There is a small directly managed workshop on Okinagabe Island, a remote island of 13,000 people surrounded by beautiful sea and rich nature located at the southern tip of Kagoshima Prefecture. The percentage of 65 years old or older is 33 % or more, and the birth rate is 2.02, which is a polygon elderly island, significantly exceeding the national average of 1.42.
Here, by ordering by sewing and ordering in the workshop, the employment of the elderly over the age of 60 and the employment of a child -raising generation. Shortly before I was able to buy things on the net, on an island where there was no place to buy clothes, mothers and grandmothers sewed family clothing. For this reason, many women are over 60 years old with high sewing technologies with high possession of occupational sewing machines. In addition, there is a textile culture unique to the island represented by Basho cloth, and it is a land that is rooted in handicraft culture.
We are working to become a place to be able to carry both the revitalization of the regional community and the economic activity.
・ We aim to balance women's economic independence and social interests.
・ We aim for regional co -creation by supporting the success of the elderly with sewing technologies.
・ We support economic activities with generations, such as the child -rearing generation and the work sharing of the elderly.
・ We will contribute to the improvement of their lives by ordering women who need to support employment.
・ Contribute to the inheritance of traditional manufacturing by economic activity.
・ Use the remaining cloth in the manufacturing process to be used effectively on another product and reduce the number of parts to be discarded as much as possible.
・ We will engage in brand activities in consideration of the environment, such as not using plastic bags.
