Sock Design Competition


House and Leisure and the Sanlam Investments FoodWineDesign Fair recently announced The Odd Sock project. Together with The Feat Sock Co, we ran a competition that called for original sock designs. During the month of August we accepted submissions and on 2 September 2013, we chose the top entry. We can now announce the winner as Johan Roos. Feat Sock Co will produce this winning design as a limited edition run of socks, which we’ll launch at the Sanlam Investments FoodWineDesign Fair, from 8 - 10 November 2013. Johan Roos' name will be included on the packaging, together with a blurb about him and his inspiration. Three top South African illustrators, namely Lauren Fowler, Nicholas Christowitz and Sindiso 'R!ot' Nyoni, were also commissioned to create socks for the project. If you’re in Joburg in November, be sure to visit the Sanlam Investments FoodWineDesign Fair from 8 - 10 November to pick up your own pair of the winning socks.
