Our most important qualities - Kodawari
Japanese Craftsmanship Over a Century in Nara, Japan
I began selling socks in North America in 2006. I learned some useful facts when it comes to making desirable socks such as using a variety of knitting machines, the thickness of the threads, and understanding different knitting patterns. Maarlie Hemp has these specific qualities below:
Using all natural materials that promote the self-satisfaction and well being of the people who use it.
Designing products that are comfortable, easy to wear, and sustainable.
Our legwear is made at a third-generation sock factory in Nara, Japan, where craftsmen have perfected their sock designs for more than 100 years. The factory is specialized in making socks with natural materials. There is a fifteen-step that goes into each pair of socks, and each step takes a considerable amount of time. Every single pair is inspected before it leaves the factory.
