What are the points of differences for como!come! and others?

The embroidery of our putter cover is made in China. The Chinese embroidery has long been well-established for beauty. Some designers select some from hundreds of embroidery thread having gradational delicate colors. At first, rough design drawn by such designers who turned from graphic world had been said to be too fine to be done embroidered by machine, but we were desperate to make the products with embroidery as same as the design drawing, so decided to risk failure.
As a result, the factory provided us the amazingly beautiful finished work. But however great the design may be, the finishing depends on the taste of the person who makes punching card that is a base data for instructing the computer how to sew.
Being seemingly same, each finishing becomes to be completely different depending on each number of needles and each way of getting thread through the machine.
If we reduce the number of needle to save cost (the more the number of needle is, the higher the cost is.) or make every way of thread being all same for saving many steps, the finished embroidery will lose a three-dimensional appearance and be two-dimensional finishing. On the other hand, to make it be three-dimensional, we have to think the order of needle threading first. The more colors we use, the more complex the work becomes and the more time it requires, which of course increases the number of needle thread and raise the cost for embroidering. The record-setting number of needle thread is over 80 thousands which is hardly believed as embroidery decorated for a small putter cover.
For us who had been living in the graphics world, it didn't click in our minds how much exceptional it is at first. As we have made some new products, however, we have been learned that craftsman's skill is vital for casting 'Design' into 'Shape'. Making punching cards is also honorable craftsmanship. No matter how hard we try, many things that we cannot make are still existed in this world without such craftsmen.
Xie xie (Thank you) for the Chinese craftsmen!!
"Taking advantage of the design with jacquard as well as ensuring the permanence." It is the Comocome's knitting head covers which we were working with this antinomy to make. It is an actual condition that normal knitting head cover is likely worn because of its material. Furthermore, it will be less durable by finer knitting yarn used if we emphasize design too much. But then again, by too thick yarn used, we can use only the simple design. In order to break out of the dilemma, we have solved some problems in making our products by trial and error with some knitting craftworkers and our Comocome's designers. We have explored the end of the improvement cycle of the design representation with the appropriate thickness of yarn, in addition, made our head covers two-tiered for more durability. (fig.4) Moreover we have worked to make sure that users can enjoy using it with the different material from the other items like putter covers by making it dyed our original colors. Additionally, our own special big pompon is made by hand!
This is how we have completed our own prized knitting head covers.
We would like you to try our items out of such obsessiveness.
Now the mass production abroad including China is mainstay for most golf bags.
All of the golf bags made by the mass production line abroad are low cost but really made well. Why can such a beautiful product be made by such low cost that far?
One of the reasons is that it is made with the parts such as mouth case, hand, zipper, and bottom part by mass production. In addition to the low personnel expenses abroad, using the ready-made parts can save a significant cost.
For the golf bags (Pro optimized) as that of our first work, we placed utmost priority on the design that black color was completely cut off. Because no matter how colorful body part it has, the overall atmosphere of the bag has to be similar with the stereotyped
golf bags if we use the black color even for only one part like the mouth case and the bottom part, so we decided to use the similar colors with the body color (fig.5) for the mouth case, the handle, zipper, the bottom part and even for the pocket back fabric. It is still the Japanese craftsmen whose skill have such persistence enable. They are now only a few golf bag crfaftworkers, besides; it is also still Japan where we can select our fond colors, materials and parts, so it has consequently been by domestic production. Although it has to cost so much, we emphasize the limited color variation is lessened by choosing the domestic production. As we introduce from "The masterpiece of Japanese Specialist called TAKUMI" in our website, http://www.comocome.com/column/, it is mostly carried out by hand, so it cannot be mass produced. That is why we can sell only 30 pcs for each color at once.
It will be our great pleasure if you feel 'the Comocome' s golf bag is something different from the others'.
High-tech function material has been developed and golfing in winter season has become much more comfortable than ever. But do you wonder why we ComoCome stick with wool sweater? Our Comocome staff who likes golfing found the ultimate combination for comfortable golfing even in winter.
At first, underwear: a fad functional shirt (including the muscle supporting function). On the underwear, long-sleeved high-necked shirt HEATTECH processed. Additionally short-sleeved wool sweater on them. Only wearing 3 items is enough for playing Golf in winter in Kanto area in Japan. Even though wearing 3 items, players are not overdressed and can play smooth swing. If players put pocket warmers on the back, they may want to take their sweaters off afternoon because of too hot pocket warmer. Most of all, the knit retractility is excellent! If you are worried about chill in the early morning and the early evening, it is OK that you just prepare one ultrathin windcheater in the golf bag pocket.
With long sleeved sweater, someone must feel their shoulders hard to move. However, only with vest, they must feel a slight chill. We especially recommend such golf players to try this 3-item combination. What if the flying distance is improved to 5 yards more? We are sure that someone must want to use our combination. The difference of 5 yards by iron club is large, isn't it?
Female golfers tend to have ideas and actions that the male golfers would never hit upon. We have often heard, "putter covers are disturbing me on green". Men squeeze their putter covers into their back pockets when they putt a ball. But ladies golf trousers are so tight that there is no space in the pocket for putter covers to be put into. Accordingly, they throw it out of the way on green, putt a ball and pick it up after putting. So that means the extra action is required. Quite a number of people leave their covers on the courses they played. From such worries, in other words, serendipity in neuroscience terms, 'Baby Tail' flashed on our mind. The first idea is the flat item as name plate, but it is our current item born from our genius (!?) designer's word "I want to make it from the matching putter cover." In addition, it has some convex parts that can obtain the higher functionality that it becomes difficult to be slipped off from the pocket.
For Comocome, such outrageous opinions and selfishness from the female golfers are treasury of ideas.
Hi, all female golfers! We hope you criticize something inconvenient and out of date without restraint. We appreciate if you take time to leave your precious comments!
