Textile Business Division

The Textile Business Division is the starting point of Kurabo with the establishment of the company in 1888, and has continued down to today.

Utilizing the unique technologies of spinning, weaving/knitting, dying and sewing that have been accumulated since its inception, Kurabo produces and sells highly functional and high-sensitivity products– mainly from natural fibers such as cotton, wool and linen. We strive to identify market needs before others, and our domestic plants play a central role by constantly developing new products based on our core technologies. We are confident that our offerings exceed the expectations of our customers. By integrating and fully utilizing the functions of our domestic and foreign plants, the Kurabo Group companies and partner companies, we flexibly respnd to the needs of global production and sales systems and create and provide new value that invites consumers to purchase our products and services covering a wide variety of categories.

We actively and constantly conduct environment awareness activities throughout all stages of product life and in all phases of our business activities.
