Marutomi responds by changing the production base depending on the project, its size and delivery times.
There is no need for you to change the manufacturer depending on the lot, leave everything to us!
Please feel free to contact Marutomi for PB planning and MD who are having trouble thinking of their seasonal plans and design proposals.
We also propose designs to meet requests based on materials, budgets, delivery dates, functions, etc., and also propose specification and sample creation.
In addition to leather, we also manufacture leather accessories made mainly of nylon and canvas fabrics, as well as all-nylon men’s bags, etc. It is also possible to collect materials from Italy, South Korea, China, etc. and produce them overseas. Please feel free to contact us regarding this.
Other various leather goods
Japanese staff use 2D CAD to create a flat pattern to customers’ request. We can share precise plan data with our overseas bases quickly and accurately.
Communication is quick, and directions can be taken directly, so you can get your corrected samples fast!
We have introduced a cutting machine that works with CAD patterns, so the machine can cut directly and quickly exactly as per the pattern.
Depending on the situation, we use a “plotter” that can cut and print, and a “knife-cut cutter” that can deal with delicate shapes. This not only saves time, but is also suitable for producing very small lots and cutting fabrics for products with delicate designs.
Using CAD, pattern revisions such as expansion of sizes from the standard product, or minor changes for each season, now take 1/10th of the process as compared to before.
Because patterns can be stored and managed as data, as compared to manual pattern production, it is exponentially faster to create patterns for different sizes of the same design, and to produce samples.
What if you want to move the production base due to issues with production lots, fabrics, unit prices, etc.? It’s possible to easily change the production base in a short time by sharing pattern data and other information if it is within the Marutomi network.
Unlike when it was manual work, there is no need to recreate patterns from scratch, and quality standards are retained.
In today’s world where speedy manufacturing is expected, desire for handmade work by artisans is decreasing.
However, it is also true that the starting point of manufacturing is always analog.
We hold on to the heritage of artisanry by converting patterns made by artisans into CAD.
In addition, when producing small lots, we also produce by hand, passing on skills to the next generation, in an effort to ensure the coexistence of technology and artisanry.
