C.L.A.S.S. (Creativity Lifestyle And Sustainable Synergy) and Cihon Tec have announced a collaborative partnership aimed at spreading their work on innovation and sustainability in the lifestyle industry internationally. Cihon Tec, the Japanese specialist in plant dye technology, will join CLASS as Ad-Honorem Partner and will act as a technical advisor. Cihon Tec is CLASS' first partner in Asia and this represents a key landmark achievement in exporting CLASS' innovative business model internationally.

We believe this partnership is important in furthering knowledge and sharing ideas, concepts, products and techniques to benefit the sustainable lifestyle industry as a whole.”

The agreement includes a number of joint activities and areas of collaboration. CLASS will assist Cihon Tec in introducing itself into the western textile, yarn and apparel markets through its knowledge and network of manufacturers and designers as well as through its communication campaigns and showroom activities in London, Milan and New York.

Similarly, Cihon Tec will be instrumental in supporting CLASS' and its activities in its home market. Both companies will share knowledge and know-how regarding the newest materials, fibres, dyeing techniques and other related subjects.
