Amirisu - Founders

In 2011, the two people who met in the year of the earthquake, who love knitting, started an online magazine the following year. With the support of many volunteers, I was able to become independent as a business two years later.

>My hobby became a job, the business I started with just two people became a company, and now I have more employees, but the process was very natural and organic. Our main goal is not to overdo it because we have done what we love, to make ourselves, our customers, and our business partners happy, and to continue for a long time freely.

In the process, the joy of hand-crafting whatever you use, the wonder of cherishing it for a long time, and "doing it yourself, not buying" the handicrafts that were natural only a few decades ago but are now being lost. I would like to spread this not only in Japan but also in the world.
