Jackman History

Jackman is a factory brand with over 60 years of history, established in Fukui, Japan, with the soul of Mitsugu Tanabe-Founder of Tanabe Knitting. After WWII, Mr. Tanabe longed for American baseball, which drove him to quit his office job and build a sewing plant for baseball goods.

With his innate creativity, he invented many new technologies that are applied to Jackman's knitting today. Sharing the essence of "Amanojaku", a cheeky creature in Japanese folklore, the brand's craftsmanship showcases a unique perspective in cotton knitting.
