Mr Fujimoto × Ms Ishizuka discuss the new ‘tamaki niime’

藤本「「タマスク」創りのものすごく大きな経験があったから、こういう場合にはこうゆう風に動けば、一気に皆んなが連動出来るんだという。今創るモノっていうのはものすごいスピード感を求められるので、そのために、個人個人じゃなくて、合体していく・混ぜていく、それで機能させてゆく、というのが会社として目指している大きなところだと思いますね。」
石塚「過去やってきたやり方が100%良いというわけではないし、今現場で動いてることと過去やってたことを一緒に、それこそ混ぜ合わせて。ひとがいるからこそ、色んな視点で観れるというのが、2年前にはなかったことなので、すごく新鮮だし、より良くなってることってたくさんありますね。」

Mr Fujimoto × Ms Ishizuka discuss the new ‘tamaki niime’

藤本「「レベルアップ」というのは、単純にモノづくりのスキルだけではないところが、今求められているんじゃないかなと。スタッフそれぞれがより俯瞰して全体を観れる・客観視出来るような「幅」というか。チーム間の「壁」みたいなものを壊していくような作業を行っていってるんじゃないかなというのをすごく感じているところです。」
石塚「それはやっぱり、コロナがきっかけで、マスクを創りましょうと皆んなが同じ方向を向いた。チームは関係なく、スタッフそれぞれがそれこそ混ざり合うというか、そんな段階になったから、これまで確立してきたものを混ぜこぜにする。今、そういう時期なんじゃないかなと。」

ざっくばらん・言い合い放題、縫製チーム

〈最終回〉

馬込「「タマスク」や「たまふくろう」は色んな方たちに買っていただいているので、さらに若い人たちにも訴えかける、そんなモノづくりをしていきたいです。」
川畑「ひとの気持ちを明るく出来ると思うんですよ、ウチの生地だったり作品によって。今後やっていきたいのは、そんな精神に作用出来るような服とか作品の提案が出来ていけたらな、って思ってます。」
宮崎「私が昔やりたかったことを、ここまで成功させとってやから。昼間ここで、ここにある素敵な材料で、思いきり創りたいモノを創らせてもらって。すごい私、幸せモンやなぁと思う(笑)。」
鹿嶽「モノづくりが好きで、人を喜ばせることが好き。私もそこに共感してここに来てるから。そんな良い面をもっと広められたら。」

ざっくばらん・言い合い放題、「縫製チーム」

〈前半〉

Kawabata: Especially here, they prepare to complete garments from designs up to production. This is the only place we can work through the whole process.
Magome: I would like to work for the production company in the community rather than the leading apparel companies. It is very interesting to see the whole production process, which is very rare to see.
Katake: I wanted a sewing job from the beginning. We can make our own materials and touch them before sewing, which help produce unique and original products. I feel this is the ideal company.
Miyazaki: After I met the boss and talked to her for the first time…I haven’t told anyone…on my way home I knew I had a bizarre, special feeling towards her that she was not like my sister or daughter.

The Gentle Flames of our Creative Ambitions the “Knit team”

Miyamoto: For the team goal, I would like to have the knit products become one of the leading shares in all "tamaki niime" products.
Nakamura: I hope I could make the best products that I can. Since we can handle the whole production process with WHOLEGARMENT, our team is very flexible in our work. This year, I want to try something new that I have never tried before.
Tu: Later, I want to focus on other daily products that could be favoured by customers, not for fashionable clothes.
Yamashita: I always have ideas in mind that I want for clothing that makes people give a little laugh when they wear them. I want to make people happy who wear what I've designed, which is what I've wanted since I was young. That has never changed.

The Gentle Flames of our Creative Ambitions the “Knit team”

〈part 1〉

Nakamura : It motivates me to see actual customers purchasing the products I made. It is an excellent opportunity for me to work where I could hear customers’ positive or negative comments directly.
Miyamoto : The most luxury I have is I am not making given items. I could use my own ideas, including choosing colours and see my products sold, which is impossible in other companies. I really appreciate that. It is not easy because products have to be the Only One item, which means we have to change colours in making another, but I am so happy when I can make good colour combinations, which is fun.
Yamashita : The main issue we have is how we could create unique products, which is different from other companies. We didn’t get approval from Ms Tamaki and worked until 2 or 3 am everyday….

"Weaving team" that weaves in six colours

〈part2〉

Nakao : Yes, I’m really involved in various jobs. Rather than nurturing people, they just have us do it, more and more. (laugh) What I want to do in the future is get more involved into design.
Murakami : Shawls can be made quickly, but we are making them ourselves, where as normal production takes half a year in production planning, so instead of three months, we can finish in a week. It is easy to move forward. E-commerce is currently growing, so there was an immediate reaction as to the kind of work needed.
Fujimoto : I think that through “weaving” we will be able to increase the number of challenges that we have never created before. Regardless of success or failure.
