This industry includes spinning, reeling, weaving, knitting, and dyeing, as well as the sewing of clothes and manufacturing of textile goods. Japanese textile manufacturers possess innovative technology for creating functional fabrics with properties such as moisture/heat release and antimicrobial/deodorant effect. In this way, Japanese manufacturers enhance the performance of fabrics to create added value such as high durability and superior heat resistance. In addition to clothing and textiles, this innovative technology is increasingly used for other industrial materials, medical and hygienic materials, and lifestyle materials. The textile industry also includes corporations that provide services related to the storage and maintenance of clothing.
