A timeless classic, the RoToTo OG Cotton Slub Sock will quickly become a pair on high rotation. Knitted with a mix of eco-friendly organic cotton slub yarn and recycled polyester yarn, the fabric provides both the comfort of cotton and the quick-drying properties and durability of polyester.

As the fabric is made of a mix of two different yarns to create a heather colour, dirt and fuzzballs don’t stand out on the surface even after repeated use.

Organic cotton slub yarn

With help from a spinning mill in Osaka, this yarn was created after repeated trials in selecting blends and thickness of the yarn as yell as the slub width. Each yarn is carefully and slowly spun by skilled operators with an old spinning machine that has been used since the 1950s.

Recycled polyester yarn

This yarn is made from recycled plastic bottles once used in Japan. These socks are designed to be worn for a long time, so RoToTo actively use highly transparent materials to ensure its eco-friendliness, quality and traceability.

Sizing:

Size S: 23-25cm (6-8)

Size L: 27-29cm (10-12)

About:

ROTOTO is made by our friends in Goryocho Village and the Nara Prefecture of Japan. Sock making began there over 100 years ago on a single machine brought over from the U.S.A. Continuing to make socks based on the principles of "lifetime consumables" and comfort, they blend sustainable yarns including organic cotton, silk, and linen to create the best socks you'll ever set foot in.

ROTOTO's socks can be made only with a combination of the right material, the right machine and craftsmanship. Their aim is to preserve the tradition inherited from their ancestors, while painting the future of the major producer of socks with a fresh point of view.
