Every great journey starts with a first step.

Since 1892 Corgi have been making socks in Ammanford, Wales. That is a lot of experience in creating the finest socks that have been slipped onto the feet of Royalty and the proletariat alike. It all began with Rhys Jones creating socks for Welsh miners. These thigh high woollen socks were designed to keep miners warm during long ‘days’ underground. Rhys Jones then moved into ‘Sunday Best’ socks for the local colliers to visit chapel. As their reputation grew Corgi began manufacturing socks for the British Army in both the Great War and WWII.

The connection to the British Forces hasn’t waned. They now produce the Regimental Range that was commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales in aid of Combat Stress. A charity that helps servicemen that suffer from metal health problems that accumulate from combat.

The relationship with the Crown officially began when HRH The Prince of Wales bestowed a Royal Warrant in 1989. In recognition of creating the finest socks that are supplied to the Royal Household. Corgi still use many traditional techniques and older machines, including a very rare 125-year-old Griswold hand-knitting machine. Which was originally purchased by Rhys Jones, with all of the links in the toes hand crafted.

This family business from Carmarthenshire is still run by the great grandson and great granddaughter of Rhys Jones. And are as committed as ever to producing the finest socks your feet will love.

Make that first step in life’s journey as comfortable as it can be with Corgi Hosiery.
