Approach to SDGs

「Forest Reconstruction Project」

Sunford’s strategic plan is to “contribute to SDGs through the fashion business.” For example, we will work to establish a climate change adaptation business in Cambodia. Specifically, we plan to cultivate and plant organic cotton on land purchased in Cambodia, control floods, sell clothing using organic cotton to the Japanese market, and gain more profit from the Japanese market. We aim to create a recycling-oriented business model, such as reinvesting in a wide range of afforestation.

Afforestation and organic cotton cultivation will be conducted in conjunction with the local NGO,IKTT (Khmer Traditional Textile Research Institute). Also, From Far East Inc., which promotes local adaptation projects under the “Forest of Wisdom Project,” has joined Sunford as a business alliance company and uses a system that allows full cooperation.

Test sales will start in the fiscal year of 2018, and commercialization will begin in some sales networks within 2019. Full-scale commercialization will begin in the fiscal year of 2022. Including men’s / lady’s T-shirts, children / toddler clothing and recovery wear are expected to be included.

The “Forest Reconstruction Project” has been adopted by the Climate Change Adaptation Effect Visualization Project (Contributing Visualization Project of Japanese Companies in Adaptation Areas in Developing Countries) in FY 2017.

SDGsへの取り組み

「森の再成プロジェクト」

サンフォードでは、「ファッションビジネスを通じたSDGsへの貢献」を戦略テーマとして掲げています。特にカンボジアでの気候変動適応ビジネスの確立に向け、取り組んでいきます。具体的には、カンボジアで購入した土地に、オーガニックコットンの栽培と植林を行い、洪水抑制をするとともに、オーガニックコットンを用いた衣料品を日本市場に向け販売し、日本市場で得た利益をより広範囲の植林へ再投資していくといった循環型のビジネルモデルを目指します。

植林とオーガニックコットン栽培は、現地NGOのIKTT(クメール伝統織物研究所)と連携して行います。 また「森の叡智プロジェクト」で現地の適応事業を推進しているフロムファーイーストもサンフォードの事業提携会社として協力団体に加わっており、全面的協力を得られる体制となっています。

2018年度はテスト販売を開始し、2019年から一部販売網での事業化開始、2022年度から本格的な事業化開始となります。Men’s/Lady’sTシャツをはじめ、子供/トドラー服、リカバリーウェアまでの展開を想定しています。

「森の再成プロジェクト」は平成29年度気候変動適応効果可視化事業(途上国における適応分野の我が国企業の貢献可視化事業)に採択されています。

AXF

<Concept>

 

Powered by Mineral Crystal

Unlocking the limitless potential of a body to a level your mind cannot imagine!

 

ABOUT AXF

AXF was jointly developed by SUNFORD Co., Ltd. and TEIKOKU Pharmaceutical Company.
AXF is high performance gear that is aimed at fixing the body balance as well as improving the body’s physical and motion.

 

The Integrated Functional Mineral Crystal (IFMC. – Japan Patent) is contained in its fiber, helping to dilate the body’s capillaries which in turn promotes better blood flow and increased oxygen supply.  It also improves the circulation within the lymph vessels, promoting the excretion of internal waste from the body.  The use of such advanced gear will therefore provide many advantages to the wearer, including relief of fatigue and swelling, fixing the trunk during physical exercise as well as improving the sense of balance.

 

 

The study has just been started by Prof. Takamichi Hirata at Tokyo City University, Department of Medical Engineering.
One of his study already showed that after spraying IFMC. solution to a cold-natured woman’s top of hand,
it is recognized the increase in body temperature along the blood vessel in about 2 minutes.

urbanretreat

<Concept>

“urbanretreat” launched in 2016 under the bright California sun in Downtown Los Angeles. FIDM graduate and former fashion designer/storeowner Makkie became a registered yoga instructor in 2014. She trained in Sedona, AZ, receiving her RYT 200 certificate from Yoga Alliance. Since then, she has been teaching hot stone yoga and designing clothes that complement her new lifestyle. With her knowledge in both fashion and yoga, it was natural for her to create the fashion forward athleisure line, “urbanretreat”.

Athleisure wear is fairly new, but it did not take long for this hybrid concept to attract super health conscious L.A. locals – individuals known to prefer organic products and practice yoga on a daily basis. Nowadays, athleisure wear is a wardrobe staple for not just people in Los Angeles, but also worldwide, helping the motivation of a heathy lifestyle, both mentally and physically. The concept behind “urbanretreat” is ‘Studio to Street’, having both functionality as active wear, and being trendy with fashion-forward designs.

“urbanretreat” is your new must have Every-Wear!!
