Guide to Materials


Cotton socks are a popular choice for summer due to their breathability and softness. They allow air to circulate around your feet, helping to keep them cool. However, keep in mind that cotton socks can absorb moisture and take longer to dry compared to synthetic materials.

Suvin Gold

Suvin Gold is derived from Sea Island cotton. A rare and premium type of cotton, known for being one of the finest and longest staple cotton fibers available. 

  • Superior Softness: Sea Island cotton fibers are incredibly soft and smooth, offering a luxurious feel against the skin. The long staple length of this cotton ensures that the fabric is exceptionally fine and silky.
  • Breathability: Sea Island cotton socks are known for their breathability, allowing air to circulate around your feet. This can help keep your feet cool and comfortable, making them suitable for summer wear.
  • Moisture Management: Sea Island cotton has natural moisture-wicking properties, which means it can absorb and wick away moisture from your feet. This can help keep your feet dry and prevent discomfort or odours.
  • Durability: Sea Island cotton is known for its strength and durability. Despite its softness, it can withstand regular wear and tear, ensuring that your socks last longer.
  • Hypoallergenic: Sea Island cotton is generally hypoallergenic and less likely to cause irritation or allergies, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin.


Linen socks are lightweight and breathable, making them ideal for hot summer days. Linen is a natural fabric that allows air to circulate, keeping your feet cool and dry. However, linen socks may not provide as much cushioning or durability as other materials.


Silk is a breathable material that allows air circulation around your feet. This can help prevent excessive sweating and odor, as well as promote a more comfortable and fresh feeling.

Silk is also known for its excellent moisture-wicking properties. It can absorb and draw away moisture from your feet, helping to keep them dry and comfortable. This can be particularly beneficial if you tend to sweat a lot or if you're wearing socks for extended periods.


Washi socks have gained popularity in recent years due to their excellent moisture-wicking properties and breathability.

Made from recycled Japanese paper, they can help keep your feet dry and comfortable by wicking away sweat and allowing air to flow through the fabric. Washi socks also tend to be soft and hypoallergenic.
