You would be surprised to hear that, nearly 90% of all socks circulating in international markets actually come from Shetou. It is a hosiery village in Changhua, Central Taiwan. And it is here that the stocking market was rooted during World War II.
Just after the War, the number of factories started increasing. And today, there are about 200 hosiery factories still working in Changhua. That’s why it is still named and respected as Taiwan’s “Hosiery Kingdom”.
Taiwan’s hosiery industry is taking a different turn. It is now utilizing all the modern technology at its disposal to increase production. It is competing with the big guns of hosiery brands.
Even though the industry is in the business of creating cotton socks, recently it’s the outdoor socks that’s winning the customers. The waterproof, outdoor sports socks have been developed for use in popular outdoor activities such as mountain climbing and river rafting.
These socks use three-layer.
Each layer has a distinct function. The surface layer is a durable, wear-resistant, functional fabric. And the middle layer is a seamless, solid 3D membrane material without gaps. Whereas the innermost wool layer is designed to keep the feet warm and strengthen the moisture permeability through a wicking function.
These socks produced are completely waterproof, cold proof, antibacterial and deodorizing. They are comfortable to wear and keep your feet warm.
Outdoor socks aren’t drab just because they are durable. They have tasteful designs. These socks have went through tough color fastness tests. That includes friction, washing, rain, exposure to sunlight, seawater immersion. The tests prove the socks are tough and best choice for everyday wear and tear.
