Tenkei T-shirt

We redesign based on "Say Young” their long-selling regular products for over 50 years which has kept with the original detail at the time of the company’s founding for more comfortable to wear. While they chose the no.36 thin yarn as the material for the t-shirt, they made it moderately thick by using circular knitting technique. The shiny cotton yarn is soft to the touch; the moderately thick cloth prevents the t-shirt from being see-through; and with the t-shirt being stretchable through circular knitting, it is a good fit for any body type. In order to not hinder the wearer’s movements, draping is used to make the most comfortable t-shirt. They adopt the blind stitched hem for the sleeves and hem that requires skilled hands. By doing so, the t-shirt can better endure the moment when one put on and take off the t-shirt, thereby increasing its durability and be usable for many years. Kumeseni makes the best use of their years of experience and know-how to make their original textile while working with the country’s best spinning, knitting, and dyeing factories in Japan and do their own cutting, sewing, printing and finishing in their factory. Truly, a product made in Japan.

Kumeseni Industries Co., Ltd.

A t-shirt specialist that pioneered the “color round neck” on t-shirts in Japan. Saichi Kume established the company as an underwear manufacturer in Ishihara, Tokyo in 1935. His son, Shinichi Kume, had a passion for movies and he admired Hollywood stars Marlon Brando and James Dean’s t-shirt styles, so he retailored the design patterns for the Japanese people. By working with sewing machine manufacturers to improve the sewing method, they started the production of the color round neck t-shirts. As experienced craftsmen with over half a century of experience in making t-shirts, they pay the utmost attention to every detail, from picking the material, to cutting, sewing and the finishing.
With their technical expertise, their group’s printing company won the top prize in Golden Squeegee award at a print show sponsored by Screen-printing Association International (SPAI). As a textile manufacturer, they were the first to obtain the ISO14001 certification in 2001. They continuously participate in environmentally sustainable practices such as popularizing organic cotton and adopting green power for their production process.
They believe that messages and pictures designs on t-shirts are mediums in joining people’s hearts, so they participate in many events and projects, like at the Sand Art Museum, in order to connect Japanese “culture” and “things” to the future through their t-shirts.
