Aiming at Sharing Our Dreams
Feel the Next Dream since 1889
Dreams are not something to have but rather something to achieve. The Seiren Group does not consider that which cannot be achieved to be a dream. A dream is something concrete that can be achieved by action and something like a guidepost or signpost leading us in the right direction when changing the status quo. We will give shape to our dream in the most concrete manner possible, share it with you and challenge ourselves to make it come true to move ahead with reform. The SEIREN GROUP is a comprehensive textile manufacture committed to changing the world by pursuing the next dream with "Nobi-nobi" (self-motivation), "iki-iki" (responsibility) and "pichi-pichi" (commitment) as its management philosophy.
