About

OUR COMPANY
Arebesk is a home grown, mom owned luxury brand known for creating the first designer grip sock. Arebesk launched out of a garage with just enough money to bring in one style, the Phish Net collection, with no budget left for marketing. After selling out in two local Los Angeles studios, studios around the world started demanding Arebesk, noticing our unique designs and unbeatable quality. 
Arebesk founder and pilates enthusiast Leana Shayefar received the inspiration for the company after falling in love with the pilates workout and struggling to find a grip sock that offered both style and traction.
Arebesk is the first grip sock to have two half circle silicone patches on the ball and heel of the foot for extra cushion and traction, as well as an extra silicone tab inside the heel of the sock to secure fit. Arebesk also pioneered the patent pending, easy-to-carry, mesh drawstring wash bag sold with every pair of Arebesk grip socks. The colorful line of pilates/yoga/barre/dance socks are mandatory apparel for any workout requiring a good grip.
The name Arebesk pays homage to the “arabesque,” a standard ballet step where the body is supported on one leg, with the other leg sweeps backwards. This move is also used in Pilates and other movement based workouts. Arebesk's triangular logo also emulates the ‘V' shape of the 'teaser' move in classic Pilates form.
Arebesk can be found online at Nordstrom and Free People Movement, as well as on www.arebesk.com and in pilates, barre, and yoga studios around the world. Find us on Instagram and Facebook at @arebeskusa.

OUR FOUNDER AND DESIGNER
At the age of 20, I moved from a small town to a big city with high hopes of making an impact in the fashion industry- with little money and lots of ideas.
My first attempt to sell accessories was cut short by a lot of rejection by local stores. I took my ideas to larger corporations, and I got my first big purchase order with Charlotte Russe. While that was a great stepping stone, it was not enough and my path moving forward was met with a lot of obstacles, dishonesty, and disappointments. I promised myself I would work hard and learn everything about this industry, with the hopes that one day I'd see my designs and hard work pay off. I gave up on my dreams somewhere along the way, settled down, had kids, and fell into the mom trap that many moms do.
I woke up one morning and realized I was not happy, and the only person that could change that was me. I signed up for pilates and instantly fell in love. Pilates strengthened my mind and body and reawakened my desire to create. From this came the inspiration to design high quality grip socks accompanied by a sock wash back, and Arebesk was born.
I want to thank all of the incredible customers and business owners that have given me and Arebesk so much love and support. It is because of you that I can do what I love and give back to the community that has given so much to me.
XOXO,
Leana
