About the product
The newly developed material "Balancircular" (trademark registered *) is used to achieve a weight reduction to less than 200g for trousers and less than 300g for jackets. The stretch effect of PTT fibre makes them even easier to move around in and the wear has an elegant matte lustre and a soft, supple feel. From a humid and hot outdoor environment to an air-conditioned indoor environment, "Balancircular" can bring a fresh impression when you enter the room with you. Compact and portable, it is recommended for business people who travel a lot for work or who want to wear a jacket on the way to and from golf! (*Balancircular is a registered trademark in Japan, the UK, South Korea, China and the EU.)Amazingly light!
Balancircular trousers are 100g lighter than our conventional medium-size trousers, and weigh approximately the same as one peach! The jacket also weighs about 260g, lighter than one apple and the 280g of our conventional packable jacket. The jacket features a texture that does not lose shape and is wrinkle-resistant, allowing it to be worn in any TPO or temperature. A stable piece with a great fit in a design that can be used for any purpose. Can be worn as a set-up or as a single item. (Both in comparison with our products) What is Balancircular?
Balancircular is an original fabric that is knitted by hand by artisans. It looks like a woven fabric even though it is a cut-and-sew garment. So to speak, it is a great fabric that can also be used for cut-offs, with the construction of 1920 warp threads (which are not normally used) in the process of knitting normal cut-and-sew fabrics. It was born from a new idea that is not limited to circular knitting (cut and sewn items). The expression and form stability of this material is the result of 1920 threads being threaded by the hands of craftsmen, which remains unchanged to this day. The finished fabric is thin, lightweight, and has a slight bounce. It is also machine washable! Light and Airy Design
The face of the jacket is the collar. The Balancircular Jacket collar is slightly shifted from the edge of the lapel to give a soft impression. The cuffs are cut with two buttons, and the seam allowance is piped for a clean look even when the sleeve is rolled up quickly. The trousers also have a drawcord on the waist's backside, allowing you to tighten or loosen the cord according to your size and preferred comfort level. And the sides are slightly elasticized, so they can be worn without being affected by eating or drinking. The jacket is a two-button tailored type that is easy to wear, and the trousers are a semi-tapered silhouette Balancircular with no tucks.
Balancircular jacket and trousers can be worn comfortably both indoors and outdoors, where temperatures can vary greatly. Please enjoy both lightweight, stretchy ease of movement and elegant design.

About the maker
We, MARUWA KNIT CO., LTD, founded in 1934, manufacture and sell Balancircular, a trademarked famous material that is popular both domestically and internationally. The Balancircular is our unique material. We launched a new factory brand in 2016 to utilise the strengths of Balancircular. We have been supplying knit fabrics mainly to trading companies and domestic and international apparel companies, but we are now working with designers, pattern makers and other external members to deliver the best form of "Balancircular", a knit fabric that only we can produce in the world, to our customers.
It has been 80 years since its beginnings in Wakayama, an old cotton production area. At the time, the company manufactured cotton-based knit fabrics and items using hand knitting machines and sock knitting machines. Then we started dealing in acrylic products, and at its peak, acrylics accounted for 40% of all materials produced. The company was known as "Maruwa Knit when it comes to acrylics." All the machines in the factory have been converted in-house to handle acrylic products, and combined with the original modified knitting machines, the result is a textile that can never be copied. Thereafter, there were headwinds in the textile industry in Japan, but the Balancircular was born out of a spirit of valuing "manufacturing that cannot be imitated".
Today it is recognised as a knitting factory that develops raw yarns, machines, and post-processing in a three-pronged approach, always offering fresh materials and timely proposals for apparel and textiles. With a wide variety of knitting machines, the factory can produce almost all types of circular knitted fabrics. Aim to become a specialist in the knitting industry, working only on "knit" as if it were a single thread that makes up a knit.
