The etymology of MUJI's namesake is derived from Japanese words Mujirushi Ryohin, or "No Brand, Quality Goods," which means to say that product designs should be gimmick-free and entirely pragmatic. Synonymous with affordable, intelligent, and minimalist development and manufacturing techniques to elicit optimum functionality, you only have to look so far as their Right Angle Sock to understand the company's philosophy. Made in the shape of a right angle to mimic the way the foot extends from the leg, the Right Angle Sock removes all of the discomfort one might experience in a regularly shaped sock like bunching or slippage, based on its very elementary design principles. See the difference for yourself and slip into a pair, available online at MUJI.
