# What are the different types of stripes ?

What often makes a striped pattern work is its contrast with another colour. This is why both Mazarin and Bresciani both have a selection of ribbed socks with coloured stripes. Mazarin has a range of ‘stries’, socks with very thin discreet stripes, which from a distance almost look like the same colour. Take a look as well at Gallo’s selection, where you will find their iconic horizontally striped pairs!
