Knitting is a part of everyday life for expert artisans. Ladies have been seen doing so while walking a cow, balancing a bucket of water on their head, or laughing with friends around cups of chai.
Originally hailing from above 10,000 feet (3,080 meters) above sea level in sky-high mountain villages, winters in the Himalayas are no joke (to this day!) Many moons ago, when the snow fell, travel became completely impossible and prevented people from leaving their villages (this still occurs). With abundant time, crackling fires, and cold feet, the Himalayan people began using their knitting talents to create warm socks full of elaborate designs. As time moved on, knitting, as well as these designs, became a cultural mainstay in the homes of almost all Himalayan families. The patterns are passed down through the creation of socks and every Fazl product helps to preserve these designs for generations to come!
The Aasha Design – The Aasha socks are white with red, grey, and black details. They contain the traditional Himalayan pattern of jurra bumchack (joined x's) , which is a pattern that has existed in this community for centuries
- Stop buying boring white socks! If there is hope for your game of footsie it’s with these socks on. Be playful, be sophisticated – be hopeful
Footnote: Our socks are hand-made by real people. For this reason, each pair may include subtle variations in color and pattern details from those seen in our photos. The overall color scheme and design will remain very similar.
