As true universal design,
A service that will make you forget that there are two sides to your underwear.
Since planning HONESTIES in 2018, I have always been thinking about the possibilities of this service. For busy modern people, business people, child-rearing people, sports people, and many other people will definitely find it a convenient service. In addition, while conducting various monitoring surveys, we received an unexpected welcome from people in nursing care and medical care, and from people with disabilities.
In particular, I heard from a person with a visual impairment that in order to check the front and back of the underwear, "I touch the name tag on the underwear and it is on the inside of the left side, so I confirm that I am wearing it correctly." reality. I strongly felt that HONESTIES ∞ could fundamentally eliminate these inconveniences, and I continued to develop it.
The aim is a world where "everyone forgot that underwear had two sides". We will continue to improve our services in order to create such a future where true universal design is realized.
