I first discovered Tabio a quirky Japanese socks and hosiery speciality store on King’s Road nearly 8 years ago, I remember the store covered in abundance of colour, varied sock styles and materials, patterns et al.
As a poor fashion student back then I couldn’t helped but purchase a few of their signature wrap over sockettes and quirky socks, I still have them. They were utterly super expensive (3 times the price of my student daily travel fare) since then onwards I became their regular customer til this day.
Tabio is known for their delicate engineering in design and techniques, it is why they produce the finest quality socks in the world. They are made in Japan unlike other Japanese socks manufacturers have moved productions overseas. No wonder Tabio socks are favoured by celebrities; Helena Bonham Carter, Matt Smith (Dr Who), Tinie Tempah, Eliza Doolittle and many more.
The styles are endless.
