In 1983, Jhane Barnes visited Sanwa Textiles in Aichi, Japan first time as 10th mill's visit in Japan. It was through, Mr. Matsumoto, Sumitomo and Mr. Inukai, Alpha Co., Ltd.
The merchandiser, Andrew Maag (currently the president of Burberry Group) came to visit to Sanwa Textiles, 3 times a year for product development.
Jhane and Andrew spent almost 18 hours a day at the design studio while their stay in Japan.
All designing, costing and sometimes booking sample and bulk were done in that studio.
Mr. Koji Kawada, his wife Noriko, his daughters, Ayaka, Nami and Mana visited our office on 4/25 from North Carolina. They have been very close to our team since 1998, before they got married. It was very nice to have them here in New York again.
Creative Design Director, Ms. Dorothy Cosonas and designer, Ms. Nikki Rubalcaba visited our office. Katsu New York has been supplying contract textiles for last 26 years. They are the longest lasting customer of ours. Very thankful, we still have business today.
