Profile
Our company name ‘near’ is coined to mean to bring an element closer to an other end. We believe that nature flows not from the centre but from the linking of two circles. More specifically, contemporaneousness and universality coexist in clothes. Contemporaneousness, that is, ‘Faison’ wears thin and loses colour. Clothes take root in life so they never truly lose color. Our company name and logo shows not belonging of each circle but balance at the junction.


Designed by Takuya MIYAMA and Tomoko KAMIJIMA


We are Japanese. We opened as a partner 'near.nippon' to make clothes in 2000. Takuya is in charge of the design concept and Tomoko casts his idea into shape. This cooperation style has remained unchanged since the company established.
