Japanese sock specialist Tabio launches first Paris store
Apr '09
With its 300 stores in Japan and 7 prestigious shops in London, the Japanese socks specialist Tabio is delighted to announce the opening of its first boutique in central Paris Marais area in June 2009.

Passion and prominence
Since 1968, Tabio have been concentrating their efforts towards creating a world-renowned socks brand. Their passion for quality and the determination to blend style and comfort led to immense success in Japan.

The launching of Tabio in the French capital city is another step towards the establishment of the world's first global sock brand.

A strategic location
Tabio will be settling down on the corner of the rue Vieille du Temple and rue du Roi de Sicile, in the famous red mosaic store listed as one of Paris historical monuments.

Traditions and customers' expectations in sock manufacture
Tabio speciality socks and other products are created using the traditions of Japanese craftsmanship. They are supplied by long-established family held manufacturers mostly based in Nara, the old Japanese capital city.

The production process is highly sophisticated. All speciality socks, leggings and other Tabio products undergo a series of meticulous tests to guarantee undisputable quality and exceed customers' expectations.

Variety and novelty
Fashion trends in Tokyo are in such constant evolution, that Tabio must keep inventing new designs to please this demanding market.

The Tabio range is truly impressive and includes not only basics (socks, tights, footsies) but also key fashion products (leg-warmers, leggings, toe-covers) as well as the traditional Japanese Tabi socks. The variety of products and colours is ideal to match your own style or customise your outfit.

On entering a Tabio specialist sock store, you will undoubtedly feel strongly that socks have indeed become a very unique accessory.
