s book starring your child’s new favorite socks.

The book — which features socks identical to the ones we make – highlights opportunities to learn about patterns, diversity, and sharing with friends.​

Quinn's Socks is the first of many books that tell the story behind our patterns and offer plentiful learning opportunities for kids that live in diverse communities.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe in giving back

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to learn. We have partnered with local organizations to donate socks, books and cash to support the most vulnerable children in our communities. 

Organizations we have donated to include: The New Mom Project and The Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights.

We believe in celebrating diversity and individuality

Our products are inspired by our stories.  Growing up in Sri Lanka, our founder Melita played cricket every day in the street she shared with her neighbor. When it rained, they’d play in the narrow hallway of her small apartment. Now her family lives in Toronto, and those memories have become part of a story that’s uniquely hers. Just like yours, really.

Our way of thinking is deeply influenced by the inclusive culture of Canada and the diversity of stories we’ve encountered here. That’s why our socks incorporate patterns depicting Canadian sports like hockey and international sports like cricket, with the freedom to mix them to match your story.

We believe in safe, sustainable and ethical manufacturing

All of our socks are made with GOTS certified organic cotton, to ensure our children get the purest form of fabric against their very sensitive skin, and that our farmers and planet are cared for.

Every pair we ship is ethically made in facilities that are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified. In plain English, that means we do our very best to ensure they’re free of harmful chemicals (down to the very last thread).

And to make sure our manufacturers treat their workers fairly, we often visit them in person. Fortunately, that’s easy to do: our socks are lovingly made in Sri Lanka, where our founder is from.
