Irish Socksciety, Buzzin (Size UK 8-12)

Sale price€9,50

Buzzin' socks are the winning design of our 2023 edition of Design Your Own Socks Competition designed by the very talented Rachel Rothwell.

Inspiration behind the design:
Bees are fascinating little creatures and I love watching them! My mum has kept bees for years and this piece is inspired by those little critters living at the bottom of her garden in Wexford. They have often featured in my paintings and the idea of seeing them on my feet too has me buzzing!

Rachel Rothwell is an Irish artist based in Zurich. She studied ceramics in Limerick before jetting off to explore the world. She has exhibited across Europe and in South Korea and has been awarded residencies in Ireland and Finland, and completed her MA degree in Geneva in 2019. Rachel is passionate about the environment and enjoys creating playful doodles that celebrate our planet, using a mix of inks, found materials and digital tools to bring her scenes to life. She explores themes of community, modern life and the environment in her work. She currently works at a local art gallery in the city centre, and when she’s not there she can be found enjoying the lake or sketching in the park!

Our part for the planet 

We’re well aware of the impact that consumer purchasing decisions can have on the environment. As a retailer, we feel our highest responsibility is to ensure that we’re taking measures to minimize our impact, and the impact of our customers' purchases, on the environment. 

Here are some of the ways we plan to play our part for the planet: 

  • Sustainable packaging 
  • Re-use of cardboard and brown paper received from suppliers in customer orders 
  • Continuously educate our team about the environmental crisis and explore ways that we can use our business to help 
  • Deal primarily with Irish suppliers to minimize our carbon footprint 
  • Aiming to be plastic free

Who we are

Quinlans was started by Brigin and John P Quinlan in Macroom, County Cork. We’ve had some fantastic people join our team over the years, and any success that we’ve had is as much theirs as it is ours. Our current team is small and we pride ourselves on cultivating a culture where people can be themselves at work, feel safe and appreciated, and have an opportunity to continuously learn and develop.

Quinlans want to offer you an enjoyable and memorable experience when choosing a special gift for you or a loved one

There’s something special about seeing a person master his or her craft. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the most talented Irish and European craft makers, from ceramics and glass to jewellery and textiles. We carefully choose the suppliers we work with and operate through trust and transparency to ensure lasting relationships are formed. We value getting to know the people behind the products that we offer.
