MessageSend out Japanese knits to the world

UTO was founded at Aoyama, Tokyo in 1992 as a knit maker.
Today, the knit industry in Japan is in an extremely difficult situation due to overseas transfer of their factories. 97% of the knit items in Japan is produced overseas. Italy and Scotland are born place of traditional European knits, but even these counties have been outperformed by Asian countries.
Despite the rough period of knit industry, UTO kept the consistent style of planning, production and sales, all done by the company. This style is rare in Japan. We believe the nature of brand is production. The items of UTO are made by workers at the direct factory in Kitakami, Iwate as well as by experienced professionals, living in other areas of Japan. More than 95% of the knit items of UTO uses 100% cashmere. We work with cashmere every day, which has given us the confidence and pride to consider our cashmere items as the best.
We keep on striving to receive compliment of UTO cashmere items by fashion lovers in the world. Excellent techniques and delicate work by Japanese workers, as well as the quality of the items made in Japan are the key to success. We appreciate your continuous support.
