About K. Bell
K. Bell was founded in 1979 by Karen Bell. An entrepreneurial designer originally from Gloucester, MA, Karen possessed a passion for fashion and sought to utilize her talents by creating fun, fashionable legwear. Improvements in technology allowed Karen to realize her vision at a time when hosiery was exploding in popularity. Karen's early years in business drew her to the factories of North Carolina and she quickly gained a reputation as one of the leading designers in the trade. K. Bell's strong management team developed a growth strategy focused on leveraging design capabilities to the retail chain markets. This allowed K. Bell to evolve from a specialty design base into a diverse supplier of branded and private label products. In late 2010, the company was acquired by Renfro Corporation. Located in North Carolina, Renfro ranks as one of the largest sock companies in the world. Successful partnerships have been built across all tiers of distribution, which include mass, large chain, and specialty retailers. K. Bell BLACK LABEL, K. Bell SPORT, K. Bell COLLECTION, and several licensed brands are distributed across the country. K. Bell's corporate offices are adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport in Southern California. K. Bell's main sales office is located in the Empire State Building in New York City. Explore K. Bell's philosophy that "Fun is Always in Fashion" at www.kbellsocks.com.
