Hello, We’re MAZE.

We make socks that are extremely comfortable and are sure to start a conversation – good or bad!

We are all about creating our own products locally because we’re not just selling you Sri Lankan inspired designs that are mass-produced in China. We truly believe there’s a place for both quality and fun to co-exist, and hope you agree.

The idea for MAZE was born when founder, Prabath Seneviratne, spent one vision filled night, involving himself, pair of red socks, a ginger cat and a jar of lime pickle on top of a jambo tree… Okay, maybe not. However, we do very much admire cats, socks and lime pickle. So why don’t we just start over?

MAZE really is the brainchild of our most beloved founder Prabath. After working in the ‘corporate world’ and slowly climbing his way up the superficial ladder, he realised the world of the 9 to 5 white-collar worker is not exactly cut out for him. At the same time, he noticed that there were no socks made for the tropical weather and even worse no socks with iconic Sri Lankan designs on them. Looking at the shelves, there were socks he would wear, but nothing he’d love to wear. So, after quitting his job, learning everything there is about hosiery and with the encouragement of his family and friends, he realised that he needed to be his own boss, do his own thing and live his own dreams.

MAZE puts the lit in quality

The socks market is saturated with low quality polyester rich socks or worse – socks made from discounted cotton yarn. That’s where we change the game. Our socks are only made using high quality combed cotton with just the right amount of polyamide and elastane. What more all our socks are pre-washed for maximum colour retention (oh yes, you don’t have to wash them separately the first time) and extra softness.

Socks we love, made by the people we love

We’re proud of our products and of the people who make them.

Just like how some of our designs are inspired by Sri Lankan icons all our products are designed and produced in this paradise isle – right down to the packaging.

In addition to being made by people we know and trust, their factories are ISO 9001 certified for Quality management & ISO 14001 certified for Environment management so you know you are getting the best product with every purchase.

More than just a sock

There are socks and then there are MAZE!

Each part of our sock has a reason behind why it made that way. To name a few, the heel and the toe of our socks are reinforced to provide you with a comfortable hug that won’t let you down. All our socks are made of bright and bold yarns to ensure colour longevity even after several washes. The needle count is exactly at 144 to make the sock not too thick or not too thin with the right amount of moisture absorption. So yeah, we’ve thought a lot about you when we came up with our products so that you don’t think of our moms when you are wearing them!
