The “100-nen coat” (100 years coat) was produced as a combination of Japan’s finest craftsmanship with the vision of creating a remarkable coat that can be passed down from one generation to another and loved for the next 100 years.
To realize the quality fit for use over a long period of time, each of the three major steps in manufacturing – weaving the fabric, dyeing and sewing – was handled within Japan using the country’s most advanced techniques to create a purely Japan-made product. The yarn-dyed, high-density fabrics made from GIZA, the highest quality Egyptian cotton, are woven using very delicate techniques and treated with a durable water-repellent finish for added functionality. The sewing process is handled at SANYO Sewing, the country’s only sewing factory specializing in coats. Individual parts are carefully sewn together by skilled experts. A single coat is finally completed after undergoing more than 400 steps. Owners of these exceptional coats can take advantage of the 100 year Ownership Plan, a membership system that offers repairs and maintenance services. Truly, this coat will be a lifelong partner to its owner. Enjoy wearing and passing down this masterpiece imbued with the products of Japan’s finest craftsmanship.
In our 100 year Ownership Plan, we offer maintenance and repair services for the owners of the 100nen coat so that it can continue to be loved for years to come. We hope you can experience the Japanese tradition of valuing and cherishing a piece of clothing for a long time, as well as the splendid techniques of Japan’s textile industry.
