Inspired by her desire to give and her passion to create beauty, Laurel Burch created art embraced by collectors and kindred spirits around the world.
Her myth and magic live on.
Despite her lifelong struggle with osteopetrosis, a rare bone disease that caused her to suffer more than 100 fractures, Laurel lived with extraordinary joy, undiminished gratitude, and a contagious positive spirit.
Like the mythical phoenix, Laurel was back.
Transcending cultures and crossing boundaries of age and race, LaurelÊ¼s exuberant designs reflect a love for life! Choose from socks, trouser socks, ankle socks, even slippers and slipper socks.
The number of moving legends about the giving, receiving, and sharing of Laurel Burch is a reflection not only of Laurel herself but of all the people drawn to her spirit as well as her designs.
Orders poured in and the business flourished.
In 2005, Laurel broke her right arm and rather than stop making the art she loved, she learned to paint left-handed until death found her on September 13, 2007 at age 61.
