visit Belgium

 
 
 

Belgian linens that FACTORY carries are made with thread from Kortrijk,

 

Belgium that was awarded EUROPEAN FLAX® title given to highest

 

quality linen in the world.

 

Linen production method that has been the same since the early days.

 

Sticking to only harvesting once in a few years, our hemp is grown blessed

 

with rich soil, appropriate amount of rain, energy of the sun and wind that

 

runs through the earth. Hemp that is grown tall with long fiber is then

 

refined slowly over time with only natural power to be made into linen

 

material.

 

This glossy, horsehair-like thread feels nice and has no scratchy feel or

 

stiffness that is common in linen

 
 

visit Paris

 
 
 

In 2017, we transferred our designing department to Paris and started

 

production with newly gathered designing team.

 

Learning the tradition and the technique,we selected Paris, France as the

 

place to create global design.Manufacturing that combines unique

 

silhouette and traditional craftmanship is our theme and we add Japanese

 

and Oriental feel for the wardrobe.

 
 

visit Mongolia

 
 
 

With only a slight clue, we made deep inroads into the field.Feeling the

 

local life and touching the raw materials. The story goes back to fifteen years ago.

 

We found ourselves in Mongolia searching for the best winter clothes

 

materials, thinking good wool should be found in a cold place.

 

What we found was brown ground with running rocky mountains and

 

blue sky, not the endless grass field like we imagined.

 

Looking for nomad we traversed several mountains and valleys, and finally

 

found an isolated bao in the grass field. There we found the nomad life.

Band of cashmere goats, quiet but bold yaks, tall camels that look down at

 

us and guard dogs that protect them. Endless sky and dry field where it

 

does not rain much all year round.In the harsh cold winter that falls below

 

minus 40℃,animals’ instincts grow hair that holds moisture and warmth.

 

Touching the coat of those animals, we got the solid sense of it.

 

Cashmere becomes uniquely soft with delicate feel yet having wildness and

 

thick texture.Yak combines bulkiness and elasticity yet has soft and

 

delicate texture. Camels grow in the dry desert weather with large

 

difference in temperature of the day and night, so their hair has oily and

 

thick yet has smooth and willowy texture.

 

Each kinds of wool are unique, because each characteristic derives from

 

harsh environment and natural blessings.

 

Origination of FACTORY Fall/Winter Collection is the bleak field that

 

nurtures wildness that is located in Bayankhongor Province in central

 

southern Mongolia, 650 km away from the capital city Ulaanbaatar.
