THE WORLD IS CLOSER ICONSPEAK × KAKEHASHI

by | Feb 20, 2017 | Updates |

The temperature is falling, which gives a hint that we are heading towards a full-fledged winter. Many of you may be surprised of the climate change and pulled out winter coats?

At Kakehashi Sports, we are steadily walking towards a new mission. We are starting a variety of projects, but this time in the blog I would like to talk about the partnership with, “ICONSPEAK (icon-speak)”.

A Smart Conversation With One Finger

There are 196 countries in the world, the number of languages is said to be in the thousands. A lot of people in those countries don’t speak Japanese, and in some of them they don’t speak English either. Have you ever experienced difficulty communicating in a different country?

ICONSPEAK is an apparel brand that was born in Switzerland in February 2016.
They manufacture t-shirts with simple icons printed on them, with the concept being that the wearer can communicate with anyone.

With 40 universal icons printed on it -such as car, toilet, and food- the traveler can easily communicate by pointing at the appropriate icon. Combining practicality and fashion design is exactly what the next-generation traveler needs!

Connecting the world in communication
ICONSPEAK T will play the role of a bridge if a word is not understood. Kakehashi believes in this vision.

Kakehashi signed an agreement with ICONSPEAK this year, and has started selling their official T-shirts online. Our company is the only distributor in Japan! Kakehashi will continue to help with the “bridging” of new brands into Japan.

Not only can ICONSPEAK T-shirts be used when visiting overseas, but it can also be used to communicate with foreigners from other countries who are visiting Japan! With the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games and 2019 Rugby World Cup in Tokyo approaching, it is one of the items that you will want to have.

Thank you for your support!
