Eco silk is woven with superfine remnant cotton fibres to create these soft, lustrous socks.
Nishiguchi took the extra fine cotton fibres called virgin cotton that remain after the yarn is produced and ran it through a specialized spinning machine. In addition, they combined this special yarn with silk thread. Enjoy both the smooth texture of silk and the softness of cotton. These crew-type socks are fluffy and comfy — ideal for wearing from spring to summer. The silk absorbs sweat leaving the feet to indulge in the smooth texture of the material. The playful two-colour design adds an accent to any outfit.

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.
