In all of our processes, including the planning, designs, materials and management, we focus on producing the highest quality garments using the most advanced technology in Japan, while also injecting Japanese craftsmanship and work spirit into our products. Our products have been actively used by Japanese overseas climbing expedition teams and exploratory expedition teams, which has helped demonstrate POLEWARDS's brilliant history and the high quality of our products. Our items were produced based on such historical background as well as its integration into our current products.
In the autumn/winter 2013, we started deploying outdoor designs as well as down designs. In addition to the know-how and technology cultivated for the Antarctic observation teams, we also took advantage of the expertise we obtained by supporting Mr. Ogita, an Arctic adventurer, to develop products which last even among the harshest outdoor conditions.
