Amongst the many garment manufacturing companies in Japan, there are a few which have stood the test of time. These include Yonetomi, Sk8thing, Mastermind Japan, Numajiri Textile Laboratory, and Atago. Despite the fact that these companies are old, their products still retain the quality that has made them so popular.
1 Mastermind JAPAN
Founded in 1997, Mastermind Japan is one of Japan’s most iconic brands. The design ethos of the brand is driven by its creative director Masaaki Homma. His aim is to make Japanese designer streetwear accessible to a global audience.
Mastermind Japan has collaborated with many other notable labels, including adidas, Nike, and The North Face. The brand has also developed its own diffusion lines, which are a means of spreading the mastermind aesthetic to a wider audience.
The brand’s logo is accompanied by the word “Mastermind,” and incorporates the iconic skull and crossbones motif. This motif plays into the brand’s minimalist dark tones and alternative status.
The company has a strong reputation for quality. Its designs incorporate some of the most expensive fabrics and techniques available. Its seasonal ranges were a popular choice for high-fashion wardrobes. The company’s signature clothing has been worn by rappers such as Tyga and Future.
After a number of unsuccessful stores, Massaki decided to give the fashion world another shot. He opened his first store in Tokyo in 1999. Despite a short stint, the store sold out all of the designs within two weeks.
In late 2001, Mastermind suffered a major setback when one of its designers, Masaaki Fujiwara, had an internal struggle. He thought that his last booth at a design conference would be with Mastermind.
2 Atago and company
Developed by US performance fabric maker Ultrafabrics in collaboration with Tapis Corporation and Franklin Products, the Atago is a state of the art fire blocking backcloth. It also boasts industry leading haptics and a high level of insulation.
The Atago and its ilk can reduce the amount of components required to support a mission, thus saving money and time. In addition, the fabric passes tests with flying colors. This is in stark contrast to the traditional rigid fire-blocking cloth used on other types of military vehicles.
The Atago and its kin are expected to make their debut in 2020 or 2021. They’re also expected to have full ballistic missile defense capability. In order to achieve this feat, Japan will need to spend at least $421 million on upgrades. Some of the upgrades include engineering changes, software updates, and other ordnance modifications. The Atago and its ilk are also expected to have spare parts and other supporting equipment.
The Atago and its mate Ashigara would be capable of firing an updated SM-3 interceptor, known as the block IIA. It’s likely that the Atago and its ilk would be the first vessels to carry this weapon system.
The Atago and its scavengers are not the only fabric solutions available for the military. Japanese textile company Nakagawa Company, for example, produces two in-house fashion lines, one for ladies and one for men. The company’s products combine traditional Japanese craftsmanship with modern styles and patterns.

SK8THING is a Japanese designer and graphic artist who has become a major player in the Japanese streetwear scene. His work has contributed to the evolution of the industry, and has been instrumental in the development of many of the most popular brands. His early designs for Bathing Ape, for instance, are now famous.
During the 1990s, Sk8thing worked as a graphic designer at Nowhere, a small shop in the Harajuku neighborhood. The shop carried American and Japanese streetwear labels, as well as vintage clothing and memorabilia. Nigo, the founder of BAPE, was also a client at the store.
The brand grew into a major base for the Ura-Harajuku streetwear scene. The label was founded by Takahashi and Nigo, who realized that they needed a place to sell their own clothes. They opened a store called Nowhere, in 1993. The shop was split into two sections: one that sold imported American clothes, and another that sold items created by the founders.
During the late ’80s, Takahashi attended a Comme des Garcons show. This experience inspired him to start his own brand. He used a similar model to Stussy, which launched around SSUR. The clothes sold high-quality T-shirts and sportswear.
7 Toby Feltwell
