Patterns - Paisley Socks


Paisley is one of the world’s oldest patterns. Of Persian origin, its teardrop shape was worn for centuries by Iranian Royalty who believed it was a sign of strength. The East India Company first introduced the pattern to the UK in the 17th Century. The popularity of the pattern, however, meant they couldn’t import the material quickly enough...

Step forward some smart people in a Scottish town called Paisley. They started making the pattern in the UK to meet the demand... in turn giving this ancient pattern its modern name.

When it comes to socks, geometric shapes are everywhere. Their precise lines and angles are mathematical perfection. The inspiration for all geometric shapes, however, has always come from nature.

So, for this collection, we skipped the man-made creations and looked to the natural world for your sock design.
