Teijin Ltd. is supporting the exhibition of its home country, Japan, at Expo Milano 2015 by providing full sets of Japanese kimonos and accessories made with the Teijin Group’s polyester fabric. The kimonos will be worn by waitresses at Minokichi, a Japanese restaurant within the Japan Pavilion, during the half-year expo.

The expo theme is “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.” The Japan Pavilion, under its own theme of “Harmonious Diversity,” will introduce Japan’s agriculture, forestry and fishing industries and various initiatives regarding food. The kimonos will contribute to the introduction of Japanese food culture and the country’s ancient tradition of providing guests with deeply satisfying culinary experiences. Teijin’s fabric features deep, vivid colors and an elegant luster, yet is also washable and wrinkle resistant, combining beauty with functionality.

After the expo, the kimono fabric can be recycled with Teijin’s ECO CIRCLE™, its closed-loop recycling system, which turns used polyester into new fibers that offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
