Tūrangawaewae

My roots are in New Zealand and the idea for Penn Friends socks materialized when a friend, who lives there, acquired a sock machine. 

There is a powerful Maori concept Tūrangawaewae — Tūranga (standing place) and Waewae (feet). Tūrangawaewae, a place to stand, is used to describe places where we feel especially empowered and connected, places we come from and the foundation we make for ourselves in the world. My hope is that perhaps, when you slip on a pair of Penn Friend socks, you might feel a little more connected to that!
