How's MOTHERHOUSE operating?

Our bags begin with a first sample based on
a rough pattern drawn by our designer, Eriko.
She spends half of the year in this sample room,
designing and developing materials.

In the sewing section, there are three divisions;
the lining division, the leather division, and the fabric division. Each division uses different sewing machines.

Almost of our bags are handmade,
each section has a supervisor who checks progress
and quality with a "notebook" in one hand.

Let us introduce some of our staff to you

Monjurani, in charge of sewing

She came to our factory when it had only 5 employees.

Being able to sew even the thickest of leather using a special machine, her sewing skills are the best in the factory.

Through inviting us to her son’s wedding, and providing production with wood supplied from her husband, her whole family feels closely involved with our company.

Mithu, one of the two supervisors in our factory.

He is shy and not particularly good at talking
in front of people, but he is a superior craftsman.
He is able to calmly give proper instructions
to his subordinates.

He visited Japan in 2014.
"I’ll never forget how special it was to be able to
speak directly with our customers”,
he says, continually supporting the factory.

Morched, a sample master

He has worked here since 2008. When he joined,
the factory had only 6 employees and was located in Dhaka.
Since then, that number has grown to 160,
and his job has extended to monitoring all production.

He visited Japan in 2010, which was his longtime dream. Being able to have spoken with customers is his greatest memory.

"I realized that we can make dreams come true in this factory", he said.
