In late 2014 we began work on the Vapors Project. The goal was to highlight and import independent brands we had come across in Japan. These brands not only put a significant amount of importance on being fiercely independent and unique, they all carry the same Japanese craftsmanship that inspired this project.
We ventured to Curly's headquarters and manufacturing facility in December 2014. Curly has been producing goods in Japan since 1963. Meeting with their founders, designers,and manufacturing staff. We were blown away by their sewing techniques, manufacturing original fabrics and pattern making techniques. Maintaining the highest quality is of the utmost importance, so they developed special sewing machines.
