The Origin And Classification Of Socks
- Apr 16, 2018 -

Ancient socks were known as "footwear" or "foot bags," and evolved into the current form of socks through thousands of years of evolution.

The women of the ancient Roman city wrapped fine straps on their feet and legs. The leggings were the most primitive socks. Until the middle of the Middle Ages, this kind of "socks" became popular in Europe, but instead of fine belts, cloths were used. In the 16th century, the Spaniards began to separate the trousers stockings from their trousers and began to knit socks by knitting. British Li, W. (WilliamLee) invented his research on knitting machinery by hand-knitting his wife. In 1589, he invented the world's first hand-knitting machine for weaving wool trousers. In 1598 it was redesigned into a knitting machine that can produce finer stockings. Soon Frenchman Fournier started production of stockings in Lyon. It was not until the middle of the 17th century that cotton socks were produced. After the invention of nylon by DuPont in 1938, the first batch of nylon socks was put on the market in the same year. Since then, a complete change has taken place in the sock market. Nylon stockings have become popular and popular. The European fashion was late until the first batch of nylon stockings was formally launched in 1945. According to research, the most primitive socks appeared in China's Xia Dynasty (21st to 17th century BC), which is also the originator of modern socks. In the "Wen Zi" book, there is the phrase "The king of the King of Literature, the Department of Socks," refers to the band of Zhou Wenwang's socks. From the point of view of the two pairs of kneeling socks unearthed from the Tomb of the Western Han Dynasty at No. 1 Mawangdui in Changsha, they were all made using a tailor's tailoring, stitched to the feet and back, and the bottom was seamless. The stockings are open at the back and garters are attached to the opening. The number of socks is 23cm and 23.4cm. The socks are 21cm high and 22.5cm high. It can be seen that the process of sewing socks in China has been at least 2,000 years old, much earlier than in Europe, and it can be said that the appearance of socks was first in China.

There are many kinds of socks, according to the length of socks, stockings, socks, and stockings; Men's socks, women's socks, and children's socks. The stockings are organized by socks, stockings and socks. The stockings include socks, socks and backs, and socks. The role of socks is to keep the edges of the socks from coming off and sticking to the legs. The main parameters of socks are 5: socks, socks, total length, length and height. The specifications of the socks are indicated by the socks, and the socks are based on the actual length of the socks, so knowing that you have a long foot allows you to buy a well-fitted sock. However, due to the different raw materials used in socks, it is also different in the series of socks. Among them, the elastic nylon socks have a difference of 2cm for the bottom of the sock, and 1 socks for the cotton socks, nylon stockings, and blended socks.
