About our introductory articles


Hello. I'm (as always) in Osaka, Japan in 2021 December. It is very cold. Do you take any measures for winter? Many men, many ways. And basically, it is important to warm our feet when it's cold. And so I'm talking about Souki Socks here. And I suppose you've (probably) got nothing about what Souki is. Souki is the Socks Maker in Nara, established in 1927. Oh, close to one hundred years ago!

What is the difference between Souki socks and usual ones? Their socks (mostly) use natural fiber that we usually use for wears. For instance, linen, wool and so on. Why do they use them? They believe socks are nothing but clothes our feet wear. Feet are, needless to say, a part of body. Then natural fiber must be used for feet. Souki considered so.

There are old machines (no one manufactures now) for making socks in Souki. And it is said they can make their socks comfortable. If you seriously choose the material good for your own feet, you will find a good partner for your feet. And they must help your life all the time.
