Dear Japanese press and media,
10 MORE CO., LTD.
A must-see for textile lovers! Taiwanese sock brand “+10 Tenmore” collaborates with Japanese textile brand “JUBILEE”
Designing textiles from “onomatopoeia” of both Japan and Taiwan
The “Ishindenshin” series was created in collaboration with the popular Japanese textile brand “JUBILEE” by the sock brand “+10 Tenmore” from Taiwan. Living in the same Asia, we arrived at the method of designing textiles from the “onomatopoeia” of Japan and Taiwan. For those of us who speak different languages, onomatopoeia and mimetic words are important communication tools. We researched Japanese onomatopoeia for “+10 Tenmore” and Taiwanese (European) for “JUBILEE” and expressed them by copying the sounds and modes of the sounds. Four years of conception and development while going back and forth between Japan and Taiwan. “How do you feel and how do you express what I feel?”
The charm of onomatopoeia that transcends language barriers
As I continued to talk about Japanese and Taiwanese onomatopoeia, I felt that “+10 Tenmore” was “a little like you, a little like me.” I was. In both languages, onomatopoeia can accurately convey even the most sensitive emotions. For example, the Japanese word for the way the world seems to shake when you get really drunk is “beronberon”, but there is an expression in Taiwanese, “Ma 西 馬西 (ma² se1 ma² se1)”. Come to think of it, the Taiwanese word for heavy rain is 颯颯 (sa² sa²), but in Japanese it sounds like a light rain, not a heavy rain. Through onomatopoeia, even such delicate nuances can be conveyed. The theme of “Ishindenshin” was born from the idea of ”JUBILEE” from this dialogue.

The sock brand “+10・Tenmore” is based on the Japanese onomatopoeia, and “JUBILEE” is based on the Taiwanese onomatopoeia. 3 types of 2-color textiles with a total of 6 patterns (silkscreen printed with dyes at a Japanese textile printing factory) We have a total of 6 patterns of socks (manufactured in Taiwan) in 3 types of 2 colors each.
Three concept film movies created with Japanese and Taiwanese creators [Image 4
In the “Ishindenshin” series, we created three concept film movies in collaboration with up-and-coming creators from Japan and Taiwan, transcending the realm of textiles.
Globally active Taiwanese dancer Hu Chien was photographed on 8mm film by teikoukei, a photographer active in Japan and Taiwan. After shooting, the film is sent to Japan, developed, and digitized. The music was provided by the Japanese unit “Tenniscoats”, and we were able to create a worldview that transcends the boundaries between Japan and Taiwan.
