I wouldn't add a product to this website unless I truly loved it and thought you would as well. For example: I'm currently wearing a pair while typing this! Missmatched, one of a kind socks to make you smile everytime you feel like shoe gazing. 

  'We wear them in our shoes, so they're named kutsunaka which means inside shoes in Japanese. Each yarn is individually dyed.
A sock factory in Nara knits each piece in different colors to make the best use of our colorful yarn.'

Size 2: Fits a women's shoe size 7-13 (25-28cm)

96% Cotton, 3% Polyester, 1% polyurethane

Tamaki Niime was established in 2006 in Nishiwaki City. Designer Tamaki Niime started the brand searching for a new way to represent the ancient methods of making cotton textiles, otherwise known as Banshu-ori. Home to Japan, Banshu-ori fabrics undergo one continuous process from yarn cultivation to the dyeing process. 

Tamaki’s work is characterized by a technique called saki-zome (pre-dying the thread before weaving), drawing from traditions dating back to 1792. 

In 2012, Niime began growing organic cotton with the goal of sourcing materials with 100% traceability in the future.


Cold water machine wash and lay flat to dry. Low heat dryer OK
I have loved this brand for years but they're a little more difficult to get in the US. In hoping to spark a shared love in you, I will be carrying Tamaki socks and other accessories that fit perfectly within the Megan-Ilene ethos.
