50,000 archived samples to respond to any demand
A family owned company founded in 1920, it started as a kimono producer. Fashion fabric production began after 1945, quickly establishing the company as a leading manufacturer in the city. Kobatou is especially proud of the 50,000 fabric samples in its well-maintained archive. The owner, Kobayashi Masako, says: “We are always happy to show the amazing variety of Kiryu textiles to anyone interested.” The archive helps the company to respond to any demand from clients, which allowed it to build wide support and trust. More machines (2 German Dorniers and 28 Jacquards) mean a larger production scale, as well as a broader product range, such as faux-kimono, mixed natural fibres, and free-style picturesque design with fil-coupé jacquard. Kobatou has exhibited internationally, including the most renowned textile fair, Milano Unica. The company enjoys a great market presence both in Japan and overseas.
