Since its founding, as a canvas product manufacturing and processing company, we have received support both in Japan and overseas, such as many mountaineering expeditions (about 80 expeditions), academic research expeditions, Antarctic research expeditions (3 countries), and the Alaska Pipeline. , [Hosono in the tent] to this day.

Hosono's canvas products use No. 9 canvas with special waterproofing (paraffin processing) that was used for ship sails, and all processes from cutting to sewing are done by hand.
We do not pursue only "good looks" in all of our products, but rather make use of our long-cultivated manufacturing technology for outdoor products that are used under harsh conditions. ”, ”Robust” is thoroughly pursued, so it boasts durability that can be used splendidly even after being used for more than 30 years.
