Pantherella’s story begins in a small factory in Leicester. Here in 1937 a entrepreneur called Louis Goldschmidt starts to produce socks which are light but also very durable. In 1990 the esteemed brand Burberry buy’s Pantherella, and quality standards are raised again.
Today Pantherella is a global brand which never lost it’s typical British look and feel. Pantherella is still growing and is available at luxury retailer such as: Mr. Porter, Harrods and Rochester London.
The ShoeCare-Shop offers socks made from “Cotton Lisle” and “Merino Wool”. Next we explain the different qualities which these materials offer.
You must be thinking: Well that all sounds very nice. But what do these materials have to offer me? I’ll tell you.
Cotton Lisle is an Egyptian cotton which is mercerized to create a strong, bright and soft yarn. This treatment was invented by John Mercer in 1844 and is still used today by Pantherella to create beautiful socks with vivid and shiny tones. The ShoeCare-Shop offers many different Pantherella socks made from Cotton Lisle. You can grab a pair by clicking here (EU / UK).
Merino sheep are thanks to their excellent wool quality one of the most famous sheep in the world. Merino sheep have many skin folds, and because of that they produce a high quality wool which is very dense and soft. Merino sheep grow ten times more hair per square centimeter than any other sheep. One Merino sheep produces five kilo’s of wool every year. From our assortment we fell in love with one particular sock made from Merino wool. It has a lovely argyle pattern which makes it a really fashionable item suitable for casual or business wear. You can get them by clicking here (EU / UK).
