As a textile manufacturer,
what we have changed and what we have not.
TOYO ORIMONO started with 20 weaving looms in 1917 during the first World War.
In the more than one hundred years since, we have developed steadily even during turbulent times.
The keys to our success are no more than always striving to keep up with new trends and being ready for change.
Many things have changed since our inception and currently we have closed our own factories
in Japan in favor of "fabless" manufacturing overseas.
However, the value we offer as a textile manufacturer remains unchanged
: supplying products that satisfy customers' demands of time, cost and quality.
To accomplish this, we have built up a comprehensive business model
that includes dispatching Japanese technicians to supervise overseas factories, training local staff,
and providing in-depth technical support to our partners.
We will continuously adapt our ways of business and accommodate new development
in order to remain a company that offers value to our customers and society.
Not clinging to the past but looking forward to the future.
TOYO ORIMONO is always ready to take on new challenges and new possibilities.
