The Japanese startup that’s been making jeans for the past year has opened its doors in San Francisco.
Juki, which has more than 60 employees, has been developing and manufacturing denim in a warehouse for about a year.
The company has been looking to open more warehouses, and now it has opened a first one in San Jose.
Juki uses an advanced machine to make a single pair of jeans for each person, according to CEO Takashi Takahashi.
Jukio was founded by the late Japanese fashion designer Masaru Yano, who was a pioneer of the “seamless” design.
The brand’s founder says the brand has the potential to reach a wider audience, as people with special needs can now wear their jeans with pride.
“People who can’t wear jeans because they’re too short have to wear a pair of pants that have a seam that’s wider,” Takahash said.
The jeans have elastic waistbands, and they can also be folded up and tucked into their pants pockets.
“The jeans are the fabric of the future,” Takash said, adding that the company is also working on other fabrics that would be a better fit for people with a wide range of needs.
Jukio has been making denim for the last five years.
The company currently has two locations in San Diego and San Jose, with the first location in San Mateo, California.
In December, the company announced plans to open an office in Chicago.
Jukuya will have a website, Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter.
