Our socks are made in Italy, in the Apulia region, renowned for its expertise in weaving socks. The Hosier took care to get trusted partners, working in the tradition of Italian weavers.
Our series made of 100% fine virgin wool is particularly suitable for winter. The wool yarn is fine and provides a special comfort while keeping your feet warm. The Woolmark certificate is used to identify the products that contain from the shearing of healthy live animals, as opposed to wool recovered from the fleeces of slaughtered animals and recycled wool.
Our cotton socks are ideal for everyday use and are characterised by their strength. The cotton we use is subjected to a rigorous selection process and is made from 100% natural fibre. This series of colourful socks are manufactured in the Apulia region.

The dyeing of the socks follows a defined quality process: the spools of thread are immersed in several baths at precise temperatures and and for precise lengths of time. The dyeing of the thread must take place before the weaving process to ensure a uniform colour of the sock. This method ensures a durable colour and an impeccable quality.

Weaving is a production process in which the threads are interwoven at right angles to form the fabric and produce the different parts of the sock.
The weaving is done on high-tech machines to be sure to get an accurate and consistent density. Socks that are too thin or too thick will not properly combine lightness, comfort and durability, which is why it is important to find a balance.
After the weaving is completed, the socks are reinforced at the tip of the foot and at the heel, to prevent premature wear.
Re-meshing is the most delicate stage of the making of a sock, as it provides a delicate seam so that the sock perfectly follows the contours of the foot. It is the guarantor of your comfort. For maximum accuracy, this step is therefore done by hand, by our experienced craftsmen.
