About the company:
Tamaki Niime specializes in apparel produced using Banshu-ori fabric which is a traditional brand of fabric manufactured in the North Harima area of Hyogo. The methods used to weave and dye the fabric are based on a technology brought to Hyogo from Kyoto around 1800. Weaving and dyeing Banshu-ori was a popular off season side job for farmers around Kyoto. Traditional Banshu-ori must conform to certain methods and quality standards to be considered authentic.
In 2004, fashion designer Niime Tamaki started producing Banshu-ori using both new manufacturing methods and traditional ones. After much experimentation, she developed a soft cloth that has the consistency of cotton candy with a unique pattern and feel. The company continues to weave this fabric and apparel to this day.
The vision of Tamaki Niime is to turn the town of Hie-cho, where they are located, into a cotton town. In 2014 they began cultivating organic cotton on borrowed, abandoned farmland. They also are attempting to boost net domestic production of cotton by purchasing cotton seeds from growers at harvest and distributing them to people so they can also grow cotton. As they look to expand their business, Tamaki does consider issues of mass production, mass consumption, and global environmental impacts. In addition to cultivating cotton they grow vegetables which are used in their café annexed to their factory.
