One of the funnest things we get to do at Friday Sock Co is collaborate with rad business owners to create one-of-a-kind mismatched socks. If you have ever seen our AvoCuddle socks - this was the result of one such special partnership.
Queenie Best - (Shop owner of Queenie's Cards in Toronto, ON) is the original creator of the uber-well-known design, the ‘Avo Cuddle’. We bet you have seen it on products such as cards, pillows, shirts etc, but never socks...until now.
We chatted with Queenie to get some behind-the-scenes information about the famous design that now lives on Friday Socks.
Here we go…
Queenie - you are behind the design for the Avocuddle. Can you tell us how you came up with it?
I was making guacamole in the kitchen and it just came to me!
You have this design within your brand and on a lot of other products - what made you think of having it on socks?
I love working with Adam and I love Friday Sock Co! I first ordered for my retail shop back in the spring of 2017 and they always do so well, I thought having my design on socks would be the perfect fit - ha!
You could have had your design on matching socks - what made you want to work with Friday Sock Co and have them mismatched?
I actually adore mismatched socks! In high school I thought wearing different socks was the coolest thing and I still switch up my coloured socks to this day just because it's fun. Now I get to wear my own designs!
Have you had any feedback from customers that have bought your 'Let's Avocuddle' socks that you can share with us?
Absolutely! Everyone loves them! We love hearing the giggles and seeing the smiles when the socks catches customers' eyes. They're great for gifts and a treat for yourself. I'm already thinking about the next design to make!
As you can see - Queenie really does put her heart and quest for fun into everything she does, which makes her the perfect person for Friday Sock Co to Avocuddle with.
