While being a barre instructor, founder Charlotte Hobgood, wanted to created a grip sock that blended fashion with function. While she was putting her vision to work, her husband was surfing a Fijian island clled Tavarua, better known as Tavi. She thought of her favorite wine as well, Pinot Noir, and thus Tavi Noir was created. Tavi Noir is inspired by the balance of strength and femininity. The socks they create are a statement of this inspiration -- a lush reflection of style. The heart of Tavi Noir’s lifestyle brand beats to the essence of three fundamentals: Function, Flow and Fashion. The triangle shape of the grip sole and their logo mark reflect this three-fold focus. They utilize sensual styling that invokes simple sophistication. They believe function, fashion, and fitness should flow seamlessly together. From the barre to boot, the gym to the beach, the hills to the streets; Tavi Noir socks are designed to make you look fabulous in every situation. However, these socks are more than just an accessor. Grip socks in Pilates and barre classes help you hold your form while you sweat, allowing your technique to be 100% effective. Tavi Noir's attention to the small details with a purpose effortlessly make a woman look and feel sexy, while still providing a functional purpose. Their mission to create products that help women flow through life is what they strive for. For this reason, Tavi Noir products are designed with the highest level of quality and most beautiful of details.
