In 1901, Chozaemon Yokota, who had expertise in selling dappled clothes known as “Kanoko Shibori” in Kyoto, embarked on the production and sale of threads. Guided by the belief that “Price is always changing, Quality is timeless,” he aimed to craft the finest sewing thread globally. Recognizing the transition in Japanese female clothing from cotton to silk, he began crafting threads suitable for sewing woolen or silk fabrics. He introduced “Silky Cotton Thread” with qualities like shine, durability, and smoothness, even though it was made from cotton. Chozaemon also marked his “Highest quality products” with the symbol of DARUMA.
