Born to be different.
Oneto single socks grow up in the Unites States, and are made in California by professional sock designers, yarn specialists and sock development experts. We worked for two years on various yarn testings, sublimation trials and the development of the ideal sock design. All this followed by pattern creations and test runs. ONETO's single socks consist of high quality ringspun cotton from North Carolina, which makes them more durable and gives them their soft feel.
Rinsgpun cotton is made by twisting and thinning the cotton strands to make a very fine, strong, soft rope of cotton fibers. You can try to feel the difference as ringspun cotton feels heavier to the touch than regular cotton, even though it isn’t in reality.

The thickness of the yarn, the design pattern and the needle count defines the weight and thickness of the socks. We use a medium to thin yarn with a high needle count, which makes them flexible and fairly light weight.

Quality checks happen throughout the entire progress. From checking yarn to the knitting, washing, flattening, packaging and order fulfillment. We constantly try to improve our process and make sure to meet the highest industry standards.
Socks, are the only love love relationship in my life. I can never be angry with them, and grow to love them more and more with each passing day. They are my passion children.
