Socks (patterned)

Corgi

Established 1892

Founded in 1892 by Rhys Jones in Wales, Corgi is a manufacturer of finer quality socks. It all began when Rhys purchased some second-hand knitting machines and produced thigh-high woollen stockings for the local colliers. In 1989, Corgi was awarded a Royal Warrant by HRH the Prince of Wales, and continues to supply him and other members of the Royal family with socks.

Today, Corgi is specialized in producing top-quality socks featuring quirky patterns and motifs. Their signature hand-linked toe seams are completely flat, ensuring maximum comfort. The company is still managed by the Rhys family.
