1895

Jisaburo Teranishi, the founding father of GTO Co., Ltd, encouraged local people to make hand-combed nets for hammocks as a side business, and began sales of their products. The hammock nets were used in the November 1932 Imperial Japanese Army Special Grand Maneuver and the Imperial Progress to the Provinces, and their quality was highly regarded.
