We developed these items with a socks manufacturer in Nara prefecture.
Nara is known as the largest socks producing region in Japan.Imanishi Socks Co., Ltd. is located in Takada city where many local manufacturers thrive.
We were happy to work with this renowned, highly skilled socks company. Although the concept is very unique and the products are niche, the president of Imanishi Socks graciously accepted our production order.
Thanks to their excellent skill and quality, we are able to offer Buddha themed socks. It is our honor to create a one of a kind product with a local manufacturer in Nara, the same place where we can see the largest collection of Buddhist statues in Japan.
We hope our Butsushita socks’ popularity spreads around the world.
