The History of Zanter
About 70 years ago, during the aftermath of the war, Japan was still under military occupation.
Just as the country was beginning to carve out a recovery for itself,
the first Japanese down wear was born.
The name of the brand was Zanter.
It was inspired by mountain climbers (mountaineers).
founded as the Down Wear Team of the company which currently known as Toyo Feather Industry, Co., Ltd., becoming the first domestic company to develop cold weather down gear for mountain climbing as well as down sleeping bags.
it’s named with a fierce spirit, one that bespoke the desire to create light, warm, and genuine mountaineering gear by Japanese hands, with the time when a few people could have the luxury of enjoying such a leisure in that era.
In 1956, we’ve been starting to supply Down Wear to Japan’s Antarctic Research Expedition team and others too.
Time passed, and nowadays people wear down jacket in a town as well as during outdoors excursions.
We Zanter keep providing products with warmth and joy during even in the cold winter seasons in the world.
