JUVENILE HALL ROLL CALL
(Juvenile Hall Roll Call)
None of the products we buy contain weird things that we don't know what to do. Made with the intention of designing 100% consistently. Only those who do not allow mistakes and do not allow ambiguous things. But what I make is ambiguous and allows ambiguous things. It has some meaning unconsciously apart from the author's consciousness. Rather, I'm working on how to capture ambiguity. The exact opposite.

Children of the discordance
In recent years, we have announced a collection centered on the development of fair trade items to the Sapatistas in Mexico and the Masai tribe in Africa, and the development of fair trade items to women and children living in refugee camps through the support of the last textile factory in Palestine.

In addition, the joint work, which started in 2014 and proposes a new interpretation of vintage wear with the artist "NAOTO YOSHIDA", is a premium collection that changes the concept of remake with a focus on Made in Japan.
“Children of the discordance” introduces fair trade products for the people such as from Zapatistas (Mexico) and Masai tribesmen (Africa). Plus, as one of their noteworthy activities, they release the products produced by the one and only remained domestic textile factory in Palestine for women and kids in refugee camp. The treasurable products are always created with designer's backbone such as youth-culture, deep knowledge of minor tribesmen and third world. Additionally, they started the special joint-work with the artist “NAOTO YOSHIDA” which offers the premium collection of New-Vintage-Clothes, remade in Japan.

Concept in remake by designer Kazuki
My remake is mostly based on vintage ones. Therefore, "Aji" and "Aku" that cannot be produced with the current technology will appear. Stain, fray, hole, tear, dirt, etc. are packed with the history of the person who used the clothing. I interpret these as "time is designing." Therefore, I may not fix it intentionally at my discretion. Used clothing is culled by individuals, not culled over time, and only unnecessary items are scraped off and refined. I pay homage to such a designer called "time" and make things.
"Time" ... "Time"
"Location" ・ ・ ・ "Location"
"Technology" ... "Technology"
"History" ... "History"
At that time, we will introduce new products that are created by combining the techniques and traditions cultivated around the world, which were born from the techniques learned in history at that place, and adding a modern essence that is completely different from that. We will create unseen items that can only be expressed with Remake, and create high-quality bags with craftsmanship while retaining the taste created by handwork such as colorful fabrics, tapes, beadwork, mirror work, coins, etc.
R PROJECT is a remake project produced by RAGTAG RAGTAG and rt, we collect clothes that could not be priced due to purchase and donate them to the poor areas of the world through volunteer groups, but some of the circumstances on the receiving country side Because of this, I couldn't make a donation, and some clothes had nowhere to go. This PROJECT started, thinking that there might be a way to use those clothes again with attachment without throwing them away. We collaborate with designers and creators of a wide range of genres who can sympathize with this feeling, and co-produce and sell remake items.
"Keep good things. Treasure."
It is our wish.
