World’s Most Expensive Socks


Read about the Most Expensive Socks in the wold.

Established just prior to the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Moxon Huddersfield has been producing handcrafted textiles for over 450 years. Moxon uses traditional methods to create their exclusive cloth, which may take up to fourteen weeks to produce—after three seasons of literal wool gathering!

Moxon uses the finest wools to produce its pieces, including mink, ermine and vicuña. They are best known, however, for their use of Altai cashmere gathered from goats bred in the mountainous Gorno-Altai Autonomous Region (now the Altai Republic) of the former Soviet Union.

The wool is processed on traditional wooden machines, including finishing machines exclusive to the firm. These machines were built using blueprints from the 19th century and are unique in the textile industry.
As if all that wasn’t enough to maintain exclusivity, Moxon is also particular about their clientele. The company not only keeps their clients’ identities confidential, they even keep their website private.

A pair of socks produced by this exceptional British textile house reportedly costs a staggering $400. At even half that, they would likely be the most expensive socks in the world.
