History of Yarn
/ History of Maruito

Our company, Maruito, was founded as a “yarn business” in 1950. It was a time when the aftermath of the post-war turmoil still lingered. Fueled by our venturing spirit and vitality, our yarn business saw us through the early post-war years. As the times changed and a period of sharp economic growth began, we kept up with the flow and expanded, establishing the foundations of the company we are today. When the Japanese economy entered a period of stable growth in the 1980s, we launched full-scale into doing business directly with overseas clients. We remained dedicated to our main business even during the bubble era, and when the bubble burst in 1991, we adapted to the changes like a chameleon, accurately grasping how the times were changing. The post-war chaos, the steep economic growth, the stable growth, the bubble era, and its aftermath: in every period, we conducted ourselves in a manner the market would esteem. This is how we became what we are today.
In recent years, fiber materials for automotive vehicles interiors have been doing well. In particular, they have expanded to occupy almost 70 percent of the sewing yarn market in japan. In fact, besides our sewing yarns, other products we make are also being used in places that people do usually see. Many finished-car manufacturers use them in their interior spaces.
People value our company’s existence for products we make besides ones for automotive vehicles. Examples include bedding goods such as mattresses and mattress pads, lace materials for ladies’ outer garments and inner-garment foundations, and various kinds of handicraft threads for hand knitting. We sell products to a broad range of industries: materials for interiors, fiber materials for home electrical appliances and environmental uses, and more. We are expanding our business not only in Japan, but also to include China and Vietnam.
