I grew up in Kurashiki Kojima & DENIM was always by my side. After graduating from high school, I got a job at a major denim processing manufacturer.
After having experience in several other companies, launched own business as WHOVAL in 2007.
Then incorporated the firm in 2009. In the following year, I set up own washing plant with an idea "washing" is the most important step for the expression of denim.
Kurashiki Kojima became widely known as a town of jeans nationwide and to the world.
Seasoned technicians and sensitive young people are working hard together to expand the range of their work as well as challenging the various developments.
As a motto "from the birthplace of domestic jeans "Kojima" to "the world",we will inject all of our know-how and develop undiscovered technology for new products.
