towards a happy future.

The apparel industry is positioned as the second-largest environmental polluting industry in the world, and the massive disposal of textiles has become one of the global issues. In the midst of this, we, as producers, have launched the 'I am sustainable' ribbon brand, seriously contemplating and implementing our 'responsibility to create'.
Through the ribbons of this brand, we aim to reduce environmental impact and envision a sustainable future.

Road Map 2050

Toward Carbon Neutrality by 2050

In pursuit of realizing a decarbonized society and promoting a circular economy,
we aim for carbon neutrality by 2050 through the decarbonization of the entire value chain and the circulation of resources.
We have also set goals and obtained certification from the SBTi*.
*SBTi is an international initiative that encourages companies to set science-based medium- to long-term greenhouse gas reduction targets in line with the Paris Agreement, with the aim of achieving greenhouse gas emission reductions for mitigating climate change.

I am sustainable

I am sustainable is a sustainable materials brand that aims to create new sustainable norms for the Earth's environment, lifestyles, and workstyles.

Moreover, I am sustainable not only focuses on being environmentally friendly but also revolves around three core principles: 'sustainability,' 'quality,' and 'creativity.' These three principles guide our approach to craftsmanship and design. Through exquisite design and superior quality, we aspire to bring happiness to the hands of many who engage with our products.


Expanding a wide range of sustainable materials such as recycled polyester and organic cotton.
Providing what's needed, in the required quantities, with small batches and short lead times.
Obtaining third-party certification 'OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100' even for recycled materials.
Maintaining the same quality and price as conventional products.
At TAKASHIMA RIBBON, we have obtained the OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certification for both our conventional regular products and, pioneeringly, for our recycled materials. This certification stands as evidence of the world's highest safety standards for textile products. Through this achievement, we provide our customers with the assurance to use our products with confidence.



At I am sustainable, we prioritize sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, and work towards reducing environmental impact, including GHG emissions reduction. Furthermore, we set medium- to long-term CO2 reduction
goals and take responsibility as a manufacturer to address
environmental issues.


At I am sustainable, we focus on traceability and aim to create a circular society where happiness spreads from creators to users. To achieve this, in the process of material selection, we pay attention not only to quality and stability, but also exercise due diligence regarding issues such as child labor and forced
labor, while building a responsible
supply chain.


By fostering collaboration among various stakeholders, we will establish a circular society. Instead of a linear model, we are committed to creating products based on a circular economy approach. We believe that this added value generated through our efforts to address this societal challenge is significant.

Sustainabule Material

Environmentally friendly
with sustainable materials

Using sustainable materials contributes to reducing the environmental impact. Additionally,
utilizing recycled materials contributes to the reduction of fossil resources such as oil.

By adopting I am sustainable, we are actively creating a more sustainable future.

Raw Material List

RENU aims to realize a circular economy and contribute to the reduction of fossil resource use, including petroleum, by making effective use of unneeded clothing and leftover fabric and cutting scraps (fabrics) from production. We recycle discarded fibers as raw materials through chemical processes such as decomposition and repolymerization to provide products that are not inferior in quality to regular products.
Polyester, which is in relatively more stable supply than nylon, can be made into recycled polyester yarn by recycling plastic bottles in addition to collecting it from clothing.
This is an environmentally friendly, stretchable side-by-side composite fiber made from raw materials using plant-derived components and raw materials recycled through chemical recycling of used polyester fibers and other materials.
Fishing net nylon
Nylon is a synthetic fiber that is integrated into our daily lives. It is also known for its production volume, which is second only to polyester in the world. The problem of marine plastic debris is a growing concern. Numerous fishing nets floating in the ocean are having a negative impact on the lives of many living creatures, including whales, seals, and sea turtles. This material is made from recycled fishing nets.
PEACE BY PEACE COTTON PROJECT (PBP) sells products made from organic cotton produced in India with a fund attached, and uses the fund to support cotton farmers in India to switch to organic farming methods and to support schooling and scholarships for the children of farmers.
Smooth and smooth on the skin. Bemberg has deep colors that change expression in a variety of ways. The raw material of Bemberg is cotton linter*, a byproduct of cottonseed oil production. It is biodegradable by nature and returns to the soil and composts without harming the soil.
Curetex Yarn, a Japanese paper fiber developed by our company, is made from plant-based Japanese paper.


Recyclable and Regenerative Materials

It is said that the fashion industry generates around 92 million tons of waste annually worldwide,
and according to the Ministry of the Environment, clothing-related CO2 emissions globally reached approximately 2.1 billion tons in estimated figures for 2019.
Alongside reducing this environmental burden, we strive to realize a circular economy.

We are committed to addressing this issue by producing based on materials derived from not only our discarded fibers but also from resources like used clothing generated within the supply chain. By doing so, we contribute to solving this problem.

Moreover, through collaboration among various stakeholders, we will expand the circle of the circular economy.
Through co-creation, we are embarking on the challenge of creating even more added value.



We are available to assist with any inquiries regarding our products.

We will move forward in alignment and collaboration with the initiatives mentioned above,
which are the goals and activities advocated
by I am sustainable.
