Message from the President

Human Technology &
Life DesignImagine a life that is spiritually enriched by a towel

Sophisticated technology to turn your great plans into reality

FUJITAKA TOWEL is a towel maker that boasts a history of more than a hundred years in Imabari - a region of Japan well known for its towel production. Shortly after the company was founded, we gained the reputation as "Fujitaka - a Technological Company" and we have always led the towel industry; producing famous brands of towel and applying for various patents etc. Furthermore, it is company policy to ensure complete customer satisfaction, rather than simply boasting about our "weaving technology" to no avail. And with this in mind, we carry out the whole production process, from dyeing the yarn to the final finished product, within our company group - allowing us to guarantee peace of mind and safety for our customers. We have also built equipment and production systems that can adapt quickly, with short delivery times and small lots, depending on the needs of the times. At FUJITAKA, it is our mission to provide our customers with the highest quality towels, regardless of lot size.
