These socks are made of crisp Washi (Japanese paper) yarn, featuring refreshing pile lining. Made out of natural Manila hemp fibre that is also used to make paper currency, the Washi yarn has excellent water-absorbent and moisture-wicking properties. Although it is usually difficult to pile knit Washi yarn, a special machine and artisanal craftsmanship have made it possible.

RoToTo socks are made by craftsmen and women 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. We will keep trying to produce things that can be created only in this place.
