In 1928 the Yasui brothers introduced the first chain-stitch sewing machine for producing straw hats. It was the first product marketed with the "Brother" brand, which was named after the Yasui brothers' collaborative effort. They initially they chose a company name of "Sister" because the majority of sewing machine users were women, but it turned out the name was already registered by another company. Drawing inspiration from their strong family ties, the founders decided to go with "Brother".
By 1971, sewing machines and typewriters became the company's flagship products, exporting to 110 countries around the world. The company mission is to provide customers with sewing and embroidery products that are fun, easy to use and can provide a myriad of ways to enhance their creativity.
