Original textile material “MU-TECH ®”

Story behind development “MU-TECH®”

Story behind development MU-TECH®

C.MURATA AND CO.,LTD., which has been in business since the Meiji period, has developed its business as a specialist textile trading company, responding to customers’ needs.
Over time, we wanted our original products that can be sold with confidence to meet a wide range of their needs.
In the late 1990s, as the textile industry shifted to overseas production, we set out to develop new commercial materials in order to create a system to stably supply even small lots of high-quality, high-function materials in Japan, and to expand into other industries, such as sports brands, outdoor brands, and overseas apparel, that we had never had a business with.
Mainly our sales representatives talked to and exchanged opinions with major spinning manufacturers and domestic partner factories over and over.
In order to develop highly functional synthetic fiber materials, we teamed up with one of the world’s leading quality factories in the Hokuriku region to build a relationship of trust and develop the products we want to sell.
Finally, our original textile material “MU-TECH®” was developed.
Focusing on development of value-added materials, we repeatedly tested the materials to achieve functionality, texture, color, and cost, and some materials took more than a year to commercialize.
Featuring functions such as waterproofness and water-repellency “MU-TECH®” is now often used in many industries, starting from the field of bags, shoes and general goods.
As the product gained high awareness, the number of clients, including overseas apparel, has increased, and the product has become a pillar of our business.
