Tokyo-based maker of spirited, premium socks, Glen Clyde knows a thing or two about sewing up some serious comfort. Each sock in their Chup line sports deep and complex patterning inspired by the folk art of native cultures from across the globe, and is made in Japan from a custom cotton blend on traditional stocking frame sewing machines before being finished and closed by hand. This ensures that each sock stands the test of time and will keep stepping for years to come. One of the Baltic states, Latvia, features hand-knit mittens and socks as part of the folk culture. This sock is based on that image. One of the unique features is the geometric patterns originating from motifs in nature. “Labdien” is Latvian for hello.
