Born and bred in Osaka, Dubbleworks produces vintage-inspired clothing with the legendary Japanese attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Founded 20 years ago, Dubbleworks is the stylish, hip child of a venerable parent, Sankei Meriyasu. Established in 1926, Sankei began its life as a manufacturer of athletic wear and gym uniforms, even supplying the Imperial House of Japan with such garments.
Dubbleworks’ products combine elegant, modern flair with vintage craftsmanship. Instead of relying solely on automated spinning machines, Dubbleworks uses Marudo knitting machines--little changed since their introduction in the early 1920s. The unique signature of Marudos is their lack of side seams: because these machines create tubular fabrics, craftsmen only have to cut the fabric once, horizontally. Though this production method does take longer to finish, it also boasts unparalleled comfort, quality, and style.
