It is one of descended company’s tradition to see the quality of raw material and its environment with designer’s naked eyes; which lead him to discover new materials and people.
To make new yarn is often equal to develop new technology.
The new era of Sato Seni started when our craftsmen found pleasure in challenges to create completely new yarn.
We started to modify our old machines to meet our targets and combine the new technology to complete products. This experience led us to develop our own technology, and brought us to the point to create special original fancy yarns. We keep trying to create unique quality yarn made in Japan.
Starting from the raw material selection, to create knitting fabric is another stage.
It is not only Japanese knitting technology but also the experience of English, French and Italian artisans support our craftsmanship.
We have dedicated much time to studying the skill of our predecessors in order to knit our present creations. Our aim to maximize the quality of materials also applies to our intricate knitting fabric design.

Mr. Sato assumed the position of fourth president in 2000 and started research and development of special fiber. He succeeded in reducing the thickness of a mohair fiber made of Angola-goat hair to 1/2 of the conventional limit and in spinning a 52m thread from 1g of the material. High skill was required to produce knit yarn made of 100% mohair because mohair was too slippery to spin but by modifying his old spinning machines, he produced mohair fiber that kept the delicate soft feeling of original material. This fine mohair fiber was used for a Nina Ricci cardigan, which First Lady Michelle Obama wore at the inauguration ceremony of President Obama, and attracted people’s attention. This company spins fibers, manufactures knit products and apparel and performs all the processes from development of fiber to manufacturing of products for itself. The company continuously exhibited its products at the world’s largest exhibition for knit materials in Italy and became one of the top brands in Europe and the U.S.
We hear that the fiber made by Sato Seni was used for a cardigan that First Lady Michelle Obama wore.
We have been manufacturing the spun yarn for nearly sixty years and have continuously put high priority on selection of good raw materials since we started our business. Our mohair fiber was used for her cardigan. Mohair fiber is a very important material, only a small amount of which can be taken from an Angora goat in South Africa. It is very difficult to spin mohair into long thin fiber because it is very slippery. It was said in our business field that only a 27m of fiber could be taken from 1g of the material at maximum, but we succeeded in production of a 52m ultra-fine mohair fiber. In fact, a mass-production machine that is controlled by a computer cannot manufacture such ultra-fine fiber. Only a modified old machine can produce such delicate fiber.
