International Women’s Day Gift For This 2021

International Women’s Day is a very special day to celebrate the struggles and successes of women all over the world. And all throughout March, during Women’s History Month, we commemorate the strength and power of the women who have come before. At Sleet & Sole, we wanted to take this opportunity to pay a special tribute to all fierce and independent women who for yet another year have continued to fight for equality and the right to freedom for girls and women everywhere. 

Few images are as representative of female strength and independence, as Rosie the Riveter. She is the most iconic figure of the undeniable impact and ongoing struggle of women in the workplace. 

We chose REPREVE ® for this style because these socks embody the American industry and ingenuity represented by Rosie herself.  Using high quality recyclable materials, we have created the best sustainable socks made in the USA while also celebrating our history.

In each pair, 3 plastic bottles are transformed into super comfortable recycled socks that tell a piece of the story of women’s achievements in the workplace–the perfect gift to celebrate female power any day or as a special Women’s Day gift.

Bringing history into the present time, we also created Rosie The Riveter with Mask to represent the strength and endurance that millions of women have demonstrated this past year in the fight against the pandemic. We could think of no better image to represent the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day, Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world.

These socks made from bamboo fiber are soft, breathable and truly of the moment. Look no further for an original gift to celebrate the strong women in your life this March 8th.

Wishing you a happy and healthy International Women’s Day.
