The origin of Nagasuna Mayu
Nagasuna Mayu is located in Tango, the largest silk producing district in Japan.
Silk is a familiar material for the people of Tango. Even today, you can hear the sound of a weaver when you walk down the streets. When I was a child, our family ran a sericulture business. I still remember in my bed hearing the sound of silkworms eating mulberry at night. Silk was such a familiar thing for me.
Eventually, I took the path to become an engineer. But I always wanted to apply my engineering knowledge to silk and give back to my hometown Tango. Coincidentally, I was given the opportunity to develop a boiling kier for silk, and the journey of Nagasuna Mayu and silk began from there.
