Designer Yusuke Yanaghi started the brand In the year of 2000 after returning home from his fashion studies in the U.K. and working for a Japanese company for a few years. He initially started producing small collections in this year and then in 2009, when the company Style Department was established with the brand, STILL BY HAND started offering its full collections. The brand's basic rules are to make its products with Japanese fabrics, in Japan, with an open-minded approach to the colors. The nature of the country, which is vertically fairly long and has distinguished four seasons, always has a significant influence on what it creates. They produce their items preserving and cherishing tiny little details that are often eliminated in the mass production on the assembly line. Their customers will hopefully find them as they wear the clothes everyday and share the feeling that their clothes are still made by hand.
