Takumi International Sdn Bhd Forms Business Partnership in Malaysia's EC Site Industry

~Supporting Cross-Border E-Commerce Sales of Japanese Traditional Crafts and Apparel~

Bridge International Asia Sdn Bhd, a comprehensive marketing company based near Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is pleased to announce its business partnership with Takumi International Sdn Bhd, a retail business operating in Malaysia, to promote and support the sales of Japanese traditional crafts and apparel in the Southeast Asian market through EC sites.

Many countries in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, have witnessed a rapid expansion of the e-commerce market, where consumers make purchases online through EC sites and social media platforms. On the other hand, Japanese traditional crafts and similar products have had limited exposure online, with their historical background, traditions, and product values being relatively less showcased in the international market.


Hence, through this partnership, Takumi International aims to introduce the appeal of these Japanese products to the Southeast Asian market in languages such as English and Chinese, and to expand into new markets through sales on EC sites. Bridge International Asia will provide technical support for cross-border e-commerce and offer digital marketing strategies, supporting international success from a technical perspective.


Opening of an EC Site with Kimono as the First Step

As the inaugural step of this partnership, we are delighted to announce the launch of a new EC site with "kimono" as the central theme. This kimono-themed site offers a wide range of products, including hijabs made from Japanese kimono fabrics and fashion accessories, all produced in Japan. We aim to provide products that blend Japanese culture with Malaysian fashion trends.

Access to the kimono site is as follows:

With over 50 successful multilingual website projects, Bridge International Asia is well-equipped to leverage its experience and achievements to support Takumi International in its international market expansion efforts and assist in establishing an effective digital presence.


Being based in Malaysia, Takumi International benefits from its multicultural and diverse perspective to discover the appeal of Japanese products from a fresh angle. We are committed to bridging language and cultural gaps, helping convey the charm of Japanese products to Malaysia and the world at large.

The partnership between Bridge International Asia and Takumi International aims to introduce the value of Japanese traditional crafts and apparel to the people of Southeast Asia and strive for success in new markets.
