春の新商品
New Products for Spring

2015SSの新商品はちょっと便利な2アイテムです。
まずはおうちでリラックスしたり軽いエクササイズをするときに重宝なヨガトップ(15SS-C01)。お肌が敏感な方も着用できるよう、縫い代が肌に触れない始末になっています。
それから指なしミトン(15SS-G01)。不思議な形の1ピース裁ちの型紙ですが、縫い合わせると立体的な形になります。簡単に作れるのでギフトにもおすすめです。

Firstly, a yoga top (15SS-C01) which is useful when you do light exercises or relax at home.
It can be worn by those who have sensitive skins as seam allowances never touch skins.
Secondly, fingerless mitten gloves (15SS-G01) are with a mysterious pattern of one piece cutting, but when stitched together, they become three-dimensional. They are easy to produce and suitable for a gift.


D型ミトン開発秘話
Story behind the development of Type-D mitts

新発売の指なしミトンには「D型」という奇妙な名前がついています。このパターンは、もともとIngressというゲームのイベント「Darsana Tokyo」に参加したことがきっかけで作られました。イベントのアフターパーティーでファングッズの販売コーナーが設けられ、そこで20双のみ生産・販売したものが原型になっています。 そのため、スマートフォン操作に特化した構造になっています。
3月には京都でも大きなイベントがありますので、また新しい商品のアイデアが生まれるかもしれません!

The new product, fingerless mitten gloves are named 'Type-D' mysteriously.
This pattern was originally made after I went to an event called 'Darsana Tokyo' of a game 'Ingress'. At the after party, there were a shop area for selling goods for fans and I produced and sold 20 pairs, that became the model of the product. Therefore, It is designed especially for using smart phones. There will be another big event in Kyoto in March, and I will have ideas of new products again then!

Nippori Fabric Town

(In front of East Entrance of JR Nippori Station)

I could not go to interview shops in time this time, I would like to write about surroundings of Nippori Station.

Nippori Station is a junction where JR, Keisei, and Toneri liner lines are linked up with. There are ticket gates on the north and the south sides. If you are heading to the district where fabric shops are located, it is easy to go down the escalator at the east entrance. There are bus terminals, a police station, and many restaurants in front of the station. You can download a guide map on the website introducing the fabric town.

If you go to the west side of the station, you can enjoy the traditional shopping and entertainment town. If you go through a vast cemetery, you will get to an old shopping street called Yanaka Ginza. Snacks like fried cutlet with minced meat and a fish-shaped pancake filled with red bean paste are popular and there are many cafes with wonderful atmosphere. The street is also famous for many cats. Enjoy sightseeing with a camera in your hand!
