What is Altair?

“The Legend of the Milky Way”

A gift of real, genuine gratitude.

As beautiful and elegant as the Milky Way

Altair is the brightest star in the Aquila constellation and is also known as ‘The Eagle Star’ – the 12th brightest star in the night sky. According to the Tanabata legend, the star Orihime (also known as ‘Vega’) shines on the opposite bank of the Milky Way from Hikoboshi (the star Altair).

The Milky Way: a thing of mystery and beauty. When put simply, it is a galaxy that includes our own solar system. It can even be seen from our own night sky, our entire world enveloped by it. The spiraling Milky Way Galaxy cradles Earth within its immense and tremendous dance through space.

A tie as beautiful as the stars to bring light and radiance to your work.

In the summer night sky, scattered with various stars throughout, the Milky Way has a preeminent presence created by its vastness, episodes, and above all, the overwhelming beauty of tens of millions of glowing stars. The beauty of kimono fabric is also like the beauty of the great universe. There is an unspoken beauty that can only be felt by the heart. Altair’s neckties are crafted with this very feeling at their core. Give someone the light of the stars: give them Altair.

Enrich the heart with Luxury.


If luxury is defined as “a thing that enriches people’s hearts,” what is produced from the handicrafts of craftsmen is a true luxury item. Through craftsmanship, its artistry may go beyond everyday needs and reach a far higher level, alongside Mozart and Bach. Beyond space-time, over the heavens, to the other side of the Milky Way galaxy where Orihime and Hikoboshi meet.
