|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.
