Based in the city of Nishiwaki in Japan’s Hyogo Prefecture, Maruman is a manufacturer specializing in yarn-dyed cotton fabrics. Nishiwaki is located in the heart of the Banshu production area, with a history of over two centuries.
Presently, Maruman’s forte lies in the texture quality of its fabrics, which are essentially made to order for our clients, as per their requests specified through our order and manufacturing system. Though we work mainly with cotton, we develop textiles using all sorts of materials including paper, cupra tencel, and linen. We have earned the deep trust of Japanese and European brands for our intricately designed Jacquard fabrics, and are committed to attentive craftsmanship, working in close and detailed collaboration with fashion designers.
Japan is home to regions producing a variety of materials (such as cotton, wool, washi paper, and synthetic fibers) that are unparalleled in the rest of the world. Even as the country faces the challenge of a dearth of successors, there are many areas where these techniques are continuously being bequeathed. Along with our own company’s products, we are very pleased to be able to introduce you to unique fabrics from across Japan.
