Garments and textiles business Division

We developed an open-ended spinning machine that spins fibers using a vortex of air and pulls the fibers out to make threads for the first time in Japan.

The resulting rough texture is good for everyday use, and has increased our share in the casual garment category. Currently, we are developing various functional products using the technologies cultivated as our DNA.

Manufacturing of the water-resistant, water-repellent, breathable high-density woven fabric

We developed super high-density woven fabric in the 1960s.

It is a waterproof material that maintains moisture permeability and breathability, and was used in the ocean rescue uniforms of the Self-Defense Forces at the time.

Later, these characteristics along with the original elasticity and breathability of cotton were highly evaluated, and it was incorporated into trench coats.

Since then, while refining the basic performance, we have continued developing a product lineup that meets current needs.

Evolution from deodorant fiber to high-function fiber

Our deodorant fiber, which was developed through joint research with the Faculty of Textile Science and Technology at Shinshu University.

It has since evolved into the highly functional fiber which includes antibacterial, antiallergic, and antiviral functions.

It is used in masks, filters, bedding, automobile interiors, and more, and has received awards including the 8th Industry-Academia-Government Collaboration Contributors Award.

Overseas expansion ahead of the competition to establish a Japan-style production system abroad

We participated in the establishment of an Indonesian spinning company in 1971.

In 1992, we began sewing innerwear and other clothing for Japan, and established an integrated system for handling everything from raw yarn to products.

In 1995, we established a similar system in Suzhou, China, realizing mass production and quick delivery.

In this way, we have passed on our Daiwabo DNA, which that has been cultivated since our founding, outside Japan.
