The crepe type is knitted with irregularities, and you can strongly feel the rough touch unique to Japanese paper, Due to the unevenness, the area touching the skin is small, you can have a comfortable time when you sweat.

They are dry to the touch and comfortable for the feet
Natural, light and very functional, these socks are made from Japanese paper

Washi: "Japanese Paper" is a natural material from Japan made from paper. We use it for summer models because it is light, flexible, and has a better moisture absorption than cotton.


We use pulp as a raw material for the production of fine and durable washi. The fineness of the washi affects the fineness of the yarn, which in turn affects the comfort of the socks.


The washi is cut into very thin strips one millimetre wide and twisted into a thread. The quality of the yarn is stabilised by the uniformity of the cut, which is the result of an elaborate Japanese technique that produces excellent socks.


The twisted washi is then dyed, rolled into cones and processed in the same way as cotton or wool yarn for making socks.


Washi socks are characterised by their rough texture. These socks are particularly suitable for summer because they are very breathable and do not absorb moisture.
