Upcycling unused resources in sugarcane.

Sugarcane, the world's largest agricultural crop, is produced in more than 100 countries including Brazil, India, China, and Thailand, with an annual production of over 1.9 billion tons.
Bagasse, a by-product of sugar production, is an underutilized resource, with approximately 500 million tons produced  annually worldwide, all of which is not fully utilized.

Manufacturing process

Using sugar cane waste produced in Okinawa Prefecture as raw material, we manufacture fibers and fabrics using manufacturing technology in Japan.
We produce the minimum amount necessary and are working to prevent from mass production.


Raw materials and milling process in Okinawa

Bagasse generated in Okinawa Prefecture is dried and crushed before fermentation proceeds.



Paper making in Hokkaido

Using traditional Japanese washi manufacturing techniques, the company processes paper into thin, strong paper that can be used to make washi yarn.


Twisted yarn in Hiroshima

Paper containing bagasse is cut into thin pieces through a slitting process, and then twisted together to become paper thread.



Dyeing in Hiroshima

The warp threads are dyed by a dyeing manufacturer that has been in business for over 120 years. In the dyeing process, electrolyzed water is used during refining and washing to reduce the use of cleaning chemicals and CO2, resulting in eco-dying.


Woven fabric in Hiroshima

Denim fabric is woven in Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, a major production center for Japan denim.


Knitting in Osaka

Knitted into fabrics with the texture of bagasse washi yarn in the Senshu area, the birthplace of knitting.


Paper making


Functional fibers and fabrics that are lightweight and soft to the touch.

1. Lightweight, approximately 1/2 the weight of cotton.

2.  Excellent moisture absorption and heat retention characteristic of paper.

3.  Fabrics with high deodorant and antibacterial properties.

4. Smooth touch and unique sheen.


 Lignin in bagasse is a polyphenolic substance with

    antibacterial and odour-resistant functions.

Patented in Japan and the U.S., pending in Thailand, China and EP.

Patent 6570101 "Paper Yarn, Paper Cloth and Cloth Products.
