About Side slope

Knit products to further enrich your life

SIDE SLOPE is a knit brand born in Japan.We aim to discover materials that are valuable and excellent in functionality from all over the world and to create one-and-only knitwear using outstanding knitting technology and unique ideas.

Brand Concept

Italian yarn with beautiful colors, handcrafted buttons from Nepal, yarn using unique spinning technology in China, and the delicate dyeing technology of Japan… SIDE SLOPE creates knitwear combining great technology from every corner of the world.

What we value the most is “comfort” and “essence”. Feeling comfort on your skin the moment you wear the knitwear. Feeling the essence of human beings respecting nature and enjoying life to the fullest. SIDE SLOPE offers products that deliver such personal experiences.
And the biggest feature of the brand is its design full of creativity that can be materialized only with our deep knowledge of knitting. For example, we are inspired by leftover yarn in the factory, a snippet of a knit fabric or an old knitting machine. Other moments in life such as experiences during travel, moments on a street corner and encountering different people are all important elements in inspiring the design ideas for SIDE SLOPE products.
Our job is not just to make products and sell them. We carry a sense of responsibility to inherit and communicate the passion of all the workers involved with making SIDE SLOPE’s products. It is our wish that by wearing our knitwear your life will be filled with joy and happiness and will be further enriched.

“It is important to visit the site to learn the essence. Once you understand the essence, you know how to express it.”

Hiroki Wakisaka

Hiroki was born in 1972. After working as a knit designer for several apparel brands, he founded his own brand SIDE SLOPE in 2005. With full knowledge of the characteristics of the materials and the knitting factory’s technical capabilities, he creates one of a kind patterns and colors, developing ideas that integrate “luxury” and “comfort”. Sometimes he even designs yarn to push the boundaries of knitwear based on new ideas. He is always seeking ways to utilize knit fabric as a tool to enhance lifestyle in general, for example in art and interior categories, not just knitwear.
