FOOTMARK began as a manufacturer of baby diaper covers in Sumida-ku, Tokyo in 1946.
In the 1970s, we shifted the business to the development, production and sales of school swimming caps, and today are Japan’s leading provider of swimming caps and swimwear for school children.
In the 1980s, we started developing nursing care products as a new business category ahead of other companies, and we invented the Japanese word “kaigo,” which means nursing care.
In 2002, we developed the “Feel Aligner” clothing series in collaboration with a Japanese university. “Feel Aligner” is a body and mind education series which helps people to be aware of proper posture. We are currently expanding our sports innerwear business.
