Wearable Art

Each Sweet & Wee Marcel socks are hand drawn designs & featured as ‘wearable art’. Once a design sells out, it’s gone forever—but makes way for a new one to take its place. The Polly Black Design is now sold out, but due to it’s popularity & many request to bring it back, it will return in 7 weeks in a few different colors. Please feel free to email color suggestions via the Sweet Marcel web site!

Created from a cotton blend, these fun socks will provide softness, comfort, flexibility, & style.  All knee high socks are MADE IN THE USA.  The over the knee, anklet, & baby socks are made at an ethically certified family owned mill in central Turkey.

Ethically Certified Production

As the knee high sock designs are produced locally in the US, the over the knee, anklet, & baby sock designs are produced at a family owned ethically certified mill in central Turkey.   I visit the mill in Turkey during each sock production.  I couldn’t be happier with the production from this family owned mill, not to mention their hospitality during my visits & attention to detail on all my unique sock designs.  Please check back for other updates regarding my visits to Turkey & happenings at the mill.  Meanwhile, I wanted to share a picture of one of my Turkish Associates, along with his father, hand steaming the Heidi Sock Design for perfect sizing.

Made in the USA – unique sock designs

Looking for a locally made product? All of Sweet Marcel Knee high sock designs are made locally in the USA from local cotton as well!!! Each sock design is sold with a vintage mini hanger to cool to not keep!

Sweet Marcel around the country and globe

Sweet Marcel designs are globally inspired, unique socks that are considered “wearable art”.  From the colors, to the motifs, Sweet Marcel is an eclectic assortment of cultural influences. The Cecilia design is inspired by the bright colors of the Mexican culture, while the Julia is reminiscent of romantic gardens in New Orleans.

Design inspiration comes from all facets of life and we are so excited to see where our research takes us next.  In addition, we are thrilled to be expanding across the globe to stores in Australia and New Zealand! We wanted to give a shout out to our newest client in New York, NY, AHAlife! They will be launching our Sweet Marcel and Wee Marcel lines on their website within the next couple of weeks, so keep a lookout!

Mix up your colors!

What’s up Sock Talk!

Today’s post is all about mixing and matching funky colors. Here at Sweet Marcel we are all about fusing colors that you have never seen together before. Whether subconsciously or by coincidence I showed up to work today wearing a similar color combination found in the pink Christy knee sock, a beautiful blend of dark pink, deep purple, peach, mustard and vibrant orange. So don’t be afraid to experiment with color, embrace the bright and daring hues!

Summer Sock Fun

Hello Sock Talk!

This is Melanie, the newest summer intern hired onto the Sweet Marcel team and I could not be more excited!

It is a beautiful, sunny New Mexico morning and I am rockin’ the Nellie sock from the Sweet Marcel anklet collection under my cotton Mary Jane flats. Also called crew or quarter socks, anklets are perfect for summer wardrobes. Pair these vibrant and quirky socks with a pair of jean shorts and a neutral white top as your pop of summer color!
