Message from the President

Creating a life
that is spiritually enriched
by towels- Aimed at maximum customer satisfaction with reliable technology -

FUJITAKA TOWEL is a towel maker that boasts a history of more than one 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 – the Technological Company.” We have always led the towel industry, producing famous brands of towels and registering various patents.

Furthermore, focusing on in-house production we have an integrated production system from yarn dyeing to finished product.

Every day, our employees bring pride to the craft of manufacturing the most innovatively designed towels, and FUJITAKA's mission is to provide our customers with the safest and highest quality towels.

We will continue to contribute from Imabari and to the whole country and world through our towels, based on the idea that a sustainable society cannot exist without the richness of its employees and the development of the towel industry in our production area.
