These two striped crew socks are perfect to match with spring/summer outfits. The 3x1 ribbed fabric is knitted with an old-style low-gauge knitting machine with a mix of linen and organic cotton yarn produced by a unique fuzz-resistant spinning method called compact spinning. Linen is a material that is excellent in breathability, moisture absorption and moisture desorption.
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.
