Hansel from Basel Small Zig Zag Socks
Los Angeles-based artist-turned-designer Hannah Byun created Hansel from Basel in 2007 as a way to apply a sense of much-needed zest to everyday legwear. Originally inspired by Hannah’s childhood nickname (“Hansel”) and her fascination with Switzerland (therefore “from Basel”), the collection is forever and always finding inspiration in every nook and cranny of life, from the mundane to the magical.
A great deal of attention, care and most of all, pride, make its spirited socks, tights and accessories not only feel so very special, but encourage to always continue evolving.
