Mekke Womens Socks

ColorLight Grey

These softly cushioned Japanese-made socks from Kontex will quickly become your go-to when you have a long day ahead of you, thanks to a comfortable fit from toe to heel.

Mekke Socks, named after the Japanese slang term mekke-mono (which means "good find"), are woven on the same slow looms as many of our favourite Kontex Japanese Towels. Each pair has a cushy and absorbent terry sole to help minimise the unpleasant sweaty feet feeling. These socks will become a weekly favourite, you'll want a pair in every colour. 

Material: 85% cotton pile, 10% polyester, 3% nylon, 2% polyurethane

Size: Small | US women's sizes 5-8; US men's sizes <6.5

Medium | US women's sizes 8-11; US men's sizes 6.5-10

Kontex towels are woven at gentle speeds on an old fashioned weaving machine. This process brings out the natural softness of the materials and makes the towels as soft and silky as cashmere, yet durable enough for everyday use.

Kontex artisans have learnt the skill of weaving from their ancestors. By supporting them, we ensure their skills are not lost and we are able to continue to offer these beautiful products to the market.

When washing your towels, be careful to avoid putting them with anything that may sang or pull such as velcro or zips.

When line drying your towels, it is best to hang them in the shade with good ventilation. Please avoid direct sunlight to prevent hardening of the pile and fading of the colours. 

For a fluffier finish, it is recommended you tumble dry your towel. Please be aware that the towel may shrink slightly in the dryer.

Please avoid using fabric softener or bleach, as it may diminish absorbency and weaken the fibres.
