Think About Your Feet
Enriching the Everyday
Rototo believe in searching for small joys in our life, and that simple things, such as a beautifully-made pair of socks (and now scarves and beanies too!) can really make a difference to how you feel.
ROTOTO’s socks are made in Japan’s largest sock producing region, Nara Prefecture. Most are made in Koryocho, but they are also crafted in other sock-producing areas such as Yamatotakada, Kashiba, and Gose City.
The area has been known for its quality textiles, including Yamato Cotton and Yamato-kasuri, since around the 17th century.
Working With Craftsmen
Rototo start their sock, scarf and beanie making by selecting the right yarns for a design from a huge number of options, and then develop a new material that is made of a blend of selected yarns with help of the craftsmen.
Then Rototo choose a knitting machine to use according to the type of material and the usage of the product. Their options include rare machines for specialty use, old-style non-computerized knitters and latest hi-tech machines.
To make an ideal pair of socks, exchanging opinions with skilled craftsmen is as important as using the right machine depending on a product.
Rototo socks are made with natural fibers and the company focuses on reducing waste and environmental impact in their production process, making them a more eco-friendly option.
Rototo is a Japanese sock brand that was founded in 1914. Originally, the company produced socks for school uniforms and workwear. However, in recent years, they have expanded their line to include fashion-forward designs while still maintaining the durability and quality of their original products.
Japan's largest sock-producing region, Nara Prefecture, RoToTo blend the area's rich manufacturing tradition and craft with a modern sensibility, aiming to bring joy to your life one pair of socks at a time.
Ankle socks cover your entire foot and end at your ankle. Most people wear crew socks for exercising, hiking, daily use, or sometimes working. Ankle socks sit right above or right below the shoe opening, which allows them to be less visible when wearing shorts, capris, etc. Ankle socks are perfect for those who don’t like wearing tall socks.
Crew socks are taller than ankle socks and are often worn around the mid-calf. These type of socks can be worn pulled all the way up or cuffed at the top. Crew socks come in various colors and have specific “ribs” or textures that work to help your socks stay up on your leg better.
No! They also produce Scarves and Beanie Hats.
