Our Story

Daitou Shingu is a kyoto-based bedding manufacturing company founded in 1925. We have been making Futon, Zabuton, and garments for more than 90 years.

Today, we produce the finest gauze clothing and bedding in order to provide quality sleep. By using "Wazarashi", the traditional Japanese cotton scouring treatment, our cotton gauze is even softer and safe for sensitive, delicate skin.


Note from the founder

Daitou Shingu has established in Mibu area, Kyoto since 1925. Since then, we have been providing our manufacturing service to bedding stores located in Kyoto's "Fiber Street" as well as other industries. For example, kimono industry, interior design studios, linen supply industry, and architecture firms. We also broadened our service even more to department stores, medical facilities, hotels and hostels, and so on.

In 1990, we set up our new interior department in order to provide our service further into the house environment. Two years later, we opened our first direct-managed store in order to provide better sleep experiences. By applying our profound knowledge and techniques that have developed since 1920s, we want to help people with enhancing their sleep quality as much as possible. Thus, we built our online store in 2001, so we can improve the communication with the customers as well as offer further sleep support service.

In 2007, we have been recognized as "only one" in our field by Kyoto City Government with our research developments. We also recognized by Kyoto city's Oscar Award with our revolutionary business plans. In order to reach our goal, which is providing extra comfort sleep individually, we started from Kyoto and continue delivering to as much people as we can.

 

Our Values

We are always eager to present Kaimin and Kutsurogi to our customers. Kaimin in Japanese means a pleasant good night's sleep. Kutsurogi on the other hand means relaxing and feeling at home. They are both important concepts served as our main goal, so we can do our best to create the healthy and comfortable living environment for people.

We also create a comfortable working environment where employees can trust each other fully, as well as supporting their own self-development.

We, as a member of the society, will never lose our gratefulness to the people who support us to our existence. We are trying our best to secure the bright future for our society.
