Go to Guangzhou, China to choose fabrics – FRONTIER LifestyleShop JP

Most of the fabrics used in Frontier products are procured from Guangzhou, China. It's been a while since I visited, but I'd like to introduce you to the situation at that time.

Guangzhou City is a place where fabric markets gather, and the market is a big building. There are many huge buildings with a huge number of fabric shops.

There are quite a few fake leathers like the ones used in room's , and there are also cloth, denim, boa... fabrics as far as the eye can see... Not only fabrics, but also buttons, lace, and ribbons. The number of stores is so large that it is difficult to visit them all in one day.

Each fabric store has a large number of fabric samples called swatches. I'm looking for a piece called. You can take this swatch home with you, so take it as many as you can and carefully consider it later. Address and contact information are written on each swatch, and it is a mechanism that can be ordered at a later date.

By the way, it seems that bicycles are allowed in this building (or rather, most places in China), and there are people on the second floor who are moving around by bicycle (and it's electric, so it's quite fast...).

There are shops selling food such as potatoes in the building, so you can spend hours here. In fact, the more you look at it, the more wonderful fabrics and fabrics you've never seen in Japan.

The swatch I brought home. This is just a small part and there is much more. At first glance, it looks like the same fabric, but if you look closely, you can see that the color unevenness, texture, and gloss are slightly different.

I went to see many markets, walked and walked ... .... The excitement when you meet the ideal fabric is all the more...

We will continue to develop products using carefully selected fabrics, so please look forward to it.
