Based on these industrial knowledge and skills, carpet production began in 1935 when 7 carpet weaving artisans were invited from China. Soon afterwards the establishment of a new company, Oriental Carpet Co., Ltd. along with various subcontracting companies, made Yamanobe Town a big production area.
At first the carpets were exported mainly to the U.S. A., but their products were soon also sold elsewhere such as to the Vatican Palace in Europe. Since then their market has shifted domestically, though they are still famous for their high quality among many public organizations, and their products can be found in the Imperial Family Mansion and the Prime Minister's Official Residence
As these carpets are created entirely on site, from the weaving of the thread through the production of the finished goods, the products can be made at an extremely high level of quality.
The threads must be expertly dyed in order to hold up under the stresses of these techniques, and thus the company is the only one in Japan that has this special skill.
The company can also accomodate order-made products.
