Koryo Town in Nara Prefecture is a sock town that accounts for about 40% of the sock production in Japan.

In recent years, the ratio of imports from overseas has increased in the sock industry, and the textile-related company volunteers in Koryo-cho who felt a sense of crisis about this situation established the brand "ORGANIC GARDEN" in 1994. .

As the brand name suggests, organic garden items use organic cotton as the main material.

Organic cotton is grown on land that has not been sprayed with chemical fertilizers or pesticides for three years or more, and is cotton that has not undergone any chemical treatment such as bleaching or shrink-proofing. It does not contain chemical substances, so it is gentle on the skin and has a soft texture compared to chemically treated cotton.

"Gala Spinning Machine"
Leg warmers made from yarn spun by spinning machines from the Meiji era



This "Garabo warmer" uses yarn spun by a spinning machine called "Garabo spinning machine" in the Meiji period.

Garabo yarns are similar to hand-spun yarns, and the twist of the yarn is sweet and the thickness is uneven, so it is characterized by its excellent water absorption. You can wear it regardless of the season.



Available in 2 colors: unbleached and natural black (charcoal heather).


Ivory is the natural color of cotton that has not been dyed.


Natural black (charcoal heather) is a mix of naturally dyed black threads


Ivory color with a slight nep feeling (off-white)


Slub texture (natural black)


Garabo yarn is very uneven in thickness, making it a difficult material to knit. At Organic Garden, the low-speed knitting machine is finely adjusted for the Garabo yarn, and it is carefully knitted.

In addition, it is knitted using gray threads dyed with natural dye Gobaishi, and the organic cotton and gray give it a richly expressive marbling.



A Rare Japanese Unique Spinning Machine "Gara Spinning Machine"



The Gara Spinning Machine (Gara Spinning Machine) is a spinning machine unique to Japan that was developed in 1873 by Gaun Tacchi (1842-1900), an inventor and former monk born in Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture. Machine. It is called by this name because it makes a rattling noise when it is in operation.

The yarn spun by Garabo is loosely twisted and uneven in thickness, making it very similar to hand-spun yarn. From the mid-Meiji period onwards, western-style spinning machines that were capable of spinning evenly and faster appeared, and the number of Gara spinning gradually decreased. Currently, only a few machines in Aichi Prefecture are still slowly spinning yarn.
