Becoming a company representing Kojima, the birthplace of Japanese jeans
Kojima is a beautiful land facing the Seto Inland Sea. Naoshima, which is famous for being a part of Art Setouchi, is also nearby. A nostalgic port town, the lushly green Mt. Washu, the Great Seto Bridge that you can see up close and the islands of the Seto Inland Sea. That is the scenery of this land which we adore, and we hope not only people involved in jeans production but also many people around the world come and see it.
Kojima, who leads "Okayama Denim" as the birthplace of domestic jeans, was known as a production center for school uniforms before that. As the times changed, fabric consumption changed from cotton to synthetic fibers, and jeans production was found as the next way to go. By fusing aizome, indigo dyeing and kasuri both of which are the traditional techniques of neighboring prefectures, and adding distress effects and vintage effects, have gave added value to our jeans. It has now attracted worldwide attention as high-quality jeans unique to Kojima.
We aim to make products while taking environment into consideration in order to protect the beautiful land. Passing the work and techniques which we have grown together with local associates to the next generation. Then, we will create an international company and vitalize Kojima. That is the future we envision.
