What Makes Us Unique
Wheel House Designs has been designing novelty socks since 1989. It started at the kitchen table in the home of Gail Wheel Bourne while she was raising two small children. The spotted cow sock quickly put us on the map as a clever fashion design company. It rapidly became a well-known business, moving several times to accommodate its growth. 27 years and over 450 sock designs later, Gail and her creative cast of staff members are still designing and distributing unique socks worldwide. Our socks can be seen in gift shops, specialty stores, resorts and boutiques throughout the United States and abroad. Wheel House now has designs on various colored socks in the following 12 collections: Dogs, Birds, Cats, Country, Garden, Novelty, Wildlife, and Life on the Coast, Life in the Southwest, Holiday, Winter & Warm and Children’s. We continue to carry socks made in the USA with some now also being imported. We believe strongly in buying local. Our niche has been to stay true to customers who look for specialty products that are popular yet not found in major mass markets. We cater to specialty stores of all sizes, many who have been carrying our sock line for many years and who have also watched us change and helped us grow.
