About Us

It is a testimony to the trust we have in our products that we have inherited since our establishment in 1903, with our outstanding technology from procurement of high-quality raw materials to tanning, dyeing, and finishing.


Sinse 1903

The company was founded in 1903.It all started when Kamanosuke Ogasawara, three generations before the current representative director, Takayuki Ogasawara, became independent from Isesho and set up a workshop in Taihei-cho (today's Taihei).
Later, after the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the company moved to Sumida-cho (present-day Sumida), creating the foundation for its current location.
Zenbei Ogasawara, the previous generation, succeeded him, and the company developed greatly after the war.
Our predecessor, Kenji Ogasawara, made the company a joint-stock corporation in 1964, and built a second factory in Kashiwa City in 1971.
In 2004, Takayuki Ogasawara assumed the position of Representative Director and has been in this position ever since.
