Hansel from Basel
Pile Crew Sock
We can’t wait to curl up in this pair of super cozy and plush terry crews. They’re the definition of comfort so don’t be surprised when you won’t want to take them off.
As part of our Made in Japan "Varsity Series" these slub cotton knits are made on a special low gage machine that give it that unique vintage look.

About the Brand
Los Angeles-based artist-turned-designer Hannah Byan created Hansel from Basel in 2007 as a way to apply a sense of much-needed zest to everyday legwear.
Originally inspired by Hannah's childhood nickname ("Hansel") and her fascination with Switzerland (therefore "from Basel"), the collection is forever and always finding inspiration in every nook and cranny of life, from the mundane to the magical.
A great deal of attention, care and most of all, pride, make our spirited socks, tights and accessories not only feel so very special, but encourage us to always continue evolving.
