New sensation wool-like fabric
"Karl Karl-KS®" is a new material derived from Karl Karl® by I.S.T. Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture, President: Hanne Toshiko, from now on referred to as "I.S.T."). Karl Karl-KS® was developed by combining Komatsu Matere's high-level post-processing technology for creating new differentiated synthetic fiber materials. Although being made of synthetic fiber, Karl Karl-KS® introduces a "new feeling to synthetic fiber material" with a texture and function that transcends natural materials through joint development.
For two years after the development in 2015, we continued to improve the material. Now, we are proud to announce the evolution model of Karl Karl-KS® with more variations and functions than ever before.
By this, you can propose a new type of item overturning conventional common sense.
