We will be promoting a change to SPA (speciality store retailer of private label apparel) style business by drawing on our sensitivity to the latest fashion trends, our planning expertise and our impressive production capacity both within Japan and overseas, which we have built up over years of successful operations.
By not having to work through wholesalers but instead facing customers directly in our own retail space, we will be able to sense and swiftly respond to market needs as well as to speed up our product development process. Over the coming years, Caitac Group intends to expand its SPA chain and will develop and establish in-house brands with significant consumer appeal.
We will be redoubling our effort, so that we continue to provide products and services that can truly delight our customers, and seek to expand and open up new fields of business with our pioneering spirit.
We offer fashion labels that embrace contemporary needs and continue to create the next trends. Our boutique shops showcase tasteful items selected through the expert eyes of our buyers. In addition to our main functions as a textile trader and SPA-style apparel company, Caitac Group’s businesses extends to jewelry, furniture, general household accessories and even to the development of talent in the fashion industry. We strive to propose lifestyles to suit a wide range of audiences, centred around sophistication and fashion.
