Concept モデルのコンセプト

TOMMY, the first long-awaited backpack from our representative collection, is suitable for daily use, travel, and every other occasion. This one really stands out. Made from an entire fireman’s uniform. This model really reflects what is possible when we turn discarded material into something with renewed value and fashion sense.


Design モデルのデザインについて



The khaki fireman uniform from Nagoya city is known as a rare color among fireman uniforms in Japan. The color has a vintage and military feel that add to your sense of fashion and ruggedness. For men and women.


The fireman uniform of NV series from Kawasaki city combines vintage and urban looks and is potentially easier to coordinate compared to the other series. Deep navy harkens to the days of the working man’s denim. The material is highly durable and relishes in the functionality of aramid fabric and future work ahead.

BE/Toyota vintage

The beige fireman uniform from Toyota city was retired in 2015 due to a major design change the following year. This is the very last chance to have the previous Toyota city fireman uniform. Warm sand beige and lattice-shaped yellow beige make and impressive casual look with orange reflector, there really is nothing like it.

Material 素材について

The firefighter’s uniform is tough and durable to protect against disaster. After roughly two years it is then replaced due to strict quality standards in place for protective clothing. As this uniform is based on aramid fabric which is used in bulletproof vests, it is incredibly strong and durable. Even after its roll as a protective uniform has ended, MODECO gives this fabric a new narrative as a bag with superb functionality highlighting flame-resistant and waterproof qualities.


Production 製造について

Collection, washing, disassembly, cutting, repairing and building are all done in Japan. The fireman uniform requires more processes for production. Long lead times to produce a one of a kind product means mass production isn’t possible. All series are limited.

Social Issues この素材が抱える社会問題

This firefighter’s uniform collection started as a new design line born from a collaboration with the Fire Department of the city of Nagoya in 2013. This was the world’s first joint up-cycle design effort combining both public (city) and private (fashion brand) sectors.

This sustainable cooperation encourages reducing public industrial waste as well as promoting the public sector’s approach in environmental friendliness.

Three other cities joined the collaboration in 2016. Firefighter’s uniforms from these cities have different designs and colors depending on where they come from. Additional unique selections are expected to launch soon.
