Corporate Vision -A Life with Kimono-

About 1,500 years ago, the production of fine textiles began in Kyoto.

During the Onin War in Kyoto (1467-1477), the area where the western troops set up their positions came to be called “Nishijin”. After the war, weavers gathered in Nishijin, and the high-class textiles made in Nishijin came to be known as "Nishijin Textile”.


Throughout the long period of time, craftsmen have worked hard and changed with the times, and Nishijin Textile is widely known as one of the world's leading textile brands.


Although modern Japan has become a culture of Western-style clothes, the Kimono culture still attracts many people as a symbol of Japanese culture.

On the other hand, there are many people who want to wear Kimono but do not because they do not have a chance to wear it or do not know how to wear it.

In order to pass on the traditions and techniques of Nishijin Textile to the next generation, we have made it our mission to explore how to make it easier for people to wear Kimono today, and to propose “A Life with Kimono" to as many people as possible.

Outside of kimonos, we want people to enjoy Nishijin-ori, which is a very luxurious textiles unique to Japan.

Luxurious and colorful textiles made mainly of silk are extremely rare in the world!
