Local sock maker iNFable is celebrating Black History Month in February with four new designs. The socks were the design and inspiration of iNFable CEO Attah Obande who is native to Nigeria.

John Hendershot, founder of the brand, said the new designs are an “opportunity for the brand to pay tribute to the rich history and culture of Africans and African Americans, and all of the genius that they have contributed to the world in which we live.”

The socks will be available at TJ MAXX and Marshalls stores — the company behind both stores already has ordered thousands of each of the four styles to sell in their stores nationwide. The socks also will be available at infablesocks.com.
