The history of this Japanese sock brand began in 1950 just after World War II. Katsuji Nishiguchi founded the company with a single hand-operating knitting machine in Katsuragi, Nara prefecture. The brand's catchphrase "Hakuhito omoi" conveys a deep consideration for the people who purchase and enjoy the brand's products. Everything, including the materials, designs, knitting methods and prices is thoroughly vetted. By demonstrating a commitment to high-quality natural materials and combining new and old technologies and decades of experience, Nishiguchi Kutsushita creates true timeless classics of incomparable quality and aesthetic distinction.
