Textiles are indispensable for our life.
Various materials depending on the usages.

For the most of people, the word “Textile” is associated with the cloth for clothing or Kimono in the first place. It is said the woven fabrics were born about 10,000 years ago at the time from the end of the Old Stone Age to the beginning of New Stone Age. In order to make clothing and daily necessities, the weaving technique became essential for our life and it was expanded to all over the world to be major industry. People used such natural fibers as linen, cotton, wool and silk. While the time went by, we received industrial revolution, the invention of the synthetic fibers and the advanced technology, which brought us mass production. Nowadays the usage of the textile become various and it is connected to every part of our daily life. We could say that we can’t live without textiles!

Woven fabric for industrial materials

We work on such high tech materials as carbon fibers, silicon fibers and aramid fibers.

With carbon fibers, we produce textiles for the fishing rod, the sports rackets, bicycle, aircrafts, etc. taking advantage of its lightness and strength. With silicon ones, we produce them for Formula 1 automobiles and Space development, etc. taking advantage of its high heat resistance. With aramid ones, we produce them for the bulletproof equipment for the vest and the helmet and the civil engineering and construction field.

(Textile made of Japanese paper yarn)

Washi is our cultural paper with Japanese own development. Washi paper is slit and is twisted to be Washi-yarn. Then we weave Washi Cloth with our own technique.

Washi is from natural resource (Abaca 100%) and it is ecological and biodegradable. Additionally washi naturally holds high water absorption, fast dry, moisture control and extremely low thermal conductivity rate. The cloth made of washi is very light and shows sufficient abrasion resistance.

This washi cloth is considered the fusion of our culture and technology and may change our life completely!
