We will sell our 2023 products after taking preorders from the customers. This is our first time taking such large-scale preorders. We hope this preorder system will help to make our products available to all of you that might have had difficulties purchasing our products in the past.
We sometimes get accused of intentionally producing few items to increase the novelty and desirability of our products. In fact, we are continuously increasing our production capacity, but the quantity is still not meeting the growing demand.
Some say we should just produce even more, and of course, while producing more products should make them more widely available, more inventory usually also means more waste. While it is important to produce products with a high recycling rate, I believe that it is important not to produce products that become waste in the first place.
In many cases, our product development starts from the development of the fabric. It would be easier if we used ready-made fabrics, but we weave the material, dye it, and assemble it, which all increases the overall production time.
Though our products are made in Japan, Japan may not be the world leader in terms of manufacturing. Many makers produce in large factories with cutting-edge technologies in Vietnam and China. If we use the massive power in those countries, we may be able to increase the production capacity quite easily. We, however, manufacture our products in Japan even though it can be time-consuming because we still believe in the power of Japanese manufacturing.

So rather than just increase our production, we hope this preorder system will help to increase the reach of our products without generating any unnecessary waste.
