Wool and cotton are combined to create these classic ribbed weave socks. With a casual, vintage look, their comfort increases with wear.
These rib-patterned socks are created with wool and cotton that are gently twisted into slab style weaving. This type of weaving gives these socks a casual look, and the gently intertwined yarn envelops your feet with softness and warmth. The vintage look and comfort maximize with wear. Wool and cotton absorb the dye at different time frames. We like the variance of tones created by the dyeing process as it adds to this casual and playful look.
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.
