Literally translated, Mujirushi Ryohin, the name by which MUJI was originally known, means “no brand quality goods”. The value of the MUJI product is in what it is, even without the name of the brand and/or the name of person designing it. The core of MUJI products lies in its flexibility and modesty to fit different thoughts and styles of the individuals. MUJI does not direct its product range at any one particular sector, rather aims to be universally relevant. MUJI products maintain reasonable price levels, not by compromising quality, but by careful selection of materials and the elimination of unnecessary production processes and wasteful packaging.
MUJI, originally founded in Japan, sells a wide variety of household, apparel and food products since 1980. From its beginning, MUJI has been committed to streamlining processes, selection of materials and simplification of packaging to provide good quality products at reasonable prices. Addition to more than 385 MUJI stores in Japan now, 255 stores in other countries including Asia, Europe, and the USA. In April 2014, MUJI CANADA LIMITED was founded as a subsidiary of Ryohin Keikaku Co., Ltd. (http://ryohin-keikaku.jp/eng/), brand holder of MUJI, to make an inroad to the Canadian market.
