FOR OVERSEA CUSTOMERS
More simple and with the best quality
- free stitch since 2002. -
A simple but high quality design. In the beginning, Tokyo-based graphic designers started to create dog items for their own dogs, and owners who were looking for more fashionable and classy products. Our products are designed in Tokyo and manufactured in Japan, making our customers value our products. Currently, our brand is distributed in specialized dog boutiques in Japan, the United Kingdom and Korea.
We also deal with selected third party goods within a speciality store and online shop in Japan, besides the private label free stitch. It means our brand concept is focused on the suggestion of a lifestyle with dogs and their owners. Depending on your needs, we will aim to carefully create and coordinate a quality lifestyle for you and your dog from our wide range of products.
Quality of life with you! This is our corporate message. Thank you for your continued support.
