Textile & Apparel Textile & Apparel


We provide a wide range of solutions from environmentally conscious materials to apparel. We create uniforms that contain new value.

Uniforms worn at companies and schools in recent years not only have functionality such as being stretchable and absorbing sweat for quick drying, it has also become standard for them to be environmentally friendly in that they do not impact the earth’s environment throughout their life cycles, from raw materials to disposal.
In addition to development all manner of eco-materials and environmentally friendly systems, we also manufacture textile products, office wear, working wear, caddie wear, and other apparel products, as well as producing custom-made uniforms.


Highly Functional Clothing to Accommodate an Aging Society

As uniforms diversify, we are especially emphasizing development of nursing and nursing care clothing against the backdrop of the current aging society, as well as infection preventing wears and surgical fabrics, for which a high degree of functionality is required. Moving forward, we will deploy our business with an eye toward expanding sales of differentiated materials to global markets and manufacturing a variety of garments using our proprietary highly functional fabrics.

Accommodating Everything from Special Functions to Environmentally Friendly Products

We are also actively involved in uniforms for government agencies, which emphasize special functionality. Also, in recent years we have been engaged in development of everything from environmentally friendly products, such as the recycled polyester Uniecolo® and the Ecorally® recycling system that re-used consumed uniforms, to systems operation as important themes.
