ABOUT USCUT Directionについて

Nishisei Material Co.,Ltd. (Kyoto), one of the parent companies of CUT Japan, has over 60 years’ experience in the fabric business. In 2002, with a wealth of experience behind us, we entered into the interior design market with our new product line, “laser cut fabric screen”. It became the perfect combination of fabric knowledge and leading edge laser cutting technology.
Since then we have provided clients of various fields of interior design with very unique and valuable solutions. In 2014 CUT Japan was established in Kyoto, Japan, to provide a more efficient operation and better serve our clients. In the same year, CUT Direction was established in Bangkok, Thailand, to extend our presence outside the Japanese domestic market.
