Using local thinned wood as raw material,
The charm of wood thread that circulates nature

Wood thread is a type of thread made by processing Japanese paper (washi) from thinned woods such as cedar and cypress, which are thinned to keep local forests healthy. ※1

Currently, most of the raw materials for natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk are imported. “Wood thread” is a completely new material made from Japanese paper fabric using local thinned wood, a natural resource that can be produced domestically. Some people may be concerned about pollen when they hear about cedar or cypress, but since the thinned wood is turned into chips and then into Japanese paper before being made into thread, it contains almost no pollen. ※2

※1The composition is labeled as an unclassified fiber (washi).

※2 Please note that in rare cases, some people may have a sensitive reaction to the cedar or cypress wood itself.

Natural functionality in clothing

Anti-bacterial and odor-resistant

Prevents odor by suppressing the growth of bacteria caused by sweat and other factors.


The specific gravity of Japanese paper is approximately 1/3 that of cotton.
The fiber is much lighter than cotton, so you can experience a light and airy comfort.

UV protection

Fabrics woven with wood thread are resistant to UV rays and have excellent UV protection effects.


The color is a gentle natural hue but each piece is slightly different. It will fit your body as you wear it and the natural texture of the garment gives it appeal. It is a special piece just for you.

To make wood threads

Logging necessary to protect forests

Forests cannot grow large if the spaces between the trees are too crowded, so it is necessary to cut down trees that are poorly growing or crooked. Thus, we have developed a fashion brand of clothing and other products using wood thread made from local wood harvested this way.

Weaving/sewing by craftsmen

Wood threads made from thinned wood are used to weave and sew clothing and other items. Truly “Made in Japan”, we entrust the sewing to domestic manufacturers who share our passion and vision. You can feel the high quality of our products, which can only be achieved by Japanese sewing professionals who work with numerous brands.

How the fabric is made

  • 01.
  • Collection of thinned wood

    Thinned wood is collected from the forest at appropriate intervals. The thinned wood is made into chips and the fibers are extracted.
  • 02.
  • Making paper

    The thinned wood is processed into paper-thin sheets. At this stage, the wood becomes fibrous, and from this, 100% thinned wood Japanese paper (washi) is created, which will be converted into thread later in the process.
  • 03.
  • Slitting

    This is the process of cutting (slitting) Japanese paper into long, thin strips. This process produces paper for weaving and knitting.
  • 04.
  • Twisted thread

    This is a process of making wood thread made from thinned wood by twisting slit paper together.
  • 05.
  • Weaving/Sewing

    Twisted threads are used to weave cloth, which is then sewn to produce clothing and other items. At this stage, design and functionality come together.

Naturally circulating Alveri

Additionally, Alveri, which uses wood thread, is biodegradable (capable of returning to the soil). The nutrient-rich soil produced by biodegradation nurtures new nature. Wood thread can also be re-cellulosed, which holds the potential for recycling into resin products and the like. Alveri aims not only to utilize thinned wood but also to collect used clothing and return it to the forest. This creates a cycle of ‘plant → nurture → harvest → use → return’, aiming for a sustainable, nature-rich, recycling-oriented society.
