Outline

The "Amaike Super-Organza," the thinnest and lightest fashion fabric in the world, was developed in 2006, and had specifications at the time of an incredible 8 to 10 g/m2; currently the lightest weight is 5 g/m2, which earned a reputation for being as light as if you could not even feel it while touching it. The concept is "gentle as air, and translucent and glistening like the surface of water." The materials include polyester, nylon, silk and stainless steel, which undergo various post processing. As for the number of textile items, it has more than 1,000 kinds of special fashion fabric and as for the usage, it is used as a fashion material by more than 60 world-class fashion brands in Europe, with its use being increasingly expanded each year.
