The city of Sabae located in Fukui Prefecture,Japan, is a very small town
with a population of sixty thousand people.
But this town has built a
world-renowned reputation for producing high quality eyewear over 100 years
By the hands of skilled craftmen
The Raincoat co.,ltd respects this eyewear history of Sabae and treasures
the spirit of people who have tried to make quality eyewear products.
The Raincoat, continuously strives to create more special and valuable
eyewear with love and passion.
The Raincoat has started in the very small office room in June 2010 .
I had been working in the eyewear field for 12 years when I started raincoat
In spite of my experience of 12 years, I didn’t know about manufacturing
I had to study all of manufacture from the scratch. While I was studying
I had made the first eyewear brand to launch in 2010 IOFT (Internatinal
optica fari tokyo ) that is 59 hysteric.
It was made with all my passions and efforts
At that time I was confident that I would not fail and also I would not
succeed. As a result, we nearly failed
At now, the raincoat has 6 original brands and has been doing many OEM
The facecode flag shop of raincoat has been opened in Kyoto since 2015.
The Company name raincoat comes from loving rain
I love rainy days rather than sunny or snowy
Rain always makes me comfortable and sad at the same time.
I love those mixed feelings I also love its sounds and visuals
Some people say it is not a suitable name for an eyewear company.
Basically I agree with them. But I don’t care about it much
cause I want to manage that company not only for the money and success
but also for the expression which I feel about humans and life
