ROTOTO Recycle Cotton Ribbed Crew Socks Blue/Ivory
These chunky socks are knitted with a rare traditional machine with thick recycled cotton yarn that is often used for hand-knitting. ROTOTO always opts for recycled cotton yarn developed by a yarn company based also in Nara Prefecture. Their environment-minded product is made out of cotton waste from spinneries in Japan by re-spinning it with unique techniques. Although the material is more likely to get frayed, the mixed heather color made with two-strand yarn makes dirt and fuzz less visible.
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.
