While weaving cloth, I'm thinking "What can CHIGASAKI be?" Hi, how are you? Can be talk a little?
Of cause, you can listen to me while looking at materials I'll just be like talking to
myself-a soliloquist, sort of, while hoping people are listening. What ... who am I?
Well ... I am Mr. CHIGASAKI.
Don't get the wrong idea, though. I'm not the fouder of CHIGASAKI or anything. I love to stay in a corner of the CHIGASAKI factory all day long, while thinking about something.
What am I thinking? I'm thinking "What can CHIGASAKI be?" Does it sound strange?
You might ask, "What are you talking about? CHIGASAKI is simply a materials maker." Yes,indeed,CHIGASAKI is a materials maker. However,I really think creating beautiful
materials is quite profound. I feel something invisible is woven together with the
materials, and, that invisible thing may be important.
First, why do people seek fashion? When I think about what CHIGASAKI represents to customers, the term "third break"
comes to mind, meaning a third space that exists between home and workplace.
You can live without it, but you want it. You actually have a hard time getting along
without it. Perhaps CHIGASAKI represents such a space. In other words, it is a space
Well, maybe the word relaxation seems old-fashioned. Expressed in a modern way, "healing" might apply, but I thinkrelaxation is OK, don't you? Here, not only materials quality but also control of the production period; the sense in
texture finishing, and suggestions,are also important. There are too many important
things, and it is not easy, but we have to do our best in each category, because I
believe that ....
We are not selling just materials. We provide "feeling-good time" together with materials. Feeling-good time ! I can't help but excitedly repeat this over and over to myself. It can be time of a couple talking about something important on an important
afternoon in their life, or it may be time of a person dedicated to work finishing a new
project with a sense of relief. And then, I wonder what CHIGASAKI can be.
Of cause, I know it is a materials maker,but still ....
We want to create new textiles that excite the mind and body. But not only that. It would be nice to make the company itself a place to encounter feeling-good things and events in the future.
Fashion, art, yarn, materials, concepts ....yes, we want to be involved with many different things that can lead to the feeling of enjoying materials. And we want to enjoy working every day, creating materials every day, and realize our
dream in a natural way.
