Blog: Leonie BarrieSushi style

Leonie Barrie | 7 July 2004

Try as I might, I'm still searching for a link between sushi and socks. One of the more bizarre press releases to come my way today is promoting a range of sushi-inspired baby socks, caps, and washcloths "which look like something out of your local sushi bar!" Now my understanding of sushi is, in the broadest terms, a Japanese dish of raw fish and other delicacies wrapped with rice and seaweed.

But US firm Pink Confection has taken this one step further: "Sushi & Socky contains two freshly rolled pieces of sushi made out of 3 pairs of rolled socks. In the middle is a coloured sock rolled inside of a white and then black sock. Washimi contains one coloured wash cloth resting on a white wash cloth, all tied together with black ribbon acting as seaweed. Cappa-Maki contains 3 baby caps in a roll. All are packaged in sushi take out containers with the ingredients and net weight on the labels."

To my mind this takes lateral thinking to the extreme. Maybe the range was inspired by a good meal - and a few too many bottles of sake rice wine!

Let the good times roll
