Pantherella - Made in Leicester, UK, since 1937





Transcript of the 'Pantherella - Made in Leicester since 1937' video

My name's Justin Hall. I'm a 5th generation sock maker and my family started making socks in 1882. Pantherella was started in 1937 by Louis Goldschmidt. He started his factory on Hallaton Street here in Leicester, England and we're still based on the same street to this day.

Hand-Finished by Expert Sockmakers

Right from the very beginning, Pantherella established itself as a maker of fine English socks. We use a lot of modern machinery in making our socks, but it does mean we still use a lot of traditional techniques and processes. Every Pantherella sock is crafted by of our skilled team of sock makers. We've been making socks for generations. There's a real dedication to delivering quality and within the business there's generations of families who've worked here as well.

Each pair of our socks is hand-finished to ensure they meet our highest quality standards. Things such as the smooth fine-linked toe seams that add extra comfort. We do reinforce heels and toes for added durability. These are skills that can take years to acquire. There's a lot of know-how with regards to using natural materials and natural fibres. We do use the best quality materials in the world. We have done for generations and we're continuing to do so.
