In order to complete a good product, not only the design but also the quality of the processes carried out at each factory are important. At yinyang, we value the relationships we have with various factories, including sewing factories, dye factories, printing factories, embroidery factories, fabric stores, hardware stores, etc. until each piece of clothing is made.
We carefully carry out each work through communication with the craftsmen, including what kind of people are involved and what kind of place and environment the products are made in.
Our products are currently manufactured in factories in Indonesia, Japan, and China. We proceed while respecting each country's culture, religion, lifestyle, and mutual rhythm.
All negotiations with factories are conducted on the basis of fair transactions, and our main premise is that by continuing to do business with them at fair prices, local people will be able to live a healthy and prosperous life both physically and mentally.
Through communication with the manufacturing site, I was able to learn how important it is for a sustainable society to know the process by which a single product is completed.
70% of yinyang products are manufactured in Bali, Indonesia.
We have been manufacturing at the same factory for a long time since 2012.
Our local manufacturing staff, together with several local staff members, are responsible for everything from fabric selection to vegetable dyeing, sewing, and product inspection.
Each factory is largely a cottage industry, so the person in charge knows every member of the factory's family. The person in charge and the manufacturer mutually understand each other's rhythms and situations, and communicate carefully to proceed carefully and reliably.
In Japan, we mainly manufacture yinyang's standard lineup, while valuing connections and relationships with our home base of Kyoto.
We feel that securing a stable manufacturing route in Japan has the great benefits of stable sharing connections and reducing the burden of transportation fuel. Another characteristic of Japan is that there are many craftsmen. The quality of the sewing is very high, it does not easily fray, and it is sewn securely by making the most of the characteristics of the fabric.
In China, where there are many apparel factories, the factories that manufacture our products are located in Shandong Province and Jiangsu Province. I am.
We actively create products using new materials, such as knit products mainly made from natural fabrics such as hemp and organic cotton.
