Made of smooth kudzu washi fiber that is also soft

Socks with excellent moisture absorption and desorption, made with the plant representative of the Nara region – Kudzu (Japanese arrowroot).


Kudzu washi fiber is lightweight and has excellent moisture absorption and desorption properties, so it feels dry and refreshing on the feet without the worry of sweaty feet.
Tabi-style socks for less fatigue and a firmer fit
The big toe is sewn separately from the other toes, making these socks healthy and comfortable. This style allows a more natural spread for the toes for easy stepping and less fatigue.

The inner sole has a towelling-like pile knit, which absorbs stepping force – cushioning the foot and reducing foot fatigue.

Notes

Kudzu appears in Nihon Shoki (Chronicles of Japan, 8th Century) and Man’yoshu (Collection of Myriad Leaves), and is considered one of the symbols of Nara.


People have loved its flowers since ancient times, and its roots have been used to produce kudzu-yu, kudzu-mochi, medicines, and other products.


The yarn used in this project is a reused fiber made from kudzu washi: leftover kudzu powder from the production of Yoshino kudzu which would otherwise end up as waste is ground finely, kneaded into washi (fibrous Japanese paper), then incorporated with natural cotton yarn.


The raw material used is from the root that remains after the production of Yoshino kudzu.
The kudzu root is ground into a powder 20 microns in diameter, which is then strained into washi paper to make kudzu washi.
Thin strips of this kudzu washi are then entwined with natural cotton to form the fibrous threads.
