Aran knitting was first created in the Aran Islands, Ireland, over a thousand years ago. Inspired by the classic cable patterns on fisherman’s sweaters, this cotton watch cap is knitted with indigo-dyed cotton yarn so that it will fade beautifully with wear.
The sock production in the northwestern part of Nara Prefecture is thus originated from the area’s centuries-long tradition of the weaving industry. And that is why Rototo places more value on manufacturing that requires a lot of discussion with factory craftsmen who preserve the tradition and history. Rototo’s socks can be made only with a combination of the right material, the right machine and craftsmanship. They aim to preserve the tradition inherited from their ancestors.
