~Cozy, Colorful, Comfort~
CHERRYSTONE Slipper Socks have an embroidery pattern of triangles around the sock opening resembling the clam called the cherrystone. These are called “cherrystone” because in Japan, these well-known socks are called "hamaguri" socks which is the Japanese word for the cherrystone clam. Since 1955, CHERRYSTONE Slipper Socks has continued to satisfy people with consistent, high-quality materials and expert craftsmanship.
Why CHERRYSTONE Slipper Socks?
1. Each one is handmade by craftsmen
The embroidery pattern of triangles along the sock opening is done by a special sewing machine called “CHERRYSTONE sewing machine,” which the craftsman embroiders one by one thoroughly. After embroidering with the sewing machine, the craftsman finishes the elegant pattern by knitting the rest by hand.
2. Comfortable inner pile fabric
CHERRYSTONE socks have longer loops of pile fabric yarn than normal socks. This provides more comfort and warmth than any traditional sock. The pile fabric also contains 40% wool, keeping your feet comfortable the instant you put them on.
From generation to generation, the cozy and colorful handcrafted slipper socks have been loved for over 60 years in Japan! Now CHERRYSTONE Slipper Socks are available in the US with many types of styles.
Choose ones to match with your lifestyle. Collect and enjoy many different colors and designs! Wear them barefoot or with socks and relax. Once you put them on you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!
