Kotone is a garment that listens to the voice of your heart.
To live comfortably and be yourself in a stressful life
When it comes to clothing that covers the body, comfort is the first priority.
The silhouette is made from superior organic cotton material.
It will help you experience the true comfort of clothes.
Say goodbye to clothes and innerwear that don't fit, don't feel good against your skin, or make you feel cold.
"Kotone" was created by combining cotton and the sound of a koto.
We deliver clothing that touches your heartstrings with as little environmental impact as possible through pre-order manufacturing.
1. Price transparency
Kotone will publish and sell the production price (fabric materials, sewing charges, processing charges) of each product. As a result, we make it clear to our customers how much it costs to plan and produce each piece of clothing in Japan in minimum lots of 10 to 20 pieces using domestically produced fabrics. This production price does not include design, pattern production, distribution, packaging, and marketing costs.
The issues surrounding the modern apparel industry are serious. Large companies rely on cheap overseas labor to produce tens of thousands of garments and sell them at low prices, making it impossible for consumers to see the true price of the clothes. However, no matter where you are, people's lives are behind everything from making thread from materials, making a roll of cloth, sewing a piece of clothing, planning, designing, creating a pattern, managing production, and distributing it. It doesn't change the fact that there is.
We will sell at appropriate prices so that people involved in the apparel industry can continue without being exploited or forced to do so, and so that Kotone itself can continue and develop. In addition, the price will be reviewed as necessary as Kotone continues. If the number of orders increases in the future and the number of lots increases, the production price may drop. Although Kotone is a small initiative, we believe that it has meaning for the current apparel industry, and we will work on it with conviction.
