Pantherella is a brand that does not compromise on quality or attention to detail. Promising quintessential English style with a modern twist, Pantherella design and manufacture the world’s finest socks for men and women.
Pantherella first started trading in 1937 in Leicester, England, as Midlands Hosiery Mills; a women’s hosiery factory, before the name was changed in 1945 and Pantherella Fine English Socks began. Louis Goldschmidt led the brand with the vision that lightweight, seamless and fancy socks were the future. After commissioning a specialist sock machine, Pantherella set the industry standard for creating the finest socks. Later, Goldschmidt expanded the company’s reach by exporting, first to Europe and then to North America and Australia.
Unrivalled craftsmanship and provenance are at the heart of the Pantherella brand. It takes years to build up the traditional skills required to complete the finest socks. Pantherella International Group, which today is owned by HJ Hall, has a highly-skilled and dedicated workforce, many of whom have been with the company for over 40 years. Each pair of socks is hand-finished and passes through dozens of skilled hands to ensure they meet Pantherella’s high quality standards. The details are what sets Pantherella socks apart – from fine-linked toe seams that add extra comfort, to reinforced heels and toes for lasting quality. Also, only the best yarns are sourced to make Pantherella socks, such as cashmere or Chinese silk.
Stocked by Harrods since the 1940s, Pantherella has built an esteemed reputation both in the UK and abroad, with a loyal following from style icons to royalty.
Pantherella’s quality is unmatched thanks to its stringent quality control: from start to finish, the brand controls the manufacture of its socks that are still made in Leicester today. Continuing the brand’s heritage, Justin Hall is Managing Director of Pantherella International Group and his family has been involved in the sock-making business for five generations.
