Precision Fukuhara Works, Ltd.|A circular knitting machine manufacturer boasting a world-class market share

Original Collection

Under the consulting of Ms. Sugayo Kawakami, a fashion creator who has worked on numerous stage costumes, we have developed an original collection of products using fabrics knitted on our circular knitting machines.

Ms. Sugayo Kawakami, who has worked on many costumes, uses her extensive knowledge and experience to create designs and patterns that make full use of the characteristics of knit fabrics, including the intricate patterns and excellent functionality that can only be achieved on FUKUHARA’s circular knitting machines. As our original collection, each piece is unique.

You can see our original collection in the presentation room of our main factory and at the exhibitions of each textile machine. Please come and visit us.

※We do not sell the original collection.
