With the Local Community
Founded in Kyoto for nearly 100 years, we have a quite a history with our local community. With the support of the local communities, we were able to grow into the company we are today. To reciprocate the support we receive from the local community, we actively participate in activities and hold our own events. Connecting with the local community allows us to understand better about the role our company plays, and the responsibility we hold.
Occasionally, we have art events where the local people can explore different medias. Here are some images of the art events that was held within our physical shop in Kyoto, Japan.
As a company that focuses on improving sleep environment and enhancing sleep quality, we realize our responsibility of educating people of our community about sleep. Knowledge is a form of power, and sharing the knowledge about sleep is our way of empowering the local community.
Sustainable Development Goals
Our signature cotton gauze is durable and sustainable; in fact, the gauze becomes more comfortable after use. With such properties, our products naturally last longer. Realizing the responsibility and influence we have as a company, we have been attempting to further incorporate SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) into our activities. For a company to last nearly 100 years, innovation is necessarily. Viewing the SDGs as business practice guidelines, businesses can transition into business practices that are healthier to the society.
As our first step, we attempted to incorporate eco-friendly materials into our product development. We repurposed used coffee beans as dye for our pajamas, and we created a pajama with beautiful sage green color.
