The Japanese apparel industry is planning to use ‘J Quality’ tag on its products to differentiate high-quality products made in Japan, in which three processes: weaving, dyeing and sewing are carried out locally. The presently used ‘Made in Japan’ label includes products that are made using imported fabric but are sewn together in Japan. The ‘J Quality’ tag will differentiate those products that use locally made fabric from the ones that use imported fabric. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry is likely to extend its support to the use of ‘J Quality’ tag on suits, shirts and sweaters; likely to keep shoes and bags out of the list.
