MUJI products originated in 1980 to create quality products at low prices for Seiyu retail stores as described by the catchphrase “Lower priced for a reason.” The basis of our product development is to create products that are truly fundamental to day-to-day life without any unnecessary complexity. To achieve this, we take a second look at often neglected materials, streamline the production process, and simplify packaging to create simple, beautiful products that people will cherish for years.
We have built on this concept from the beginning, delivering MUJI goods and services designed with both the consumer and the manufacturer in mind to realize our vision of a simple, pleasant life for people around the world. At Ryohin Keikaku, our focus is on bringing pleasure to people and beauty to their lives, as well as contributing to society, through the very businesses in which we engage.
As a company driven by this vision, we make three corporate governance promises; focus our operational foundation on three principles of product development; and uphold three specific standards in production.
