The whispering wanderer. That is the Pandith, an English soldier who was ordered to map the Tibet. He roamed the forbidden land for three years disguised behind a saffroned cloth, with a rosary whose beads worked as an abacus and a sextant in its staff’s grip. He muttered numbers while he feinted praying with these deceptively devout tools.

This scout waded through rivers, climbed mountains, was abducted and escaped. After fulfilling his deed he returned to Great Britain, where he drew a map whose accuracy still baffles today’s historians.

Pandith pays homage to this soldier who defied man’s opposition, overcame the lack of proper instruments and the challenges of the road. The company’s goal is to help those who share the cartographer’s will and seek to reach an objective, those for whom failure is not an option.

Pandith’s sock collection is the perfect partner for sportsmen who love to challenge themselves and attain that unsurpassable sensation of personal fulfillment.

 

Leonardo da Vinci

The world is becoming smaller by the day. Trains, cars and planes have shrunk distances and a voyage that would have taken months can now be travelled within hours. Time belongs to man thanks to his technological progress.

However, abusing these vehicles has led him to forget his natural way of movement: on foot. The average person takes 9000 steps per day and covers 150000 kilometers in his life. These extremities sustain the body’s weight and bear constant impacts on each stride.

Luckily, the design of man’s supports is extraordinary. Each has 26 bones, and together account for a fourth of the squeleton’s structure. The renaissance inventor Leonardo Da Vinci described them in one of his notebooks where he analyzes the human body as “a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art”.
