Pop up sock shop
“Beautiful stockings and socks fully fit every outfit. I usually wear knee high stockings with my skirts and dresses, with shoes as well as boots.
I’m now lucky to have a suitable selection within reach – Aymara have opened a pop up sock shop on the 1st floor of SLOWFASHIONhouse.
Not only are Aymare socks and stockings beautiful, made from a wonderful super soft blend of baby alpaca, silk, nylon and lycra, they are also comfortable because they are manufactured with a hand linked toe.
This very special process sets Aymara socks apart from many other socks. Hand linking is a method of closing the toe seam by pairing together the stitches on either side, then linking them with a single thread to create a uniformly smooth and perfectly flat finish.
The cheaper alternative is to overlock the seam but this often causes discomfort, most noticeably when a perfectly-fitting shoe is worn.
Once you’ve tried hand linked socks, you will never want to return to socks with inside seams. “
The knitwear company Aymara was founded out of a common love for design, high-quality products, nature's finest materials and a social commitment.
The philosophy is to produce garments in the location where the yarn and expertise originates from. Aymara combines European design with a production in Bolivia based on sustainable principles while implementing ethical standards for working conditions and production. Aymara is also the name of an indigenous people in Bolivia.
